    Encouraging start for C&D, but not so encouraging drop from the first to second episodes. Viewers tuned out after watching the premiere. I think this one will fall heavily by the finale.


  2. ...

    Not great for Cloak & Dagger. All that promo and the Marvel name gets you a premiere on par with Siren?

    They’re very much in the same situation Syfy is, where even seemingly sure things aren’t so sure. Syfy has a Superman show in the 0.1s, Freeform has a Marvel show that’ll be below an unrounded 0.20 in a heartbeat.


    • Russell

      I agree, and it’s clear that the Marvel brand is weaker on TV than it is in movies. DC seems to have the lead on their superhero shows.


      • Destiny

        I don’t think the Marvel brand is weaker, rather Marvel doesn’t have the luxury of a network like the CW to air its shows on. They do very well on Netflix with their Daredevil/Jessica Jones/Luke Cage/Punisher etc lineup. They seem to be aiming these shows at an older audience than the CW shows too.

        I think had Disney/Marvel been co owners of a network like the CW they could produce quite a few long running shows on Broadcast.


    • FlopWatch

      Freeform and Syfy are very similar to each other, both are low rated networks that have undergone failed rebrandings, etc.


  3. Christian

    I’ve never read a comic book a day in my life so this show is going to have to explain these characters’ powers to viewers like me! It was all very confusing and I could see why people dropped out.


  4. Amaury

    Another good day for The Loud House.


  5. JC

    Was there a rating for Professional Fighters League on NBC Sports Network Thursday night?


  6. Jacob

    Nashville airing on TVLand?


  7. Same question as JC. Professional Fighter’s League on NBC Sports? I think it aired at 10 pm eastern.


  8. KevinY

    American Woman was good not great. I’m just thrilled to have Alicia Silverstone back finally! And Mena Suvari too!
