    Anything about the Major League Lacrosse championship on ESPN?


  2. Destiny

    Good result for Wynonna Earp on a new day. Syfy have had so many shows do much worse in better timeslots.


  3. Ryan

    I won’t request ‘Mighty Trains’ anymore because of the zero it hit last week, but could I have ‘Mystic Britain’ (Smithsonian, 8pm) & ‘Autopsy’ (Reelz, 8pm)? Thanks!


  4. mark

    I was happily wrong on Wynonna Earp. :o)


  5. Angela

    Good result for Wynonna Earp! Especially after being off the air for 2 years.


  6. Nikki

    I’m confused. So they rank not on the number of viewers? I’m like Perry mason has 950000 viewers but out of top 50?


  7. Mary

    So excited about Wynonna Earp’s Awesome Season 4 Premiere and 2nd episode!!! Love, love love this show and the amazing chemistry and talent of this incredible cast♥️ Congratulations to all of you🎉 Great job to Emily to writing the episodes your fans have been waiting for too long🎉 Can’t wait until next week’s show♥️🎉‼️
