    Good job Dodgeball World Championship, Kabbadi, and the SportsCenter Special! ESPN8 “The Ocho” FTW!!


  2. Maru

    I like how Bug Juice is doing better three hours later at 10:30 PM when a lot of kids would be asleep. Also, SpongeBob dropped. Ugh. It’s still decent, but not the best.


    • ChrisM

      Seriously? After 10 years on the air, Spongebob losing any viewers is like a drop in the ocean. I’m pretty sure it can absorb the hit – ha ha.


  3. Babar

    8.30 episode of Alone Together?


  4. Justin

    Hey mitch, do u have Lucha Underground ratings?


  5. Chris

    Do you have the Lucha rating?


  6. Bruce

    Since Jan 2018, Full Frontal has lost 190,000 viewers. That’s an average of 8,636 viewers per episode. It’s overall ranking has also dropped 4 points.
