On cable, it is not always about the A18-49 ratings. THE GOOD WITCH is one of those series that can attract a large audience, but few are within the coveted A18-49 demographic.
Not surprised HELIX was cancelled after two seasons. The series has struggled in the ratings since late in the first season. Season two numbers started low and lost another 55% of it viewership by the end of its run.
Another night, another 6.9 million viewers for the NBA Conference finals. The ESPN game also collected 2.7 rating in the A18-49 demographic, which is a tenth below Wednesday night's game and two tenths below the last game on ESPN.
After six seasons, JUSTIFIED comes to an end, on FX. The hit cable series produced 78 episodes and collected numerous Emmy nominations, multiple Emmy Award wins, Peabody Awards, and Critic's Choice TV Awards nominations. It was a great telling of a modern cowboy story.

Repeats rule the first day of the 2015 summer season, as seven of the 13 hours of programming, between the five networks, were encore episodes. CBS was the top network in each category, with FOX tying it in the A18-49 demographic.
In a year that had been brutal to comedies, SIRENS was one of the better performing sitcoms, on cable. But not even that was not enough to keep the program afloat, after this seasons season.
If you are not a fan of VIKINGS, you should be. The second to last episode of the season, the siege of Paris, was one of the best, action packed episodes I have seen, from a TV series, in a very long time, if ever.
