  3. Martin

    Do you have Avengers: Black Panther’s Quest at 9 & 9:30 PM on Disney XD?


  4. Ryan

    Can I have: ‘Air Disasters’ and ‘Eight Days that Made Rome’ on Smithsonian at 8pm & 9pm? Thanks!


  5. Shan

    Counterpart numbers below the 150 from last week, any chance please


  6. Although Showtime’s Ray Donovan has gained it is still time for this show to wrap up. Much too dark. For the sake of being dark. Acting is terrific but it must end!


  7. Andrew Spey

    do you have the numbers ‘College Wrestling: North Carolina State at Ohio State’ on ESPN2 at 6PM? Thank you!

      Sorry, we don’t provide ratings here for sports events whose ratings are too low for both that day’s Top 150 and the weekly Skedball post.
