    Do you have ‘Heartland (UPtv at 8 and 9PM)’ ratings, please? Thanks!


  2. Destiny

    Sucks that 30 Rock didn’t get a proper airing on NBC. That adjustment down was so harsh and reflects that it only aired in a small percentage of households.


    • Destiny

      Looks like Maddow won the night because she had an interview with Trumps niece?


      • ChrisM

        Yes. She sold nearly a million copies of her book in a single day. I wish she had gone more in depth though – maybe go commercial free to help do so.


    • 69 Road Runner

      My NBC affiliate ran something completely different during that time slot; I don’t why the 30 Rock special was preempted in my market,


  3. Gustavo

    Do you have “The Rocketeer” (2:20am on Disney Junior) ratings?
