CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  AMC’s THE WALKING DEAD remained dominant, although it slid by another 0.20 to 3.79, with TALKING DEAD down a tenth to 1.30, and a Sunday season premiere of RIDE WITH NORMAN REEDUS (which then moves to Mondays) at 0.44.  Showtime’s SHAMELESS, despite airing directly against WALKING DEAD, had a terrific season premiere at 0.73, up 0.24 from the 2016 premiere (which only had to face FEAR THE WALKING DEAD).  This helped the series premiere of SMILF, which lost most of its lead-in at 0.25, but was still way ahead of other recent Showtime half-hours, and followed 2 weeks of online/VOD availability.  Lead-out WHITE FAMOUS also benefited, up 0.05 to 0.12.  Hallmark’s holiday movie MISS CHRISTMAS was healthy at 0.59.  On Adult Swim, SQUIDBILLIES edged up 0.02 to 0.43, and THE JELLIES held at 0.35.  On Starz, OUTLANDER ticked up to 0.34, and the season premiere of THE GIRLFRIEND EXPERIENCE was at 0.10/0.08 in its new back-to-back half-hour format, on par with last year’s 0.11/0.11 premiere.  On HBO, LAST WEEK TONIGHT gained 0.03 to 0.34, CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM rose 0.04 to 0.30, and VICE PRINCIPALS was up 0.04 to 0.27.  TNT’s GOOD BEHAVIOR was steady at 0.13.

The season premiere of Bravo’s REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA led the unscripted side at 0.97, with XSCAPE: STILL KICKIN IT at 0.68, and the season premiere of MARRIED TO MEDICINE at 0.60.  On E!, KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS had a 0.14 bump to 0.56, and WAGS returned at 0.20.  On TLC, 90 DAY FIANCE had a 2-hour episode at 0.48 compared to last week’s 0.58/0.47, and MY GIANT LIFE was down 0.04 to 0.24.  NBC Sports Net’s NASCAR race was at 0.44.  On Discovery, ALASKA: THE LAST FRONTIER ticked down to 0.34, and EDGE OF ALASKA was down 0.08 to 0.20.  On ID, ON THE CASE climbed 0.07 to 0.29.  On Food Network, GUY’S GROCERY GAMES was steady at 0.29, and GUY’S BIG PROJECT premiered at 0.18, followed by the premiere of VEGAS CAKES at 0.16/0.14.  HGTV’s line-up was led by HAWAII LIFE at 0.28/0.25, compared to last week’s 0.26/0.22.

    Great for Outlander. I hope The Walking Dead doesn’t fall too much. I think it’ll be paired again in March/April with Into the Badlands(Which is currently in production), and I’d love some more inflated episodes of that again to help it lol.

    Shameless did amazing, not that many cable shows these days can reach that 18-49 level.


  2. Marius

    Good numbers for Miss Christmas. Hallmark is really the king of programming when it comes to holidays


  3. Ryan

    Could I please have ‘Star Talk’ (Nat Geo, 11pm), and the 2 Smithsonian shows: ‘Air Disasters’ (8pm), and ‘Make it Out Alive’ (9pm)? If requests are limited to 2, then Smithsonian shows take precedence. Thanks!


  4. Mark

    Big Shameless fan watched it since the first episode, was going to give SMILF a chance but after the intro before Shameless started figured it was not for me and looking at the ratings for alot of other people also!


    • Rhee

      I didn’t think SMILF was very good. Story was all over the place and trying to cram too much into the first episode. Plus, I just wasn’t interested in the character. Won’t be watching it again. Shameless is a much better show, because the characters are just rich and interesting, just draws you in.


  5. Martin

    Do you have Guardians of the Galaxy at 9 am on Disney XD?


  6. KevinY

    SMILF was amazing! So creative and sweet! Frankie Shaw has to get nominated for this!


  7. superstorm

    TWD should be canceled immediately. Worst show.
