    Do you have Fox Sports 2 at 8:00 PM? Thank you Mitch.


  2. Amaury

    That sucks for Power Rangers: Ninja Steel, Game Shakers, and The After Party on Nickelodeon, but Saturday was the day of the hurricane, right? So it’s understandable. Also, with all the weather-related stuff, there was no chance Disney XD would make the list considering it hardly makes the list as it is since it’s on a higher tier on cable/satellite packages.

    I acknowledge that you likely don’t have anything below the top 150 currently, but when you do and if you’re able to, could you please provide the season two premiere numbers for Mech-X4 on Disney XD? 11:00 AM, 11:30 AM, 12:00 PM, 12:30 PM, and 1:00 PM.

    I realize that’s probably a lot, but I’m a regular editor of TV articles on Wikipedia, and it’s always nice to have the viewers for all episodes rather than having some with and some without. This is the only show I watch on Disney XD. The other networks I watch aren’t a problem because they always make the list. However, if you can’t provide the ratings for all those times, I’ll completely understand 100%. Thanks in advance either way.


  3. svsnt021

    Do you have ratings for ‘Dinner at Tiffani’s’ (FOOD, 12:30P)? Much thanks in advance, Mitch!


  4. Martin

    Do you have Pokemon the Series: Sun & Moon at 9 am on Disney XD and the Series Premiere of The Next Step at 9 pm and All Hail King Julien at 1 am on the new Universal Kids (formerly Sprout)? (and for the Latter Series this isn’t the regularly scheduled time for the show, nor do I expect the premiere rating to have very many views.)


    • Mitch Salem

      FYI, Nielsen still lists this network as Sprout. But whatever the name, at the level of the ratings below, we’re not going to be providing regular information about its programming.

      Sun: 0.04/257K
      Step: 0.01/47K
      King: 0.01/61K


  5. CS

    Oprah’s Master Class ratings?


  6. Do you have My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic 11:30AM on Discovery Family?


  7. Mary

    Do you have Mech-X4 at 11.00am on Disney XD? It was 5 new episodes back to back.


  8. Shangela

    Hi!
    Do you have Dare to Live episode on MTV @00:00
    They aired a double episode, first at 23:30 on Friday which did appear on the Top 150, but I have no idea on the second.

    Thanks!


  9. Zers Editor

    Do you have Sonic Boom at 6:00pm on Boomerang?


  10. James

    Do you have ratings for “Con Man”??? (Syfy, Six episodes from 10:00 p.m.)
