    @ potato

    That was pretty damn amusing. Thank you so much, I needed a laugh right now.

  • rob60990

    Scandal will be pulling lower ratings than AHS soon, don’t worry. :D

  • rob60990

    GO Full House!!

  • KJ Styles

    That Eddie Murphy tribute on Spike last night was AWESOME!

  • maculae

    Is this the first time the 7:30 airing of The Daily Show made the list? What made that happen?

  • Dan S

    I always get a good laugh @ Max & then the responses to his post. I understand Jessica Lange will star yet again in its 3rd season. If Nashville doesn’t see a 2nd season maybe Connie Britton can come back to AHS.

  • Jon

    Why does Duck Dynasty do better than a quality show like American Horror Story. What is the appeal of that stupid show?

  • LAUREN-MARIE

    ***********************************IGNORE MAX********************************

    Everyone just ignore this obviously very lonely person. (MAX) I have never witnessed such a sad person who obviously sits at their computer every week at the same time to try and get some needed attention. Get out you geek and get a life!

    Very happy to hear we will be getting a season 3 UK FAN!!!

  • JR

    Nice for AHS. Those demo ratings are perfectly acceptable for a cable show, esp. FX.

  • FilmTurtle

    What the fetch happened to “Top Chef”? Its ratings are imploding. Did Bravo just over-merchandise it? It’s still a solid, entertaining show. That’s their only real success outside the “Real Housewives.”

  • Azzman

    @Ram510

    I COMPLETELY agree with you on 666 Park Ave–the best show no one’s watching! I almost hate getting caught up in it cuz I know it’s gonna get canceled! :(

  • Flarikker

    Wow. AHS took a beat down(feathers) by the Duck! LOL

  • Maxine

    wow cajun pawn stars is tanking.

  • Dr Z

    Jon… Watch a few episodes of Duck Dynasty and then you’ll know what the appeal of “that stupid show” is. (<—to quote Jon). People who *don't* enjoy this fun, warm, entertaining, and amazingly funny show clearly have no idea what makes a successful show the success that it is, or more often, never even watch shows that they just "assume" are stupid, dumb or just simply *beneath them*. BTW… AHS is "far" from being "quality". The writing so far is sub par this year…at best. However, if you're looking for quality shows (acting, story, and dialogue), look no further than The Walking Dead of Game of Thrones. Both are of the highest quality TV shows of the past decade! And in the genre of feel good comedy shows….Duck Dynasty is the clear surprise hit of the year!

  • hardline_pro

    @Dr Z – Viewers like you are what is ruining TV…

  • BagToPunch

    @Dr Z

    If you’re a real Dr you should have your licence revoked.

  • Justin121

    Duck seems to be the new cable powerhouse, taking over Jersey Shore, American Horror Story, and others.

  • Hillbilly

    Chelsea has been using the extra room in her new studio for all kinds of wacky things. Doesn’t seem to be helping in her ratings. :( I keep trying to tell her to let Chuy host. ;)

  • JJ

    Duck Dynasty looks stupid from the previews but it’s surprisingly entertaining, I’d definitely recommend giving it a shot at least. It’s not as trashy as you might think.

    crazy duck.
