CABLE HIGHLIGHTS:  The top of Wednesday cable was filled with sports, as TNT’s NBA PLAYOFFS game led the night at 1.44, and NBC Sports Net’s NHL PLAYOFFS games were at 0.96/0.59.  VH1 aired a LOVE & HIP-HOP special at 0.49, a considerable number but far off the show’s usual Monday pace.

On HGTV, HOUSE HUNTERS gained 0.04 to 0.35, and PROPERTY BROTHERS was steady at 0.30.  On TLC, MY 600-LB LIFE shed 0.03 to 0.33, and SKIN TIGHT was up 0.02 to 0.31.  On Lifetime, LITTLE WOMEN ATLANTA ticked down to 0.31, and LITTLE WOMEN DALLAS similarly lost a tick to 0.29. FX’s FARGO fell 0.06 to 0.30.  Discovery’s THE LAST ALASKANS rose 0.06 to 0.29.  The season finale of E!’s TOTAL DIVAS ticked up to 0.29.  Food Network’s COOKS VS CONS was at 0.24. FXX’s ARCHER grew by 0.02 to 0.23.  On A&E, STORAGE WARS was at 0.21/0.20, the same as last week, and the season finale of BILLY THE EXTERMINATOR was at 0.18/0.17, compared to 0.20/0.19.  The season (and probable network) finale of WGNAmerica’s UNDERGROUND ticked up to 0.17.  The finale of Comedy Central’s COMEDY JAM was down 0.02 to 0.11.  On TV Land, LOPEZ gained 0.02 to 0.10, and NOBODIES ticked down to 0.06. IFC’s BROCKMIRE added a tick for 0.07.  POP remained below chart-level, with HOLLYWOOD DARLINGS steady at 0.04/191K, and RETURN OF THE MAC holding at 0.02/78K.  Sundance’s GOMORRAH remained level, for what it’s worth, at 0.01/56K.

    Do you have Pig Goat Banana Cricket at 9 pm on Nicktoons?


  2. Boop

    Any numbers for Hollywood Darlings at 8 on POP?
    Greatly appreciated thanks


  3. Rithvik Lee Pack

    Greats news got renewed. How?


  4. Amaury

    I didn’t watch it personally, just saw it on Deadline. A cancellation by ABC: http://deadline.com/2017/05/the-real-oneals-canceled-2-seasons-1202090648/


  5. Amaury

    Renewals within the last hour or so include:
    * The Goldbergs for fifth and sixth seasons.
    * Once upon a Time for a seventh season.
    * American Housewife and Designated Survivor for second seasons.
    * Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for a fifth season.
    * Black-ish for a fourth season.

    How do you guys feel about this? The Goldbergs and American Housewife are two series that are interesting to me and I plan on getting into, so that’s good news there.


    • baja7475

      I’m very happy about Designated Survivor and Shield. I don’t watch the others.


      • Shan

        I wouldn’t expected a third season from Designated Survivor as it will be just like Quantico and continue it’s downward trend. And any bets on Quantico being cancelled or given a pity renewal.


        • rtz6677

          ”Designated Survivor” is a ”Netflix Original Series” oitside of the USA and Canada. Netflix is paying nicely for the show. Ratings on ABC are not THAT important for ”DS” — if Netflix continues to pay.


          • Shan

            Your saying ABC is as sad as the CW and renews low rated shows for secondary income? I on’t think they are that sad yet. There’s something more to this pity renewal which will not last past season two. And Netflix sucks with it’s use of DRM restricting viewers to shitty commercial viewing options.


          • FlopWatch

            Probably even worse, at least CW is a smaller network, ABC is supposed to be a bigger network.


    • Destiny

      These were all obvious renewals to me. I really couldn’t see ABC letting OUAT go without trying a new direction.
