    Do you have ‘The Oval’ ratings on BET Her? Thanks!


  2. Destiny

    I don’t watch either show, but I don’t remember there ever being a week where AEW lost to WWE NXT in the 18-49 demo. AEW seems to consistently crush NXT in the only metric which matters lol.


    • JustSomeGuy

      A little late, but the only time that happened was December 18th, when AEW got a 0.25 and NXT got a 0.27


  3. Red

    The Challenge drop was because it was a post-finale reunion episode. Next week is an unseen footage episode.


  4. MM

    Glad the MSNBC ‘TheReidOut’ is doing well. Love Joy!


  5. Still enjoy PTI on ESPN but that is all anymore as I watched Around The Horn for years but no longer as it is just Reali Woke fest !
