Game of Thrones set series highs for HBO on Sunday. Meanwhile, the VMA's were no match in comparison.

Project Runway got off to a good start. Real Housewives of Dallas and Baller Wives faded in week 2 and networks seem to believe that enough time has passed to officially have Jersey Shore nostalgia (Ratings for the E! special are in the post. Also, VH1 announced today that they are basically making their own Jersey Shore spinoff).

Baller Wives had a decent premiere showing. The same cannot be said for Real Housewives of Dallas. The people behind Nashville will at least have some time to work on the show and see if they can try to captivate a few more former fans to give next season a second chance.

The premiere for Dance Moms is a bit low. It is my understanding that the show was forced to make changes this season just for the show to be viable (as in replacing the main star because the main star has to serve time in jail). Perhaps the network is prepared to weather the storm and deal with whatever comes their way (much like how Bravo did with Real Housewives of New Jersey a few years ago). I will also note that those finale numbers for Basketball Wives are higher than the last LA finale, but slightly lower than the last Miami finale. Overall, the show will probably get renewed because VH1 put the show in a position where it would be nearly impossible for the show to fail.

Another straight list this week. I guess I will offer a few passing thoughts on a couple of shows. Power looks strong and it is holding up well against Game of Thrones. Signed can't afford to lose too many viewers, but I don't think it is in the dead zone at the moment. Finally, I still believe that VH1 is looking to move Daytime Divas to another network rather than outright renewing or canceling the show.
