    Can we get Snap Decision on GSN at 9:30 PM, please? It was also a new episode. Thank you!


  2. rtz6677

    Numbers for ”Still the King” on CMT, please.


    • Mitch Salem

      Original episodes appear to have been moved to the 1AM hour, so as you’d expect hardly anyone is watching: 0.03/57K & 0.02/42K.


      • Destiny

        No one watched it before the move Mitch. Cable burnoffs are fascinating aren’t they? Rather than being dumped to a Saturday(Like Broadcast nets do), they just get a totally dead hour so its out of the way.


  3. Destiny

    USA Network should renew Shooter, but I wonder how this season will turn out given that they concluded the season early when the lead was injured. So many different parties involved with production had to give the OK for them to wrap at episode 8.
