  1. Visitors requesting ratings are only allowed a MAXIMUM of TWO shows per query. You cannot make additional requests until the prior ones you had made are addressed.

    With the exception of broadcast network half-hours, time-block requests will not be answered. Requests also won’t be fulfilled for a network’s show rankings nor telecasts of marathons longer than two-hour periods.

    Please note Programming Insider will not answer any request for a show’s ratings prior to Nov. 16, 2015. If you are requesting prior dates’ numbers from Nov. 16 or later, you MUST post your query as a comment at that respective date’s ratings page via http://programminginsider.com/category/ratings/

  2. Hi SonoftheBronx, do you have ‘Saturday Morning Fever’ (Fuse), and ‘Blood Feuds’ (AHC)? Thank you!

    • Blood Feuds (AHC, 2/10 8:00-9:00 p.m.) 178,000 viewers; 0.02 adults 18-49 rating

      Saturday Morning Fever (Fuse, 2/10 11:00-11:30 p.m.) 41,000 viewers; 0.02 adults 18-49 rating

  3. I’m trying to limit my L+7 requests, because last week was just too much. So I only have 6 from this week if that’s okay. For today (Wednesday 2/10), I’m looking for ‘Baby Daddy’, ‘Young & Hungry’ (Freeform), and ‘Man Seeking Woman’ (FXX)? You can do the first 2 first, and I’ll re-request the third one, I just don’t want to forget.

    Also, I’ve sent the email to Verizon, and I should get a reply by the end of the week. For some reason, they don’t have ProgrammingInsider.com on their whitelist.
