    Wow, The Weather Channel slaughtered nearly everything! Does 90-Day Fiance usually do that well!? Just proof that popularity =/= quality!


  2. Bruce

    I know! Fox News is very popular 99% of the time.

    Rating for Serie A Soccer Lazio vs Roma Espn2 at 11:55am. Thanks


    • Mitch Salem

      Sorry, we don’t provide numbers here for sporting events that are too low rated both both the weekly Skedball post or the night’s Top 150. There are just too many.

    Do you have Nicktoons ratings for Rainbow Rangers airing at 9:30AM please? Thanks
