  1. Bob

    do you have anything on Impact Wrestling? this week was a significant episode, should have made the top 150


  2. Destiny

    Series low audience numbers for Arrow, and it narrowly avoided adjusting down. Not a good night for that show. TBBT looks like the only adjustment of the night.


    • Destiny

      Nothing really stands out on cable either. Ghost Wars though, so close to that fabled 0.0 for Syfy. I hope one day we’ll see a show make history for the network and get that zero.


      • FlopWatch

        Syfy is getting closer and closer to it, their newer shows have been bombing even harder than ever.


        • Destiny

          Krypton is Syfys last hope LOL. They still have Happy! to air next month which I think will flop too. Then a short wait until The Magicians Season 3 & The Expanse Season 3 air.

          These flops should be like music to the ears of Z Nation fans. It makes the case for a Season 5 all the more stronger.


          • FlopWatch

            Pretty much, I think another problem is that their newer shows are much more niche especially compared to their other shows, so shows like Blood Drive never gained any traction.

            Z Nation should get another season with all things considered.


          • Destiny

            Syfy should stop picking up cheaply made shows filled with mostly niche cast members that the average viewer has probably never heard of. There’s a reason why a good 80 percent of the networks lineup has no real buzz surrounding it.


          • FlopWatch

            Agreed, shows like Ghost Wars and Superstition were practically nonexistent.


          • Destiny

            Networks like AMC & USA(Probably FX too but I don’t watch much on this one) are light years ahead of Syfy in the casting/production values department. TNT too to a degree(Sorry I can’t list every network that’d be ridiculous lol).

            I know I’m randomly naming shows here, but Preacher is so far ahead of a typical Syfy show it’s ridiculous. The talented cast, the good production values, writing etc. Nothing on Syfy comes close. I’m sure you and other people here could name examples easily enough too.

            Syfy needs to invest in some quality shows, with the talent attached to generate hype & buzz. They have virtually nothing in that department.


          • FlopWatch

            Agreed, they need to work on their programming because they’re not getting anything good, their newer shows are getting closer and closer to the 0.0.


      • JamesG

        I have to keep reminding myself that Ghost Wars is not one of those ghost hunter reality shows.


        • Destiny

          You’re a rare one indeed if you’re following the show. I can’t imagine many other people are.


          • JamesG

            I haven’t watched it, that’s just how it strikes me whenever I see the title in the listings. Like a cross between Ghost Hunters and Storage Wars or something. I understand it’s one of those cheap Canadian sci-fi action shows though.


  3. Amaury

    Yay! Ice Road Truckers went back up. Still not the greatest total viewers, but at least it’s one million or more.


  4. D Alexander

    How did Divided (GSN mid) do?

    Thanks!


  5. Jeff Anthony

    How many viewers did the World Cup Qualifier between Northern Ireland vs Croatia do?
    It was on ESPN2 at 2:30 …..


  6. superstorm

    Despite worse timeslot, Ghost Wars beats Van Helsing in totals.
