    Good night for Westworld, Into the Badlands and FTWD and a few others. I wonder if Vida will increase its audience to more than five Nielsen viewers this week.


    • Amaury

      I remember when Nickelodeon and Disney Channel used to get numbers like Westworld—or higher—total viewers-wise. Good times.

      Also, Sunday wins again. It was posted first. 😛


    • Fred

      But Westworld dropped again didn’t it ? :(


  2. Kevin

    Do you have numbers for Aerial Cities? On at 8pm on the Smithsonian Channel? Thanks!


  3. Nice bump for Trust. 😀 It increased 0.08 to a 0.16 in the A18-49 rating and went up 185.000 live viewers to 587.000

    I hope FX factors this results plus the L+7 and On-Demand figures to give this drama a second season; because this production truly deserves it with that Top-notch writing, fantastic production and terrific acting all around.


  4. lily

    wow, with STARZ shows not even showing up in the top 150, the move to delay Outlander, season 5 until 2020 isn’t such a great idea. Season 4 will air in Nov 2018, then what?


    • Destiny

      Starz doesn’t look at the 18-49 demo so it’s fine. Well it’s not fine for Vida & Sweetbitter, but it’s fine for those shows which aren’t flops lol.


  5. TJ Neyland

    I don’t know if Genius Junior will be renewed, most likely won’t, but we’ll see.
