    Demo numbers will still be bad.

  • Dennis

    @Colin Demo will not be “bad”.
    the demo they get is good for the network they are on.

    Fantastic numbers for Longmire

  • Colin

    @ Dennis: Breakout Kings was cancelled with the same ratings on the same network.

  • Rod

    Breakout Kings show creator left for another show on a major network. That is more likely the reason it was counseled

  • Ryan

    Breakout Kings numbers were not as good as Longmire and the Glades

  • Gary

    Love the Glades, seriously one of the best cable summer shows.

  • Bill

    Best 2 shows of the summer! Here’s hoping The Glades gets a 4th season and Longmire goes at least 5 seasons. I can’t say enough about summer cable TV. It just destroys network TV in quality!!!!!!

  • The End

    @Colin

    Breakout Kings Season 2 was consistantly getting under 2 million viewers for the whole of Season 2 pretty much besides episode 1, with lows of 1.27 million.

    Compare that to this episode of Longmire getting 4.5 million, there’s a HUGE difference there.

  • Eric_Philly

    Go, Detective Longworth, go!

  • Colin

    @ The End: Only the demo numbers are relevant. Breakout Kings got about a 0.7., Longmire gets about a 0.7.

  • Ryan

    Demo numbers are what is important but there were some Breakout Kings episodes with less viewers than there have been vIewers 25-54 for The Glades and Longmire and that’s another important demo plus a couple of Breakout Kings episodes did .4s while the Glades and Longmire have only hit a .5 once and that was right before the 4th of July when everything was down

    Heck with a name like Robert Taylor, Longmire is a winner.

    The actor is so low keyed, he’s a gentle giant in every scene.

    Solving the crime with compassion and fairness, but solving the crime, nonetheless, is his goal.

    Yes, he has anger issues and mystery in his life, but that will be revealed slowly over time.

    The Glades is pure summer entertainment like Leverage. Great shows.

  • William

    Love the Glades, what a great show. What a far cry from John Conner in T2 for Ed Furlong. lol

  • Ted

    Longmire had 4.5 million people watching, the demo and the overall numbers are rising. It’s a hit.

  • DW

    longmire is a really good show. and the ratings are really good for a show that isn’t getting much press.

  • Bob Jones

    I have to start watching Longmire!

    I used to watch The Glades, but I have left it out of my rotation – I watch Continuum (Showcase/Canada) and Falling Skies (TNT). Leverage just started so I’ll try to add that back since I have watched all the episodes.

  • sofaslug

    Go Longmire!

  • Max Friedman

    BRING BACK THE GLADES FOR A FOURTH SEASON AND KEEP JIM AND CALLIE TOGETHER. BRING HER BACK TO FLA. WHERE SHE BELONGS. IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE THAT OTHERS GOT A JOB AND SHE DID NOT. THEY ARE GREAT TOGETHER.

  • Max Friedman

    Please bring back The Glades for a 4th Season. The cast is great and it is my favorite show. Jim and Callie are super together and Jim is a terrific detective. It is a great lead in for Longmire, another good show. You have already renewed that so come on and renew The Glades.

  • Max Friedman

    Put Season 1 for The Glades on ON DEMAND. One and three were better than Season 2.
