HBO TV Show Ratings (updated 12/23/14)

19 hours ago | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

While HBO execs aren't tied to the ratings like regular commercial channels, they have to air programs that will keep viewers subscribed. Which of their shows will be cancelled or renewed? We'll have to wait and see.

Scripted HBO shows listed: Boardwalk Empire, The Comeback, Eastbound & Down, Game of Thrones, Getting On, Girls, Hello Ladies, Jonah from Tonga, The Leftovers, Looking, The Newsroom, Silicon Valley, True Blood, True Detective, and Veep.

Last update: Most recent ratings for The Comeback added.

There's lots of data that HBO execs look at when deciding whether to renew or cancel a TV series. The ratings for initial airings don't play as large a role as they do on commercial stations but they are still an indication of how popular a show is. Here's an updated listing of HBO's recent/current primetime scripted shows. »

Rob Lowe Tackles an Issue That Will Touch Your Heart

19 December 2014 12:41 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

There comes a time in every child’s life when they have to sit down with mom and dad to have the talk. It can be awkward. It can be uncomfortable. But it’s necessary to talk about: Long term care.

What talk did you think we meant?

News: Rob Lowe opens up about his time in rehab to Oprah

YouTube

We wouldn’t fault you if that wasn’t the first thing that came to mind. It’s not a “hot” issue that many stars are tackling or that many people think about, unless it’s already affecting their life, or they’re big fan of HBO’s Getting On.

Dubbed “the adult birds and the bees,” long term care is an issue Rob Lowe is trying to get people to talk about. And he and Maria Shriver start it by sitting down for a touching discussion for Genworth in which they both open up about »

Why'd SNL Snub Sherlock? Was Once a Bit Sketchy? Did White Collar Call for a Pretty Cameo? And More TV Qs

19 December 2014 10:35 AM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Once Upon a Time, Hart of Dixie, NCIS and White Collar!

1 | Should we read anything into the fact that Saturday Night Live host Martin Freeman omitted Sherlock from his list of credits during the monologue? Which of Taran Killam’s impressions was more impressive: Alan Rickman or Gollum? And has the show offered up a less funny sketch this season than the inscrutable “Pine River Lodge Tree Lighting” (with Freeman and Kenan Thompson »

HBO’s The Comeback Is a Ratings Flop

1 December 2014 1:15 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Apparently audiences don’t cherish HBO’s The Comeback as much as reviewers. Despite critical kvelling on its behalf, HBO’s revival of the Lisa Kudrow comedy has turned out to be a ratings dud. After debuting to a disappointing 368,000 viewers on November 9 — and that’s counting same-day viewing as well as three days’ worth of DVR replays as tallied by Nielsen — The Comeback averaged just 230,000 viewers for its November 16 episode and 260,000 viewers on November 23. To put that number in perspective, for the past two weeks, The Comeback has ranked as the least-watched original scripted series on all of cable, drawing fewer eyeballs than Starz’s Saturday import The Missing (279,000 viewers on Nov. 23) or BBC America’s Atlantis (431,000). Even HBO’s own ratings-challenged comedy Getting On has pulled a larger crowd, with the November 23 episode bringing in 400,000 viewers and building on its Comeback lead-in. »

TV Review: ‘The Comeback’

6 November 2014 7:30 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Prescient in several key respects, “The Comeback” felt a tad inside baseball when it made its debut in 2005, chronicling the misadventures of a desperately needy sitcom star, seeking rebirth through a reality show and what turned out to be secondary part in a new comedy. Frequently aggravating, the series nevertheless ended on a perfectly attuned note, cleverly charting a path toward media career reclamation that came through abject humiliation. HBO has rather boldly revived the concept, but the new episodes don’t really advance the ball — reflecting a project so meta and self-referential as to risk swallowing its own tail.

Once again, Lisa Kudrow (who shares exec producing credit with “Sex and the City’s” Michael Patrick King and Dan Bucatinsky) plays the pinched-voice Valerie Cherish, whose perpetual smile scarcely masks her maddening mix of insecurity and entitlement, and only accentuates her total lack of self-awareness. The extended premiere does »

The actor, model and comedian on her gogglebox whoas and woes

A show I absolutely love is [the Us remake of] Getting On. Its about the people who work in the geriatric unit of a hospital and is the funniest show Ive seen in I dont know how long. Theres one scene where they realise theyve left these two 90-something patients in the waiting room together and when they go back they find the old lady giving the old guy fellatio and theyve got to stop them before the head doctor sees. Words cant describe how funny this show is.
