Summer has started but there are still sitcom airings, new and repeats. We will be back with our normal weekly ratings report with the first four nights numbers and analysis in the fall, but we still will have our regular how the sitcoms did all summer long! Here are our summer ratings:

Summer Week 5 (June 24-30) How the Network Sitcoms Did

Last Sunday Sitcoms (counts for week of June 17-23)

Friday Sitcoms
  • None.
Saturday Sitcoms
  • None.
Airing tonight (Sunday) are repeats of Fox Animation Domination from 7-10pm.

Summing it up. Repeats of all The Big Bang Theory airings, Two and a Half Men, 2 Broke Girls, were impressive for the week. Everything else was OK (such as repeats of Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother) or just plain old terrible (such as repeats of New Girl and new airings of The Goodwin Games, Family Tools).



Feeling the repeat blues? Look for original sitcoms on TV this summer. Some highlights include: Monday at 8:30pm on Fox has the finale of The Goodwin Games at 8:30pm. ABC has an original episode of Family Tools on Wednesday at 8:30pm. On cable, Melissa & Joey and Baby Daddy this Wednesday beginning at 8pm are repeats due to the 4th of July holiday. TV Land has special encore insider episodes from premieres of the summer season of Hot in Cleveland this Wednesday at 10pm, followed by The Exes at 10:30pm and The Soul Man at 11pm only on TV Land. BET will return with the second half of the season of The Game on Tuesday, July 2 at 10pm. TBS airs Sullivan & Son Thursdays at 10, with a repeat this Thursday because of 4th of July. Nick at Nite has the Scott Baio sitcom See Dad Run every Sunday at 8pm but a repeat is tonight, while Wendell & Vinnie airs Thursdays at 8:30pm with a repeat this week. FX's Charlie Sheen sitcom Anger Management airs Thursdays at 9:30pm but is preempted this Thursday for the 4th of July. New sitcom airings are the perfect way to beat the summer blues!
