* MTV’s “Jersey Shore” has tied with HBO’s “True Blood” in 18-49 for two weeks running, and for two weeks running beat “True Blood” in terms of total viewers (5.504 million vs. 4.996 million last week; 5.820m vs. 5.394m this week). “Blood” matched its all-time high this week; “Jersey” hit a new all-time high. * After NBC football, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” remains America’s top show, hitting its best number in seven weeks. * All three hours of “Big Brother,” CBS’ biggest summer hit, rose to season highs this week; they also took up three spots in the 18-49 demo’s top ten this week in the run-up to Thursday's big double-eviction show. * Sunday’s “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” return didn’t mark an all-time high for the E! show (it previously hit a 2.7), but it came dang close. And pretty dang close to cracking the week’s top 10. * “Kardashians” was edged out of the top 10 by this week’s top scripted show, a repeat of CBS’ “Big Bang Theory.” * Top scripted cable show this week was USA’s “Burn Notice,” which matched its season high with its season finale. * “Wipeout” and “Bachelor Pad” were ABC’s two shows in the twos this week. * A repeat of “Family Guy” was Fox’s top show, followed by “MasterChef.”

    by Shut the Fuck up Donny

    ...if the "talent" ends up becoming singer-heavy--which is likely. There are four singers from this week, and predictions (based upon the horrid results on Wednesday) are that at *least* two more will make it through next week. That's a minimum of 60% singing "talent" going into the finals. That's an preposterous proportion, based upon the diverse pool of talent we had just a few weeks ago, and the fact there's another show already that deals entirely with singing. <p> And yes, I'm still bitter about ArcAttack. However, Antonio and Ascendance also had no reason to be bumped off for Taylor Matthews or Christina & Ali.

    Looking forward to the impending Eric vs. Russell gorefest

    by SpyGuy

    Russell has been such a great Big Bad on TRUE BLOOD this season, definitely a step up from wacked-out Bon Temps townsfolk having Maenad orgies in Sookie's front yard last year. And with Hoyt and Jessica heading in the direction of getting back together, the odds of seeing Deborah Ann Woll all nekkid are getting better and better...

  • Aug. 28, 2010, 12:11 a.m. CST

    More Blood

    by Waspo

    Considering that the show is trying to get better I can see why the audience is growing. There are still subplots I don't like, and I really don't like twenty minutes of Vampire Blood Induced Mayhem, but the three main characters are enough to carry the show for the week, but you can clearly see where it struggles. Plus, I really hate Tara. She is eiher showing up yelling or crying, and I swear I want someone to just shut her up. Anyway, I'm not really happy with any of the three HBO shows on Sunday night. Entourage is jus spinning it's wheels, but I never liked Vinny Chase as a character. Hung is only interesting when Tanya is on screen, and that just mehs everything. Thank god The Venture Brothers is coming back to help Sunday.

    Burn Notice is awesome!!!

    by antonphd

    It's essentially Magnum PI for this generation. And it will be a classic. I only gave it a try because of Bruce but in 5 minutes I was won over. In my opinion it's makes the Bourne and MI movies seem pointless. Still love my 007 though.

    by Kontarsky

    Jersey Shore...what is that? Is that the reality tv crap about a bunch of lowlife rich brats in New Jersey or something? That said, we need True Blood talkbacks AT LEAST for the last 2 fucking episodes. I see MAD MEN ones EVERY.SINGLE.WEEK. So much stuff is happening in the final 2 episodes with True Blood...just give us one. Please, I implore you AICN.

  • Aug. 28, 2010, 3:03 a.m. CST


    by Kontarsky

    Can't wait. Here's hoping Russell doesn't face final death. He's been my favourite character ever on the program. Gorefest I think is going to take multiple other vampires to bring down Russell. If he weren't insane at this point and had just declared war on them, I think every single one of his enemies would be dead. Poor dude. He's the only TRUE vampire on the show, as in making it look good. Every other one is pretty boring, once he's around.

