The NFC Championship fills numbers 1 - 3 of the top 500+ shows, but the AFC Championship is not listed. Is that an oversight or personal opinion?

Steve Platt

Feb 7, 2024 18:45 EST

Folks, Chris Wallace is now on CNN. His show is up 17%

…what happened to the Neilson ratings?They were great readings and showed the times of the shows along with the rankings..Neilson must return so true and accurate ratings can be viewed…


Oct 18, 2023 14:00 EST

Cable is dead, it's all about streaming.
Funny how the first scripted show is Yellowstone, a white cowboy show.
Blacks, feminists, and New York City Media killed cable.


Jan 26, 2024 08:07 EST

wow, racists cannot even make a single coherent sentence. "Streaming killed cable" then "Blacks and women" which contradicts itself and shows you are an idiot loser. Now if you'd said "The Jews who run Streaming" that would be logically consistent! (yeah, like Bob Iger.. .the real power is with people named "disney" but like St. Matt, they put the Jews (also Blacks and women) as figureheads to draw the blame


Jul 27, 2023 13:14 EST

Why are Newsmax shows not listed? Got it right this time.

John Bae

Apr 11, 2024 04:31 EST

Most Americans don’t know what Newsmax is

NMX Trump rally is listed at 200. The others don’t rate high enough to list.

I'm curious about many ratings for video games. I have noticed that my children have been acting strange ever since I got them a xbox.
They have been more actively upset and very aggresive against me and my husband Anthony.


Jan 7, 2023 10:28 EST

Then get them away from the ignorant video games, dumbass.


Mar 24, 2023 20:54 EST

You can give her suggestions on how to combat the problem without being so disrespectful....

Jan 6, 2022 04:07 EST

WOW.. If this chart is telling everyone reading it that the Top 50 shows on cable and satellite television are ALL POLITICAL SHOWS? Give me a break.. out of 340 Million Americans, with 50% at minimum having cable and satellite television, you're trying to convince common sense Americans that the Top 50 shows Americans are watching on paid TV are ALL political shows? ahahahaahahahahaha no wait ahahahahahaahah WOW.. I've heard of taking Americans for absolute morons but this is ridiculous ahaahahahaaha


Jan 31, 2023 15:48 EST

Top ten shows are football, then a mix of everything… what are you looking at???


Aug 18, 2022 19:32 EST

The regular broadcast scripted shows are all in reruns, and the political shows are all in election mode. The numbers will be vastly different in a month when the fall season starts.


Nov 25, 2021 11:26 EST

Why does this list only show the top news programs? A full list would have Yellowstone as the #1 show and all the Hallmark Xmas movies and several cooking shows?

Nobody watches CNN for actual News anymore, just a Democrat propaganda machine!


Mar 5, 2021 14:13 EST

Interesting. I don't watch CNN because they give equal time to actual lies and disinformation. I prefer hearing from an actual republican like Nicole Wallace. She's a conservative but she's also anti-fascist.


Aug 25, 2020 20:06 EST

CNN News for Jews, Homosexuals and assorted nut cases!


Jan 26, 2021 13:25 EST

I was so happy to see that Morning Joe with that hate filled Mika Brezinski and her possible murdering husband is almost dead last in the ratings. Good job Mika & Joe great hating.


Mar 7, 2024 08:14 EST

Morning Joe has about the same rating as Fox and Friends. Probably happy about that too.

How I can access daily Nielsen data on a particular TV show? Is there any contact email for this website? I cannot find anything here.
