    1.10M for Paradise Run compared to 1.35M on January 10 last year.


  2. Jon Baime

    How does the Opposition survive? It looses 1/2 its 18-49 audience and more than half its total audience. Larry Wilmore did way better.


    • Jon Baime

      Meaning 1/2 it’s lead in audiences… sorry rushed to type.


    • Destiny

      Maybe because it’s a companion to the Daily Show?


      • Ryan

        That didn’t seem to help “The Nightly Show” which, if I remember correctly, was performing better than “Opposition” is. Unless we see some unexpected uptick, I can’t see the show lasting longer than the Trump presidency (however long that is)


  3. Destiny

    Decent start for The Magicians. Happy is also very steady.


  4. Mathew kleinman

    Freedorms comedy’s were extremely annoying last night.


  5. KevinY

    I loved Alone Together! Exactly in my wheelhouse like You’re the Worst, LOVE, and Crazy Ex-GF !!
