    Do you have ‘House of Payne’ and ‘Assisted Living’ ratings on BET Her? Thanks!


  2. Destiny

    AEW did very well on their return to their usual Wednesday slot. They were only a few thousand 18-49 viewers away from beating Ingraham Angle lol.


    • Destiny

      I wish Tyler Perry would stop with the one man writer room thing. There are plenty of black writers out there who would add different dimensions to his shows & characters.


  3. Jack

    Do you have the ratings for News Nation?


  4. Joe

    What did NewsNation on WGN America get?


  5. 69 Road Runner

    Night of the BB: Only basketball and Big Brother went above a 1.0 rating. 🙂
