Final Bcast 2017 May 14.SUN

 

CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  Sunday scripted cable was led by the return of Adult Swim’s MIKE TYSON MYSTERIES at 0.67.  AMC’s INTO THE BADLANDS rose 0.06 to 0.56.  On HBO, LAST WEEK TONIGHT jumped a tenth to 0.50, SILICON VALLEY grew by 0.07 to 0.47, THE LEFTOVERS gained 0.09 to 0.38, and VEEP was up 0.07 to 0.25.  Things were wretched at Showtime, where the final 2 episodes of GUERRILLA were steady at 0.01/61K and 0.01/43K.  (Between GUERRILLA and the cancellation of AMERICAN CRIME, John Ridley isn’t having a good month.)  On Starz, AMERICAN GODS slid 0.02 to 0.28, and THE WHITE PRINCESS rose 0.06 to 0.27, impressively close to the much more hyped GODS.  Hallmark’s GOOD WITCH lost 0.04 to 0.20.  Lifetime’s MARY KILLS PEOPLE was steady at 0.17.  

Discovery was on top of unscripted, with 2 episodes of NAKED & AFRAID at 0.67/0.63, compared to last week’s 0.75/0.65.  On E!, KEEPING UP WITH THE KARDASHIANS held at 0.63, and it was followed by WHAT HAPPENS AT THE ABBEY at 0.17, 0.09 below last week’s scripted THE ARRANGEMENT in that slot.  ESPN’s SUNDAY NIGHT BASEBALL game was at 0.56, and NBC Sports Net’s NHL PLAYOFFS game was at 0.45.  On Bravo, there must be an explanation for how REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA could have plunged 0.80 to 0.54, but in any case its lead-out was INVITE ONLY CABO at 0.23.  HGTV’s many shows on the chart were led by 0.40s for the 9PM and 9:30PM BEACHFRONT BARGAIN HUNTERS.  On Food Network, IRON CHEF GAUNTLET dropped 0.07 to 0.38, GUY’S GROCERY GAMES ticked down to 0.28, and IRON CHEF EATS was at 0.22/0.19 compared to last week’s 0.20/0.17.  ID’s EVIL STEPMOTHERS arrived at 0.38.  On TLC, RETURN TO AMISH fell 0.03 to 0.32, and the AFTERSHOW  ticked down to 0.22.  AMC’s TALKING WITH CHRIS HARDWICK was up 0.04 to 0.15.

    Do you have the School of Rock Mega Golf Challenge at 11 am on Nicktoons?

    That was a pretty big improvement for “The leftovers”. That was a crazy episode. Average ratings are higher then last season as well.


  3. Hopps778

    I know that they’re not originals but I’d like to know how the day long airing of different movies does on free form on the weekends? Do u have numbers for any of the movies like dirty dancing or mean girls? I’d just like to see this to see how freeform is really doing as movies are a big part of their schedule.


  4. Destiny

    Starz has to be loving that The White Princes has gained in viewers every week since it premiered. I wonder if it will continue for this weeks episode? Although they can’t renew the show as its one and done anyway, they could easily order another series based on Philippa Gregorys novels. Maybe The King’s Curse?
