SELECT MONDAY CABLE RATINGS FROM MARCH 28 - MAY 9, 2016

Select Ratings from Original Thursday Cable telecasts from March 28 - May 9, 2016:

The month long hiatus has concluded! Just an FYI, I will cover the ratings for all shows up until June 30, 2016. After that, I will be periodically posting some low rated ratings at the end of the week, and I'll post Twitter ratings. Again, daily coverage will end with the June 30th post. Thank you for following these posts for the last year and enjoy the next couple mass postings.

Here's a recap of the ratings of Monday shows in April. BETTER CALL SAUL concluded its second season with 2.26 million viewers which was down from 2.53M from the season 1 finale. It was; however, better than the 1.5 million viewers BREAKING BAD pulled in its second season finale back in 2009. TURN began its third season with a series-low 471,000 viewers, and managed to rise to 580,000 2-episodes later, but it was still lower than any episode in seasons 1 and 2. A&E's BATES MOTEL stayed steady over the course of its fourth season, never falling below 1.3 million viewers, but did hit a series-low 1.33M for the April 18th installment. On Syfy, THE MAGICIANS finished its inaugural season with 676,000 viewers, down from the 1.113 million who saw the series premiere in January, and its third lowest rated episode of the season.  HUNTERS began with a drastically low 537,000 viewers, stayed below that  number throughout its run so far. Also on Syfy, 12 MONKEYS returned from a year-long hiatus, but forgot to bring its viewers with it; dropping to a series-low 476,000 for its season premiere, and has fell even lower for the following episodes. Logo's RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE concluded its eighth season with 358,000 viewers, its highest since March, and GAY FOR PLAY began with 183,000 and 137,000 for its two premiere episodes. THE DETOUR, on TBS, began with solid 1.17M and 1.04M episodes and has stayed above 750K for its entire run so far. Also on TBS, FULL FRONTAL WITH SAMANTHA BEE has averaged over 600,000 viewers for the past 4 episodes, on par with its season average. Finally, HBO's AFTER THE THRONES began with 165,000 viewers, a minuscule number in itself, but made even worse when compared to the 8 million viewers that GoT had the night prior.

Top 35 Shows on Twitter: Week Ending May 16, 2016

Today was my last day of High School, so to celebrate, I'm going to provide some Twitter ratings.

THE VOICE led the week in both authors (107,000) and total tweets (582,000), and EMPIRE's second-place finish really wasn't even close with 77,000 authors and 298,000 tweets. GAME OF THRONES was third in total tweets (200,000), but managed to pull ahead of EMPIRE with authors (84,000). EMPIRE had a very high 3.9 tweets per person though, compared to THRONES's 2.4. The season finale of WGN America's UNDERGROUND raked in 51,000 tweets and 8,000 authors, while Starz's old-skewing OUTLANDER could only manage 19,000 tweets & 3,000 authors.
