    Ah, yeah! Double Dare back up to over 1M and in decent-ish territory.


    • Destiny

      It should be renewed with those numbers. You know better than I do about when they usually announce said renewals though.


      • Amaury

        Game shows are typically cheap to make, which also increases renewal chances for at least more than just one season. This current season has 40 episodes. As of 8:00 PM tonight, 14 of those will have aired.


        • Destiny

          I see. I guess the show is also cheaper because they don’t have the same sort of prize tiers as the usual non kid orientated gameshows you see elsewhere? They probably rely on giving away prizes they believe their contestants would like and small cash amounts?


          • Amaury

            Yeah, the prizes are more aimed at kids, given the network. You should watch an episode. :) Weeknights at 8:00 PM.


  2. Louis Ramirez

    What is the viewership for Lucha Underground on El Rey Network, please? Thank you.


  3. Mathew

    Not to bad for young and hungry!


  4. Destiny

    I think it would be fair to call Yellowstone a modest hit. It’s the biggest new show of Paramounts rather limited existence, and it has stabilized by its third episode. Some shows follow a continued downward path, which Yellowstone isn’t doing.

    Dr Pimple Popper? And the award for the grossest show name I’ve ever seen goes to this one. Why did so many people watch it? lol.
