    Any Lucha Underground numbers?


  2. sgirltweets

    Where are the ratings for Busy Tonight on E! ?


    • Mitch Salem

      That’s a nightly show. Sorry, but if the ratings are too low to land in the Top 150, we won’t be covering it here.


  3. Jonathan

    Now ABC has an excuse to cancel Alec Baldwin’s show without the admission of immense failure.


  4. Ryan

    The numbers this week are really screwy. We had those wonky CNN numbers on Monday, 2 Smithsonian shows make the top 150 this week (Sun & Mon), and now we have Deutschland 86 in the top 150 as well. Something seems off with Nielsen…


  5. Chris

    Pop TV had Young and the Restless (7pm) and IMPACT (10pm) in the cable top 150. I don’t see Gilmore Girls though.. Pathetic what Pop did, costing Impact more than half it’s audience


  6. Amaury

    Not that I watched it, but Freeform has canceled Alone Together.


  7. will

    Where are those data originated from?
