CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  It was an HBO theatrical movie premiere that topped Saturday cable, this time a bit surprisingly the largely unloved JUSTICE LEAGUE at 0.71 (two-tenths better than last week’s IT), and it was followed by another superhero theatrical, TNT’s CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR (not even a premiere!) at 0.39.  Adult Swim’s late-night line-up performed as follows:  DRAGON BALL down a tenth to 0.35, MY HERO ACADEMIA down 0.02 to 0.26/560K, FLCL down 0.06 to 0.21/443K, POP TEAM EPIC down 0.04 to 0.17/374K, JOJO’S BIZARRE ADVENTURES down 0.04 to 0.16, HUNTER X HUNTER steady at 0.18/435K, BLACK CLOVER down a tick to 0.17/400K, NARUTO down 0.04 to 0.17/359K, SPACE DANDY down a tick to 0.14/307K, COWBOY BEBOP up 0.03 to 0.15/304K, and LUPIN THE 3RD steady at 0.13/273K.  Travel Channel’s GHOST ADVENTURES dipped 0.02 to 0.32.  Fox Sports 1’s UFC PRELIMS was at 0.27.  A&E’s LIVE PD clip show was at 0.27/0.21.  HGTV’s BEACHFRONT BARGAIN HUNT ticked down to 0.25.  ID’s FEAR THY NEIGHBOR ticked down to 0.23.  HBO’s BILL MAHER LIVE special was at 0.22.  On TLC, SAY YES TO THE DRESS gained 0.03 to 0.18, and I WANT THAT WEDDING was up 0.02 to 0.15.  On Food Network, KITCHEN AT FN dropped 0.07 to 0.15, and PIONEER WOMAN was down 0.05 to 0.15.

    Wow, didn’t think I’d see a 0.0 A18-34 rating on one of the Big 4 nets.


  2. Destiny

    Mom is such a strong syndicated performer. Just watch CBS screw the show over and replace it with a flop CBS Studios comedy. They did the same with 2BG and a few others.
