    Today I started from the bottom of the table knowing that The Bold Type had premiered last night. Freeform didn’t disappoint.


    • FlopWatch

      That’s really sad knowing how you can find most Freeform shows, starting from the bottom.


      • Destiny

        Freeform are trailblazers in mediocrity. They blaze a path to new lows with Syfy following behind. They should merge!


        • FlopWatch

          It’s a race to the bottom between Freeform and Syfy tbh.


          • Destiny

            Yep, they even gave the show a two season renewal. What were they thinking? Cut your losses Freeform before you get an early zero rating.


          • FlopWatch

            That’s inevitable at the rate of decline, it’s only a matter of time with all these 0.1s and sinking shows.

            Freeform is getting rejected and it’s not getting any better.


    • Destiny

      That’s amazing for Expedition Unknown, Josh Gates is such a good host he deserves those numbers.


  2. Amaury

    The Adventures of Kid Danger did decent again. Hardly lost anything from yesterday’s total viewers.


  3. Oh, God…! Animal Kingdom… A HIT for Turner.


  4. Shan

    Genius on Nat Geo numbers, please


  5. Shan

    Million Dollar Listing NY on bravo numbers, please


  6. TC

    Genius: Picasso?


    • Mitch Salem

      Now in the text.


      • Destiny

        There’s only one episode left of the season Mitch so you may have people asking for its numbers if its not in the top 150 next week. God knows what they’ll do with this show next season as they gave it an early renewal before it premiered.


        • FlopWatch

          Next season is supposed to be Mary Shelley, so good luck to them next season given how the show is already performing right now.


          • Destiny

            Yeah, when you hit a zero rating you really have nowhere else to go beyond that. I can only assume Neo Geo have such a terrible deal in place that cancelation would cost more than it would do in license fee payments for the show.

            Maybe they’ll do what Syfy did with 12 Monkeys last season and burn off several episodes at once over a week?


          • Mitch Salem

            Remember that the Einstein Genius series got quite a few Emmy nominations, despite low ratings. That has its own value for a network like Nat Geo–although it seems unlikely that Picasso will do as well with awards.


          • Destiny

            What do you think Nat Geo will do with the show Mitch? They can’t be happy with these numbers and they likely expected something similar to the first season.


          • Mitch Salem

            It depends on this year’s Emmy nominations. If Banderas and the show can get nominations, Nat Geo may well press on with it despite the tiny ratings. Banderas has certainly been campaigning for a slot in recent weeks.


  7. Gregg Hummer

    Rachel Who?


  8. GD

    any idea on the live e3 coverage on XD at 12 noon-1pm?


  9. Suma Kancherla

    Any ratings for Cleo & Cuquin aired on NickJr for 2:30PM and 2:40PM please?


  10. KevinY

    I just started Season One of The Bold Type and it’s without a doubt the best Drama on Freeform by far! Could totally compete for Emmys if it was on Netflix or some other network that wasn’t invisible to people over 35. The linear ratings for Freeform are irrelevant. The show is well received and got a well deserved two-season renewal.
