Broadcast Official Nationals Program Ratings Chart  

 

CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  MTV’s THE CHALLENGE dropped 0.04 to 0.54.  ESPN’s NBA doubleheader was at 0.33/0.23.  TNT’s ALL ELITE WRESTLING gained 0.03 to 0.32.  Cable news was led by MSNBC’s RACHEL MADDOW SHOW at 0.31/0.51/3.9M, with CNN’s CUOMO PRIME TIME at 0.31/0.47/2.4M, and Fox News’s TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT at 0.29/0.47/3.5M.  On Lifetime, MARRIED AT FIRST SIGHT ticked up to 0.29, and MARRYING MILLIONS was down 0.03 to 0.10.  On BET, SISTAS lost 0.05 to 0.24 (note, we do not have BET Her simulcast numbers at this time).  On TLC, MY 600-LB LIFE gained 0.04 to 0.23.  Syfy’s RESIDENT ALIEN rose 0.05 to 0.22, although that’s slightly misleading because last week it also had 0.12 from a USA simulcast.  On HGTV, HOUSE IN A HURRY climbed 0.05 to 0.22, HOUSE HUNTERS was at 0.20, and HOUSE HUNTERS INTL was up 0.02 to 0.19.  TBS’s FULL FRONTAL ticked up to 0.21.  Bravo’s REAL HOUSEWIVES OF SALT LAKE CITY was up 0.03 to 0.19.  On A&E, COURT CAM was at 0.18/0.12 compared to last week’s 0.18/0.12, and NATURE GONE WILD was at 0.13/0.11 compared to last week’s 0.09/0.07.  USA’s WWE NXT fell 0.06 to 0.15.  Food Network’s KITCHEN CRASH ticked down to 0.14.  We don’t currently have ratings for HBO’s CB STRIKE.

    I can’t remember the last Syfy show to grow from its premiere. They usually either start high and come crashing down or start so ridiculously low they barely register on the charts. Resident Alien deserves a renewal.


  2. Matt

    Funny how ‘The Challenge’ is the best ratings success for MTV and yet they don’t air reruns for the show.
