    And back down Double Dare goes. Stuck in the Middle also bad.

    Question: I’ve seen ABC’s Match Game a few times. It’s pretty cool. Are those good numbers for a broadcast game show?


    • Destiny

      Some of those Nick & Disney shows are like a rollercoaster, except in this case no one wants the drop lol.

      The numbers for Match Game aren’t great, but expectations are a lot less during the Summer so it should be OK.


      • Amaury

        If the low-end were more around 1.2M, with an overall range of, say, 1.2–1.7M, then it wouldn’t be so bad.

        Like last year with Nickelodeon. For most of the year, Nickelodeon was killing it in the ratings, pulverizing Disney Channel, before it too started going down. However, we’re seeing a lot of below 1M ratings.

        I mean, poor Star Falls has never had and will likely never see 1M. Its highest rating is 0.73M for its premiere on March 31, with its lowest rating being a rather terrible 0.43M on June 30. The only way I can see it receiving 1M or higher is if it’s renewed and Nielsen’s sample/algorithm this summer has Nickelodeon (and Disney Channel) bias.

        One thing is for sure: When all series on a network are receiving a lot of low ratings, you know it’s not that the series are bad. It’s either the network or ratings declining globally. So hopefully Nickelodeon takes that into account for any series doing bad right now.


        • Jerry Linnardwin

          Really, no one watches Nickelodeon anymore. We miss shows like Sam and Cat, Every Witch Way, Victorious, and How to Rock! I think ratings are going to stay like this for most Nick shows until they can get something good in the air. They can litterely cancel all the current shows and it won’t make a difference (no one will care). Nick is basically done. Spongebob is making nick. If this end’s, then Nickelodeon is history.

          But over on Disney Channel, the shows that people are watching the most are Raven’s Home and Andi Mack. Disney channel can’t cancel any of these, because it wouldn’t be right. Although, with the way things are looking, Andi Mack MIGHT get canceled after season 3.


  2. Shan

    season finale of Bravo’s SOUTHERN CHARM???? The website says there are two more eps for the reunion show.


    • Mitch Salem

      The reason we sometimes don’t refer to season finales here for unscripted cable shows is that “finale” often doesn’t mean the end of the season, because an additional mini-season of “reunion” episodes follows. But technically, last night’s Southern Charm was its “season finale.”


  3. Destiny

    The long overdue renewal for Sweetbitter has finally happened. Starz almost had me worried with this one with the way they dragged it out. Pose was also renewed, that wasn’t in doubt either.

    Freeform should renew C&D because they have nothing better and because it’s a Marvel property.


    • ChrisM

      C&D is the worst Marvel show I’ve seen. Despite my saying I gave up on it, I’ve still been watching since it’s on during dinner where I am and nothing else is. Last night’s episode was a Ground Hog Day type that really didn’t move the story along at all. The show’s commercial breaks are also ridiculous and only drags it out more. I keep meaning to time it, but it seems like there is no more than 35 minutes of show with the rest all ads. I am surprised it’s holding steady, but I would actually be happy if it drops next week.


    • FlopWatch

      Yeah, Freeform really doesn’t have much considering many of the shows they’ve already cancelled.

      They have Bold Type, Siren, Grownish, and Alone Together (and that’s probably the next to go with all things considered), everything else is ending or already gone.

      Starz took a while with Sweetbitter, I wonder what the holdup was compare to Vida, which was announced a lot sooner.


  4. Paula

    Cloak and Dagger is a wonderful show and the last episode (Lotus Eaters) was exceptional! Outstanding performances by the two talented/charismatic young stars who portray Tandy and Tyrone. The show has consistent good writing, directing and overall production execution. Both Freeform and Marvel should be especially proud of Cloak and Dagger. Hoping for a renewal announcement soon.
