  1. Like I just said, this isn’t a premiere record for BGC. It’s really close though (Season 6 w/ 1.712 million).

  2. Well so far it’s beating season 4. I’m not sure if all the previews made people want to see the show more or turned them off. Anywho I’m sure the ratings will go up a bit.

    1. you can say that again :)

      1. wheres love games??

      2. TVBTN didn’t have it (probably because the ratings were too low) and it aired at 11 so it wouldn’t have been on Futon Critic.

        Also Oxygen didn’t send out a press release so don’t expect to see it.

      3. how lame -_-

      4. THIS IS ONLY EP 1 SO DONT GET TO EXCITED NOW THATS ITS GOIN TO BEAT BGC4 ONCE THE TWINS LEAVE N THE 3 REPLACEMENTS COME THE RATINGS R GOIN DOWN…:P

      5. you don’t now that cause it hasn’t happen yet…so open your mouth when the time comes.

      6. OH HONNEY I KNW IS OBVIUS ALL BGC FANS THINK THE SAME OF BGC8 N BEATING BGC4 RATINGS THIS SEASONS HAV NOTHIN ON BGC4:)))P THEY STAYIN IN THE 1MIL FOOOO SUREE HA

      7. Blah blah blah blah blah BGC8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. It did pretty damn good! I cannot wait for the next episode!

  4. Almost always in BGC the ratings go down after the premiere no matter how good it was.

  5. Kourtney and Kim pulls the same as Love and Hip Hop with ten times the publicity.
    When am i going to see Yandy on CBS This Morning?

    1. When K Fat goes into treatment for anorexia.

  6. So glad TLG is getting better ratings now. I know it’s not out of the woods yet but ABC FAM must be happy.

    1. You’re right. It’s not 100% safe yet but they aren’t pulling their hair out over this show either. They might want a few more weeks before they decide on anything.

  7. Damn, Southland went down. I hope TNT don’t axe the show. But at least Tabitha went up!

  8. So BGC8 did pretty good?

    I was kinda expecting something in the 2 mills but I’ll take this.

  9. And wtf with the huge spike in ratings for PLL? This week’s episode was boring as hell.

    1. Agreed. It was so uninspiring,I couldn’t think of much to say about it. Although if this is the ratings for a mediocre episode, I can imagine the finale will break records for them. They really need to stop dragging the show with so many filler episodes.

      1. I think I might skip the next 7 episodes and just watch them all the day of the season finale.

      2. There are too many useless people… Caleb, Lucas, Aria’s mother, Aria’s family, Ezra, Wren, Maya and Toby. They need clearing out.

    2. LMAO. right?????? Khi. I miss our fighting days, because I’m sick of you typing everything I’m thinking of.

      1. LMAO. The good ole’ days.

        Yes, weird how we went from being New York & Pumkin to Ashley & Farrah.

  10. Khi do you fuck with Amy? I love that crazy bitch. I’m so surprised 8 seasons in and it’s still prime in the ratings. I hope this season we hit 2 mil again.

  11. WHRS LOVE GAMES FINALE RATINGS?…

    1. If you read the comments you would know the answer.

      1. Hahaha some people never pay attention.

      2. THATS WEIRD CUS IMEAN LG3 FINALE WAS RIGHT AFTER BGC8 EP 1 DONT HET Y DONT THEY HAV THE RATINGS THEY SHOULD BE HIGH….

      3. Pretty sure they weren’t high because Oxygen didn’t say anything about them either so it probably wasn’t up to their expectations.

  12. I’m surprised tabatha ratings are that low.

    1. That’s actually high for her show.

      I’ve seen some ratings for those salon takeover shows that were like half of that.

  13. I jus’ know that I’m watching BGC 8. This season started out very wild. Amy is nuts, jus’ my opinion. PEACE!!!
