…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 13:00 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.


Jul 27, 2023 12:14 EST

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


Sep 9, 2023 22:15 EST

They used to be, new clue while missing now


Jul 29, 2023 23:28 EST

Because most of Newsmax's viewership is streaming, which is not monitored

Mike Varner

Dec 1, 2023 07:43 EST

Newsmax. It is because none of their shows are in the top 250. See page #2 . First appearance of Newsmax is @ 266 Rob Schmidt Tonight

Dec 12, 2022 16:14 EST

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 09:28 EST

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


Mar 24, 2023 19:54 EST

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

Christopher Thais

Jan 6, 2022 03:07 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 14:48 EST

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


Aug 18, 2022 18:32 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 10:26 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?


Feb 26, 2021 17:06 EST

Why does your Program list have JAN 2 DATE?


Feb 28, 2021 08:10 EST

I do wish that I could see the ratings updated so I know what the current ratings are


Feb 26, 2021 17:27 EST

Because that's when the program ratings were last updated...


Feb 13, 2021 08:20 EST

Where is Chris Wallace on this list and when will Fox fire him? He is definitely poison to their ratings.

Jeff Simmons

May 28, 2021 08:49 EST

Wallace is the product of nepotism AND being surrounded by Beltway Bums most of his life. On top of that, he’s a little man with a big mouth and a big chip.

He’s become nothing more than just another version of “Butt Chuck” Todd.

How does FOX News ever hope to make headway in the ratings on Sundays with a host like Wallace, who’s like all the rest?!?


Jun 10, 2021 13:31 EST

Agreed, Mike Wallace was much better than Chris. It seems like he is trying to be something he is not.


Mar 18, 2021 13:58 EST

Why? Because he doesn't sell right-wing lies and propaganda freely enough? He sure didn't stop Trump in the first presidential debate last year. He just gave Trump ALL the rope. And by god, Trump hanged himself. Trump did not recover in the campaign after that.


May 26, 2021 09:06 EST

It’s a real shame that people like you are just like a group of sheep follow what they hear and they don’t look at the truth the evidence. You’re a pathetic moron

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.


Feb 6, 2021 08:44 EST

We don't have access to the daily ratings at this time. Hopefully, that will change soon. In the meantime, you can try


Jan 26, 2021 12:25 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.


Feb 25, 2022 19:47 EST

Agree with you Mary, They both are horrible human.


Mar 3, 2022 11:11 EST

I agree that you are a user like Mary and a self hater. Go hang youry

Sep 9, 2020 10:16 EST

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


Mar 5, 2021 13:13 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 19:06 EST

CNN News for Jews, Homosexuals and assorted nut cases!
