    Hi Mitch — any chance to see the numbers for Log Cabin Fever on Great American Country at 10 p.m.? Thanks.


  2. Gregg Hummer

    Why can’t these shows be ranked in TOTAL viewers?


    • r0ckmypants

      Because that’s not the measurement that matters.


    • Casey Abell

      In fact, it’s very easy to copy the list into Excel and re-sort on total viewers. The resulting top 25 looks like FNC, MSNBC and not much else…

      Pretty remarkable. Twenty of the top twenty-five in total viewers are FNC and MSNBC.


      • Casey Abell

        Oh, one other thing. Most weeks a site called TV Newser posts a ranking of all rated cable networks in total viewers. Given these numbers, it’s no surprise that for the latest week FNC was easily number one in total viewers for total day and MSNBC number three. Hallmark, which is enjoying its usual seasonal boost, snuck in just above MSNBC in total viewers for total day.

        Now the demos are a different matter.


  3. Mary

    Do you have Beyblade Burst at 8.30am on Disney XD?


  4. Jim Croft

    I’m finally understanding the color coding on graph. The green yellow orange red make it hard to interpret. My brain is compensating . I guess logic isn’t important in the arts.
