    Given the nightmarish storm affecting Florida, I can see why the Weather Channel did so well. Good night also for The Guest Book.


  2. Amaury

    Not related to this, but Raven’s Home airs by itself tonight. Hope it does well! Stuck in the Middle and Bizaardvark return next week.


    • Amaury

      On another note, Ice Road Truckers had an unfortunate drop from last week. I don’t know if it’s the time or what, but in general, it takes noticeable dips from Mountain Men. (Note: Ice Road Truckers is the only show of interest to me on History Channel.)


    • Destiny

      Raven will be fine, shows with an audience generally do fine regardless.
