    Solid night for Fear the Walking Dead. The show should get a seventh and final season. With the mothership ending and the Daryl & Carol along with the anthology series being a thing I doubt AMC drags FTWD out much longer


    • Kissan

      I’d even go and say an 8th season is possible but just maybe. If it ends w S7 that’ll be the same yr that TWD will supposedly end (2022) and I don’t know if AMC will want both to end at the same time. But who knows..


      • Destiny

        You’re right a season 8 is possible but I think with this lineup

        – TWD Season 11(2021/22)
        – TWD: World Beyond Season 2(2021)
        – FTWD Season 7(2021-22)
        – TWD: Daryl/Carol(2023)
        – Tales from The Walking Dead(2023)

        AMC is more likely to go into 2023 with all new TWD universe shows. I’m expecting them to merge FTWD & TWD together and have the FTWD cast appear at the Commonwealth at some point.


  2. Philip

    Mitch, do you have Relentless on ESPN at 9pm?


  3. svsnt021

    Do you have the ratings for the ‘Kids Baking Championship’ special’s first airing at 9PM? Thank you!


  4. Martin

    Do you have Lego Marvel Avengers Climate Conundrum at 9 PM on Disney XD? Thanks.


  5. Joe

    Where are the HBO night premiere episodes? 9pm – The Undoing? 11pm – Last Week Tonight?


    • Joe

      Just to clarify.
      As seen here, for some reason, SHO Moonbase 8 and Our Cartoon President, as well as HBO Last Week Tonight and The Undoing’s ratings are currently unavailable through a Nielson error.

      http://www.thetvratingsguide.com/2020/11/sunday-cable-ratings-11820-christmas.html


      • Mitch Salem

        All of those ratings are now in the text for the post.


        • Joe

          The Undoing is at 9pm. It’s immediate rerun is at 10pm with the .03 (that’s at #135). Clearly there was a major issue with the ratings for some reason, and my link shows that none of them have been reported.


        • Joe

          You took the time to find Last Week Tonight’s correct ratings. The Undoing, also on HBO, the very same night when you knew they were having issues, you ignored. You ignored it’s RED FLAGS – .08 – .07 – .03
          .675 – .800 – 274

          These are not normal 3rd episode declines. This is what I mean when I say this series needs more respect. What good are ratings when they are FALSE?
          Your professional credibility is on the line, as well as Show Buzz Daily.
          Please correct this issue by finding the 9pm episode ratings for The Undoing, even if it is listed as a rerun like Last Week Tonight.
          Thank you.


        • Joe

          Thank you, sir.


  6. Jonathan

    Is the total viewers for Bakugan correct? Only 75,000? I know the show’s been low, but this is the first time under <100k. Last episode did 160k.
