    @JC, I don’t think anyone would think Ink Master is a guidebook for the CIA ;-)

  • bsp

    Love me some Covert Affairs. Wish the numbers were better…

  • FlorianN

    Hell yeah for ‘Face Off’.

  • Flarikker

    Agree with Oliver……Men Who Built America is a well produced program for the History channel…hate to see it end next week.

    Wow good numbers for NBA, even though the league is just full of prima donna’s

  • Daniel

    SOA got a netflix boost there first week season 4 has been on netflix

  • Mr Mikey

    @Cody

    In terms of professional sports yes, but college football is more popular than the NBA.

  • MikeRand

    I was on the top rated non-sports program of the night that won its time slot! History’s “The Men Who Built America!” I was in both hours of the show! :)

  • NE1

    I bow down to Big Bang Theory.

  • maider

    covert affairs is so boring, don’t watch if you ask me

  • Jay

    It seems that network shows rerun on cable do better than most if the crap on cable

  • Richard Steven Hack

    Covert Affairs was pretty good this week. I like that one of the main issues involved Kari Matchett, my favorite character on the show. Next week promises to be even better as all the conflicts appear to heat up.

    The one part of this week’s episode that jarred me – and provides support for the notion that the show curries favor with the CIA – was the “there’s no collateral damage” crap. There are several studies that show that drone strikes produce significant collateral damage. Worse, given the “rules of engagement” that declare “every able bodied male in the vicinity” as a legitimate target, these rules guarantee massive collateral damage. In fact, the studies show the vast majority of dead bodies are civilians. So it’s disingenuous to say something like that.

    OTOH, the writers are probably correct that it’s the way people in the CIA think, so it was probably a “realistic” line for the characters to say. It would have been nice to show visually that it wasn’t true, however.

    All in all, the show has been getting better in my view. Piper’s performance and her character’s development has been more adult and less “innocent” than before. Thinning out the cast – losing the sister, Jay, etc. – has been good for the show, letting it become more intense and focused.

    Any numbers for the wsop final table on ESPN?

  • Brain Doesn’t Work

    NBA is killing MLB right now.

    MLB should start focusing on superstars like the NBA does. Nobody can focus on teams better than the NFL or college football.