  • Aug. 28, 2010, 4:57 a.m. CST

    Last 2 episodes...

    by AmbroseChaseWillRise

    of True Blood and Burn Notice were very good. Its hard to wade through so much crap on tv these days to find a gem, and luckily we have these. I actually like castle on ABC, but that's the only thing from the networks that I'll watch.

    The Dumbassification of America

    by The McPoyle Clan

    continues.<br><br>Patrick and Rooker made the BN finale a little more tolerable, but I was hoping Jesse would make his exit for good.<br><br>I have to disagree on Rescue Me. It has been far worse, but I wouldn't call this season any more than pleasantly tolerable. Colleen's story line came out of nowhere, and it looks like what happens in the finale is going to be utterly predictable. The only reason I still watch is for the stuff with the guys in the house, like Lou; the Gavin family stuff a.k.a. Leary's Welfare Plan for comedians and drugged out child stars...blah.

  • Aug. 28, 2010, 8:50 a.m. CST

    by swinky

    Considering that there are almost 20 million more basic cable subscribers than HBO subscribers, those viewer differences are non-existent. In that respect, True Blood should be ranked higher.

    by Itchy

    "Jeez, who died and made you Hitler?"

    by jim

    I'm guessing that would be Hitler (at least for the "who died" half of the question).<p> photoboy, I guess you missed Eric auditioning the new dancer, or the AVL spokeswoman's limo companion. I'm also guessing you not see the last season of Californication and Susan Sarandon's well-endowed daughter (not to mention her two friends). As for Dexter, I do seem to remember seeing quite a bit of the cop's reporter girlfriend. Granted, maybe the nudity in all three shows isn't what it was in their first seasons but it's still more than "a bit of side boob".

    by RedJester

    You can pretty much blame 66% of the country for making me "like Hitler." Granted my version of Hitler is Pro-choice, antiwar, pro legalization of marijuana and for sexual equality, class equality, racial equality, age equality, and gender equality. My Hitler is also for religious equality as long as religion is still an integral part of our society, although personally I'd prefer doing away with religion all together. So really, when it comes down to it, my version of Hitler only dislikes those who discriminate against the aforementioned groups or those easily coerced into doing so. Extreme? Maybe, but at least I'm honest about it.

But it seems many of you nerds think that because the show is getting high ratings, it must be because people are idolizing the 'orange ones'. I'm here to tell you that's not the case.

    by Saen

    Books are just lesser forms of entertainment. A book is just a script, its just a story.

Nay I shall not go read a book; I shall enjoy the far superior modern entertainment of television!

    Well, I've been recently bedridden due to a back injury from a car accident (not my fault)... so for the time being, I've got plenty of time for books, quality film and television, and for social curiosities like 'Jersey Shore'. And there's nothing wrong with laughing at the expense of others... mainly because these idiots are getting paid $30,000 an episode to pump their fists and act like jackasses.

  • Aug. 28, 2010, 8:05 p.m. CST

    Books are lesser forms of entertainment?

    by nico_laos

    Say what? Have you never heard someone say, "The book was way better"? Why do you think people say that? It's probably because books immerse the reader into the entire psyche of the writer. Whereas movies are a result of the interpretations of an entire cast and crew, books (fiction) are the work of a single mind. They are not 'scripts' as you put it, Saen. Scripts are far shorter. Why is it that a book will take days to read, and a movie takes an average of 2 hrs to get through? Think about what you're missing. Of course, there are things that can only be done with film. Books and video are two completely different beasts and each deserves respect and attention. But the wordsmithing done by a master novelist can never be replicated by a television director.

    Homosexuality/ Bi-sexuality on True Blood

    Not sure if I am the only one that noticed this, but it seems like vampire homosexuality/bi-sexuality is different to humans. Maybe the point Alan Ball is trying to make is that they are a whole different species therefore the normal rules do not apply. That carnal lust is part of their nature regardless of the individual's gender. I make this observation because there are two gay humans on the show while the vampires seem to go either way depending on the situation.

