    At least I Am Frankie is staying steady. Maybe 0.9 million is the new 1.3 million.


    • Destiny

      For what’s worth plenty of scripted shows this year have suffered some really harsh drops between seasons. So maybe the show will be three seasons and done?


      • Amaury

        Hopefully. Hunter Street’s second season averaged 0.96 million viewers, and if it was renewed for season three, I Am Frankie should be as well.


        • Destiny

          The numbers should improve when the fall season starts and the weather becomes less pleasant. I wouldn’t worry too much as we’re in the early stages of the season and there’s plenty of time for the show to turn things around.


  2. Scott

    Lock it in 430 pm FS1 and GMA Day 1pm ABC? Thanks


  3. Ryan

    No requests from today; however, if possible, could you take a look at my requests on the Sunday page? Thanks!


  4. Destiny

    Mayans & The Purge did well despite the drops.


  5. Jordan

    I’m allowed to have an opinion without being called an idiot. Someone thinks they took the high road when they call someone an idiot is pretty pathetic. I’m pretty sure when someone writes one message to someone, that doesn’t define them as a stalker. Ur a bully. I will end it at that.


  6. jsbq

    It would be nice if there was a legend to understand these tables….. also please sort in some way


  7. jsbl

    Actually the table is sorted my bad
