  1. Kenneth

    Rating for Hunter Street – Nickelodeon 7pm?


  2. Destiny

    The Fosters is such an underrated gem for Freeform. They have so many shows doing far worse, and this one just happens to be ending this year.


    • Destiny

      Such a strong finish for Game of Games too. Ellen will be a regular fixture on NBC for years to come with this show.


    • FlopWatch

      Freeform is going to continue to have a network with mostly 0.1s, only worse since they’re ending most of their higher rated veterans so they can’t hide behind that anymore.


    • ChrisM

      They are rebooting it though with Maia Mitchell and Cierra Ramirez continuing on with their own stories. I am guessing the rest of the cast will now make guest appearances – except, maybe, Teri Polo, who may not be happy about this change. I honestly do not see why they just don’t continue on as it is. Makes no sense unless its a cost thing for an ensemble cast.


      • FlopWatch

        Freeform has been phasing out veteran shows for a while now, they just want newer shows regardless of how it performs which hasn’t exactly worked out for them.


        • ChrisM

          Yeah, but it’s not really new as it is possibly condensed. They have eight or nine regulars, then the six or so boy and girl friends (at least), then the few recurring roles for whatever story arcs, etc. It seems they want to be a “less is more” show and cut out the excess. The show juggles a lot of things at once. Also, I am guessing again, there is the desire for a younger skewing show as well. The two girls probably cost as much as Teri Polo alone.


          • FlopWatch

            Yeah, they’re either replacing them with spinoffs like with PLL and Fosters or even taking on Grownish from ABC or they’re just straight up cancelling the veterans like they just did with Young and Hungry.


  3. Amaury

    Hunter Street at 7:00 PM on Nickelodeon? I can confirm it was a new episode. I can’t imagine it got lower than 0.05 or even around there at all. Probably a Nickelodeon mistake.


    • Mitch Salem

      The network does list it as a rerun, and our rule here is to follow their guidance. As an exception here, we’ll provide the numbers: 0.22/1.1M


      • Amaury

        Thanks! Yeah, that’s weird. Hunter Street is all new this month, and Nickelodeon doesn’t even rerun their episodes.


  4. Christian

    Bethenny’s show is a flop. Seems viewers aren’t as enthralled with her as Andy Cohen is!


  5. D Alexander

    How did the premiere of Beat the Clock (Universal Kids, 7:30p) fare? Thanks in advance!
