After falling last week, Tosh.0 rebounded its best rating in weeks, scoring 2.41 million viewers and 1.6 demo. Not only was it up four tenths from last week, but it was also the highest rated show on cable. It's lead out was the series premiere of Inside Amy Schumer, which debuted to 1.56 million viewers and 0.9 demo. Not a huge start, but it is the top Comedy Central launch of the season, besting previous timeslot occupant, The Jeselnik Offensive.
A new episode of Discovery's Deadliest Catch continued its post-premiere drops, falling to 2.80 million viewers and 1.2 demo. Week two of Backyard Oil slipped to 1.68 million viewers and 0.6 demo. My guess is this show will not be back for a second season, given its poor retention and overall low numbers.
The (official) season finale of Dance Moms finished the season with 1.98 million viewers and 0.8 demo. Next week Lifetime will be airing a Tell All special.
BET's combination of The Game and Let's Stay Together continue to be a good combination. The Game nabbed 2.14 million viewers and 1.0 demo, with the other series posting 1.49 million viewers and 0.7 demo.
Week three of Who Gets the Last Laugh? is not giving TBS many laughs. The show plummeted to 1.19 million viewers and 0.5 demo, down a whopping 32% among total viewers and 45% in the demo from week two. It's lead in (The Big Bang Theory encore) was down a bit from last week, giving 'Laugh' retention of only 50%.
The highest rated NBA Playoff game went to the 1045 game on TNT, which put up 3.15 million viewers and 1.4 demo, good enough for second place on the night.
