    AEW Sucks. Glad to see their number continue to tank


    • Christopher Marriott

      NXT needed a PPV to compete with a normal Dynamite show? No wonder NXT was a failure. Main roster hotshot booking is all their good at. AEW owns Wednesday nights.


  2. Augus

    Do you have ‘Back (IFC at 12:30AM)’ ratings, please? Thanks!


  3. 69 Road Runner

    Looks like straight eights (0.8 after rounding) for NBC last night.


  4. LC

    Queen of the South tanked but at least it’s doing a lot better than Mr. Robot was doing in its last season


  5. John

    Do you have “Ultimate Cowboy Showdown” (INSP 9pm) ratings? Please post if you do.


  6. Curious

    Ratings for Exterminate All the Brutes on HBO?


  7. Charlie

    Wow, MTV THE CHALLENGE: DOUBLE AGENTS is #1 TV Ratings been increasing.
