    That’s a large drop for Snowfall. I probably jinxed it by praising it too much.


    • Destiny

      Mitch, don’t you think considering the audience that CBS should have placed Salvation after an NCIS(R)? It seems like it would benefit more than being paired with Big Brother.


      • FlopWatch

        They probably wanted to help it, hence the direct lead in to BB and airing in an earlier hour.


        • Destiny

          I don’t think Salvation was ever going to get big numbers after Big Brother. Time and time again on CBS reality just doesn’t do much for scripted. In most cases the reality show and the scripted show airing afterwards have their own audience.

          I think we saw in the majority of cases reality gave no notable bump to scripted during the 2016-17 season. ABC saw hilarious drops, NBC had drops, everyone had large drops.


          • FlopWatch

            Agreed, it just doesn’t work for these shows and scripted shows are struggling more and more


      • Mitch Salem

        I don’t think there’s ever a time when you’d prefer a 0.6 lead-in to a 1.9, no matter what the more targeted demos are.


    • ...

      The trajectory will be interesting to watch, as critics have said that the show doesn’t really kick off until the seventh episode. Will too many viewers bail by then for it to matter?


  2. Antoine

    Do you have New Looney Tunes(Wabbit) on Boomerang at 2:30am?
    This show was labeled as Looney Tunes on TV guides.


  3. ...

    That’s a little low for Odd Mom Out. Hopefully it’s more people not knowing it’s back vs. it being dinged by similar competition (I’m Sorry) and/or noticeably weakening.

    Good for Blood Drive going up a little with ESPYs competition. It’s still got some work to do, but I think it’s still in the thick of the renewal race.


    • Destiny

      I think Blood Drive is suffering(Like Wynonna Earp the previous season) by the lack of shows airing with it. Syfy generally doesn’t get good ratings anymore, and airing a show all by its lonesome without promoting it heavily is just asking for terrible numbers.

      It’s a shame that The Purge is scheduled for 2018. These two shows would make a great pairing and would appeal to similar audiences.


  4. Heff

    Lucha Underground on El Rey at 8 and 9? There’s still over 10 episodes left this season and I will ask each week for this, just to let you know. So maybe it would be slightly easier to add it to the description? Either way, thanks.


  5. baja7475

    Cleverman is a great show. Too bad no neilsen viewers are watching it. It has interesting metaphors for class, racism and inequality. The actors are great as well.


  6. Mil Muertes

    Do you Lucha Underground on the El Rey Network at 20:00 and 21:00? thx :p


  7. Dan

    Do you have Penn Zero: Part Time Hero at 7am on Disney XD?


    • Mitch Salem

      0.04/164K, but note that if this is a daily show, we’re not going to be providing these ratings on a regular basis.


  8. xwiseguyx

    I can’t help notice that for all the hoopla and live tweets etc.. . TV Land has for Younger, the overall viewer ratings are marketed lower as well as their demo than cancelled “failed” series Happily Divorced which averaged .27 in its second season. And Younger is considered their best. Either I’m missing something or they need to fire whoever is in charge of programming at TV Land, who needs to learn that you can’t buy viewers – especially the coveted advertising demo.


    • rtz6677

      Season 2 of ”Happily Divorced” ran 2012/2013. That’s four years ago. You can’t seriously compare these numbers with the ones from 2017. Too much has changed in the TV landscape since then. It’s not even apples to oranges, it’s apples to peas.


      • Mitch Salem

        That’s all true. There are two other points I’d add. One is that although we don’t have the data, Younger may very well get a more desirable, higher-income and better-educated audience than Happily Divorced, which would allow for premium pricing. The other related point is that Younger is a major piece of branding for TV Land, not just to viewers but to the creative community, and it has a value for the network that goes beyond the ratings.


        • CMM

          Does it help them being mainly known as a classic TV network? I find it very odd they would have Andy Griffith all afternoon leading into shows like Younger which may have language and sexual references you won’t find in Mayberry. Watching networks like MeTV, or their affiliate, Heroes and Icons, you can’t help but wonder why TV Land could not have been the same. All TV Land does now is marathon the same few shows each day, or so it seems. Although MeTV recently ruined things with changing the aspect ratio of the old shows.

          Is TV Land trying to abandon classic television? Their new shows and old classics are like day and night and neither fits with the other. What is their endgame, if any? It doesn’t help having failures like Jim Gaffigan, which I liked, and Impastor, which could have been better, but wasn’t awful. Maybe they want to move, or keep the classic stuff on Nick at Nite? This was another odd programming choice – why Nick at Nite when you had TV Land?

          What exactly are they trying to brand themselves as?


  9. D.

    I guess BattleBots reboot on Science wouldn’t be a cable original because the first 6 episodes also aired on Disney XD leading up to Season 2, but would that be true of Season 2? Will we get to see numbers then although it’s technically a cable rerun of a network original? Still new to cable at that point…
