    Clique on Pop numbers ,please


    • Mitch Salem

      That was at a zero/11K rating, so we won’t be covering it here in the future.


      • Shan

        Seems like a new low for Pop. Is that 11k for both episodes or just the first one? I wonder how cheap Pop got the show since it’s a cheap BBC online one?


  2. John

    Busy Tonight??


  3. BILL G

    I am glad to see the NBC line up doing well, three hours of quality TV!!


  4. mhb

    Sad to see such low number for Lucha Undergrounds season finale. But it was a top trend on Twitter last night, so people must be watching someway.


  5. Amaury

    Thank you, Mitch! I appreciate that!

    Based on that, it’s a fair guess that the previous string of steady 0.8s for A Million Little Things was probably somewhere in the 0.75–0.79 ballpark if we were to expand to two decimal places there. In that context, not such a big loss.


  6. Ryan

    Any numbers for ‘Wild Andes’ (Smithsonian, 8pm)?


  7. Dan

    Any numbers for the new 9pm Deal or No Deal special on CNBC?


  8. Thomas May

    Why doesn’T Showbuzzdaily.com show the Daily ratings for Fox Business Network,
    Such as Lou Dobbs, Trish Regan Primetime, Varney & Co., I want to see the daily
    ratings for all Fox Business Networks Talk show hosts just like your showing the
    ratings for Fox News.


    • Mitch Salem

      If any of that network’s shows rate within the top 150 cable originals of the night, they’ll be on our chart. On Wednesday, their highest-rated show was at 0.03 in 18-49s.


  9. LeafyWasNotHere

    Numbers for Rainbow Rangers on Nick Jr. on 3PM?
