    @Justin121

    Are you kidding? The Walking Dead has no story just bunch of boring people killing walkers…

    This show is a shame for good writing… I guess MUST people like that… they don’t have to think.

    Thank GOD we have HBO!

  • John

    @Maxine: So, you have seen every seen every single episode of something you perceive to be abysmal! Stop trolling around.

  • Joshua

    *MOST

  • Oliver

    Homeland gets great ratings for Showtime. Premium cable has a fundamentally different business model than basic cable.

    That said, it is a bit weird that Homeland gets nearly twice as many viewers in the UK, where it is shown on broadcast television, than in the US.

  • Maxine

    Did I hurt your feelings? You know it’s the truth: Dexter sucks. Stop being a fanboy.

  • Jesse

    The walking Dead is bouncing back and forth each week. 5.8,5.1,5.4,4.9,5.6, and now 4.9. It keeps gaining and losing a million nor so total viewers every other week. Each of the six weeks of this season are the six highest rated episodes of the series though.

  • somebody

    @ Joshua, really? That’s not all the shows about, the walkers serve as the backdrop. Anybody who has watched TWD knows there is a lot more to the show than boring people killing walkers.

  • jT

    @nikki best is the only one that counts…

  • Maxine

    Don’t worry. Joshua is just another frustrated virgin. He only likes HBO shows ’cause he can see some titty action there.

  • Maxine

    You again jT? Sit down and suck some more. Maybe afterwards we’ll watch Homoland.

  • BigHouse

    Yeahhhhhh sponge bob are in the 3.0 views
    I Love Spongebob squarepants

  • RJ

    The Walking Dead was slow last week, and it was likely it was going to decrease…see my comment from last week. Next week, however, the ratings will go up. A lot was set in motion in the most recent episode.

  • Jesse

    I think Max went under the knife and is now Maxine.

  • John

    LOL BigHouse. I blurted out laughing. A drastic change in tone from others. Spongebob ftw though.

  • Maxine

    Nope, we’re not the same. I actually like AHS :p

  • Mon

    I hate Merle! I hope walkers tear him apart on the mid season finale. He’s disgusting.

  • jo

    omg i hate Big BANG twg should be higher

  • LT

    I don’t think it is ok for a man to hit a woman but, this maxine character deserves a good beating. That is all.

  • SarahL

    I am disappointed that The Walking Dead went down, but Dexter is doing quite nicely and it was a very good episode.

  • POI

    TWD will live forever i hope cuz with these ratings it wont be going anywhere anytime soon and if it stays on this level for the rest of the season AMC should renew it for 2 season or more. and should increase its episodes by alot.
