    Do you have ‘The Dating List (UPtv at 7pm)’ original movie ratings, please? Thanks!


  2. Ryan

    Do you have numbers for ‘Air Warriors’ (8pm), ‘How Did They Build That?’ (9pm) & ‘Inside the Food Factory’ (10pm) – all Smithsonian? Or as many as you’re willing to provide. Thanks!


  3. Destiny

    Fair to say The Equalizer is getting renewed. Should it stay in the same slot it’ll benefit from the fall NFL inflation which will push over a 1 in the 18-49 demo.


  4. Charles

    Do you have the numbers for NBC Sports Network’s Atlantic 10 games this weekend?


    • ChrisM

      Generally speaking, due to many sports programs on the various networks, this site does not usually answer such requests, if not already provided in the charts. Mitch can correct me, if wrong.


  5. Timmy

    Do you have the ratings for disrupt and dismantle on BET at 9:00 p.m.?
