    Do you know the ratings for Ninjago at 7:45 AM on Cartoon Network?


  2. Destiny

    For better or worse those World Beyond viewers are loyal to the show. And on another note, Pandora is easily the worse science fiction show ever made. There’s a reason why critics blessed the show with a 0 percent rt rating. It’s a truly awful show and they can’t hide behind the lack of budget either. The Syfy channel has had a lot of micro budget shows which are mostly OK because the shows aren’t staffed with people devoid of creative ability.

    I’m really liking the direction and story with Fear the Walking Dead this season. I really hope it continues because they have some really great actors on the show currently. World Beyond isn’t doing anything except dragging us Walking Dead fans through the mud with the intention of just learning details about a group that Rick is supposed to be apart of now and with the notice that it’s just a two season show, we don’t have to worry about a commitment, but I do find myself fast forwarding through most of the pointless talking scenes, which isn’t good…


  4. Justin P Killian

    22.8 million for bucs v Raiders. NFL is truly a juggernaut.


  5. Mark

    Wow! I’m going to enjoy this 6 part miniseries. Is that okay with you? What is being SOLD to 18-49 year olds on HBO? They released total viewers because that’s how they keep subscribers happy to watch their programming. I know you know this, and you’re just doing your job, but that’s pretty petty when HBO is the topic of discussion.

    It’s not TV, it’s HBO
