    Do you have Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles at 8 pm on Nicktoons?


  2. Rithvik Lee Pack

    Well I guess that’s it for dynasty


    • Destiny

      It’s not quite in The Bad Place yet. But Janet has it on a train to it as we speak. We’ll see next week.


    • FlopWatch

      It depends on the CW, but yeah, tying Valor is pretty bad with all the circumstances, the CW still has flops for half their network getting 0.2/0.3s.

      Another Berlanti comic book show didn’t change that for the network.


      • Destiny

        The only thing that can cheer CBS Studios up when dealing with the CW is the critical acclaim of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. They have nothing else.


        • FlopWatch

          I guess, CBS seems incapable of properly developing a mainstream show for the network, it’s usually too off brand and niche.

          I can see why the CW has several reboots/revivals/spinoffs in development.


          • Destiny

            The comic book stuff is just too strong at the moment. That’s all people really seem to care about. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a resurgence of the Vampire & Soapy stuff once the comic book bubble bursts.


          • FlopWatch

            Probably or another genre depending on what becomes popular.


  3. Destiny

    Mr. Robot did OK. Keep in mind that USA renewed Colony which rated between a 0.2-0.3. That Mr.Robot audience is also quite young too. I could easily see a final season order from USA in the not so distant future.


    • FlopWatch

      The only real flop on the network tbh is Falling Water.


      • Destiny

        Agreed. I think a streaming deal or something saved that one. The numbers when it returns will be hideous. Speaking of which, look at those Shannara numbers. They kept that one off the air for like 19 months and moved it to Spike. Fans should be mad.


        • FlopWatch

          Agreed, that makes more sense.

          As for Shannara, it was a victim of Viacom and being moved from MTV to Spike, it’s a very messy transition.


          • Destiny

            Yep, I think this is one of those very rare occasions that a show has flopped because of poor handling by the network and everyone involved behind the scenes. I can’t imagine that many people caring about a show like Shannara after being off the air for so long, it was never a “hit” per say.


          • FlopWatch

            Yeah, it was struggling on MTV, but the Spike move and long hiatus only made it worse.


        • JamesG

          Spike’s scripted programming has been a trainwreck. Whether developing shows themselves or appropriating them, it isn’t working.

          Most of what I’ve heard is coming when they rebrand to Paramount in January sounds horrible. An exception is Velvet which is based on a cool comic book series about a female spy. I hope they don’t ruin it.


  4. Alex

    Do you have this week’s Lucha Underground numbers? Thanks.


  5. Mil Muertes

    Do you have Lucha Underground on El Rey? There’s only one episode left after this week until a potential season 4.


  6. Mary

    Do you have Walk the Prank at 7.00am on Disney XD?


  7. KevinY

    Those numbers for RIVERDALE are amazing! I believe it topped out at 0.5 in Season One, so it got a 60% boost over it’s previous high. How did it do it? NETFLIX!! It became a sensation over the Summer with young people discovering it on Netflix. I bet many shows will try to duplicate this model. Grey’s Anatomy can thank Netflix for it’s resurgence a few years ago too. But I don’t think we’ve seen anything like this boost Riverdale got before.

    Season premiere of Mr. ROBOT was amazing! Especially the last 10 minutes! So cinematic!


  8. Odd

    Do you have Heroes Global Championship at midnight?
