    @Oliver
    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.

    Its not weird at all budy not anyone could afford 20 dollars every mount

  • Bee

    wait, isn’t that a SERIES HIGH in the demo for homeland!? if so, AWESOME!

  • Oliver

    @jo

    It is weird, because the UK has about a fifth of the population of the US and it’s an import.

    I believe it’s easily the most watched US show in the UK.

  • Maxine

    @LT the only thing you’ll beat is your cock you butt-hurt fanboy.

  • jo

    @Oliver

    It doesnt matter if Homeland was on basic cable it would be higher for sure US has over 300 mill population but only 100 million are dedicate to TV

  • Poweranimals

    My posts don’t seem to be going through.

  • Poweranimals

    Can someone give me the ratings for TMNT and Power Rangers on Sat?

  • TMDude

    “Homeland Hits Series High”, where is it on the headline?. Thx.

  • TMDude
  • JJ

    I love both TWD and Homeland and think they are among the top shows right now but Homeland has just as many inconsistencies and plot holes as TWD, in their current seasons I would say Homeland has actually had more. I hope TWD’s definite improvement in quality over season 2 and the continued juggernaut ratings will open the minds of academy voters and at least get it some nominations in the major awards categories.

  • Jeremy

    TMNT Ratings Please! Hoping atleast 3 mill for that awesome Shredder Episode :)

  • karin

    Dexter is so boring..i can’t..
    Only waiting for Homeland ..

  • Maxine

    @ JJ: Finally a sane person.

  • TheSlayer

    You mad Homeland fans, even though Dexter goes against a monster like the Walking Dead, it still gets better ratings than Homeland, lol. No but seriously I still like Homeland.

  • Nick

    AMC needs to put a new show behind The Walking Dead. Or at least put one of its struggling shows behind it, like Mad Men. It would get monster ratings.
