  • The End

    Ah Anger Management. So sad.. We’l see when the Olympics is over if you lost viewers because people no longer love you, or are just watching the Olympics.

  • John A

    Anger Mgt hit hard. With all its dropping its hard to see it renewed.

  • Phil M.

    Considering the Olympics challenge being down only a 10th is great for Burn Notice. This season has been fantastic. USA is just killing it this summer.

  • John A

    Olympics dont seem to be that much competiton to most shows. Most shows are steady or up and down a little.

  • tobias

    no pti for the 4th strait day oh well …. GO NICKELODEON!!!

  • Red Jane

    USA Rocks! Suits is doing great and Burn Notice is unbelievable esp. considering is like season 6…

    Anger Management… ouch… unless it was a repeat though I don’t think so…

  • Aerilyn

    Awkward. up in viewers quite a bit, but it went down to a .7 this week? Strange. HOWEVER, it got more viewers than Snooki and JWOWW so that’s good! Next week’s episode is going to be really good based on the promo, and I already really loved last night’s episode. I can’t wait!

  • Jenny

    Awkward up in viewers, and beating Snooki and JWoww in viewers is impressive. I have to say next week looks like it’s going to be stellar. Of course Sadie is the one to do the big reveal. If anyone ever deserved a slap across the face it’s that girl.

  • The End

    @Red Jane

    Nope Anger Management was an original.

  • Aerilyn

    @Jenny, Sadie is totally cruel, but I can’t help but love her character on Awkward. Not that I support bullying, but the actress herself does a great job playing the role.

  • tobias

    any numbers for the espn/joe flacco qb special at 8 pm?

  • Jared

    Last nights episode of AWKWARD was amazing..each episode is getting better and better..cant wait for next week!..

  • Jenny

    @Aeriyn

    Oh, don’t get me wrong I love to hate Sadie and the actress is top-notch. However she deserves some seriously bad karma coming her way for her actions.She loves to destroy people’s lives.

  • EatMorePez

    All of the FX shows took a hit last night.

  • Dan S

    Ouch Louie, only a 1.3 & had a great guest star with Robin Williams. At least it’s already been picked up for another season.

  • Jared

    Anger Management is a moderate success for FX..but is no way a bonafide hit series worthy of a 90 episode pick up. If a no name actor was the lead..this show would be cancelled.

  • disney rocks

    First time in ages Victorious made the list! Go Victorious!

  • Tessa

    I tried watching Burn Notice but it just didn’t grab me. Maybe I gave up on it too soon considering I didn’t like Suits and White Collar at first either, but now Suits is growing on me and WC is one of my favorite shows of all time. Maybe I should watch a bit more of Burn Notice and see if I’ll like it eventually.

    @tobias: JAWS FILM ROOM, ESPN 8p =421,000 viewers and a 0.3 A18-49 rtg

    HOLLYWOOD HEIGHTS, NAN – 851,000 viewers & 0.2 A18-49 rtg.

  • The End

    @Jared

    You’re right, I’m sure once the Olympics are over the numbers will return to roughly 2.5 million, 1.0 18-49. FX has the choice of renewing the show knowing this is the audience, or disgarding it and hoping something better comes along.

    No news is good news. I think It’l be renewed personally, perhaps in a different structure(Such as 22 episode seasons), purely for the Charlie Sheen appeal.

    FX might just take the risk in the hope the audience could grow, and become a huge Two and a Half Men esq hit. It’s a long shot but something worth doing in my opinion.
