    Do you have “The Split” (Sundance TV) ratings at 12AM, please? Thanks!

    Siren’s finale could have been a closing/ending. No see you in the future after it was over. It pretty much gave an ending to everybody’s story line, so i guess that’s good.

    One glimmer of hope was Ryn sitting on the rock looking like she saw something/somebody.


    • Destiny

      Siren will most likely be back because Freeform doesn’t have any other dramas pulling better numbers. Even Good Trouble concluded the season with a zero rating.


  3. Somebody

    Do you have ratings for the Cake special (“Thirsty”) that aired at 10:30 PM on FX?


  4. Somebody

    Sorry, I meant FXX. Do you have ratings for the Cake special (“Thirsty”) that aired at 10:30 PM on FXX?