    America is not THAT stupid!

    by I Max U Mini

    <p>It's actually ONE in three Americans who stupidly believe Obama is a Muslim. Then again, I do recall when something like 60% thought Iraq was behind the 9/11 attacks.</p> <p></p> <p>As for Burn Notice, great escapist fare and Donovan, Anwar, Campbell, and Gless make a helluva core of actors.</p> <p></p> <p>I think people compare BN to Magnum because of the voice overs, but I prefer Donovan's "spy tips".</p>

    Jersey Shores

    by I Max U Mini

    Never watched it, never will. I'm simply not into reality TV (unless you count watch News Broadcasts). Of course, if you watch FOX (or Faux News, or News for Dumb FUX) then you're still not watching reality TV.

    When will they add editing here

    Almost every show in that list is for morons.

    Really- are you fucking kidding me? Jersey Shore is the number one rated cable show? I might as well kill myself right now because this world is getting worse by the second.

    AMC compared to Showtime/HBO

    by Avengerdude

    Anyone know why there is never any nudity or bad language in AMC's programs. I assume they are a cable channel like HBO and Showtime. True Blood being an obvious example of lots nudity etc. AMC seem to have no problem with violence though.

    Has Burn Noticed evolved beyond...

    by mr.underwater

    cute?<br> Because that's all I could muster for the 4 or 5 S1 episodes I watched. It was a cute show, a pleasant way to kill 45min, but I could never find myself saying "Man, I can't wait for the new season of Burn Notice to start!"

  • Aug. 29, 2010, 1:14 p.m. CST

    this trash should not be given any attention...

    by alienindisguise

    except to let us all know that all the cast members all died horrible and painful deaths. These shows are worthless as are the idiots who view them. Stupid americans.

  • It's one of two shows most talked about here. Thank god, we only have to wait 2 months for the rest of this season's episodes.

    S3 True Blood has been pretty good so far....


    .....except for the prolonged scenes involving Tara, her character invokes no sympathy any more, it is just so irrigating! Also the fairy scenes were pretty weak.

    Unlike SHOWTIME, AMC is not a pay channel. So it is limited in what it can show.

    you're an idiot for watching Jersey Shore

    by SirBiatchReturns

    not the other way around i.e. Jersey Shore watching you.<p>People always say, "Oh, those Jersey Shore people are so stupid. I'm watching them to laugh at them. LMAO."<p>without realizing that the joke is really on you. They're clearly playing it up for camera and earning a good living doing so. Meanwhile you spend hours of your life watching them do mundane average reality TV stuff.<p>WHO'S THE BIATCH NOW?

  • Aug. 30, 2010, 12:40 a.m. CST

    not hating on reality TV in general

    by SirBiatchReturns

    Although it's not my thing. I find Jersey Shore utterly boring. It's OK in small doses i.e. 2-5 minutes, but once you get the vibe of where the episode is going, you know it's gonna be boring and full of more overacting aka "drama."<p>I have more interesting shit to do in life than watch stuff like that.

  • Aug. 30, 2010, 8:47 a.m. CST

    Oh, really?

    by nico_laos

    Then how is Jersey Shore any different than any other scripted comedy on TV? Oh, now I'm not allowed to laugh at something I deem funny on TV? Fuck you, then. I'll laugh if I want.

    by BringingSexyBack

    Nothing like Shore, as it's just a show about a salon. Sure, Tracey and Olivia bring the hardcore guidette 'tude, but it's not about hooking up. It's about everyday personality conflicts. Can't wait for season 2. I have a crush on Olivia. If you power hose the makeup and spray tan off and condition her hair I'm sure she'd clean up pretty good.

    by loonatic

    in the first 2 seasons. it's out of steam now. it's just a cutesy family show now. the overall story arc has meandered long enough.
