    I don’t know what you guys don’t get about Anger Managment. The show is HUGE for FX. Not only does it repeat well, it’s als sold all over th world for BIG MONEY. International sales were why the show was greenlit for the additionl 90 episodes in the first place. Charlie is going to make close to a billion dollars and FX production and Lionsgate will make 10 times that in sales.

  • Ethan

    Yea SUITS…best show on basic cable!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • brenpo7

    Archer hit a series high for 18-49. With a expection of the pilot, also hit a series high. Very well.

    OK, Anger Management will never be a financial failure for FX. It has already synydation deal and repeats well. But these numbers are bad! Even TBS comedies have better numbers. And they don’t have Charlie Sheen! Also should we mention that it was the season premiere? FX is disappontied, that’s for sure.

  • brenpo7

    Also, I don’t how bad the numbers of Legit but it will probably get renewed. All critics mentions that it’s most cheapest show in the world.

  • Alex

    Very happy to see Archer performing well.

    Looking at Anger Management’s numbers you can’t help but wonder if FX are feeling a little nervous about that back 90. It was a very crowded hour this week though so its nothing to get too worried about just yet. Could be a bumpy ride ahead though.

    On the subject of Suits. Not sure why people are so negative about that performance. It did pretty well. This is about the upper end of what USA does during the regular season, isn’t?

  • Kev

    Not sure why people are complaining about Suits, it’s actually doing much better than any of Usa’s other shows do in the fall/winter time. In fact I’m pretty sure it’s beating Burn Notice as well.

  • Tim

    Thursday’s cable ratings make Cougar Town’s look way better

  • Joe 12-Pack

    If you love Oprah then you are stupid.

  • silvit

    @Kev

    I think they expected it to do better since it was the premiere and it was highly promoted. And it didn’t have that much competition. I personally think it did good, considering that it the summer it just got the same ratings. Compare this to how Burn Notice, Covert Affairs or the TNT shows did in the winter. This is excellent (and I’m not even watching the show).

  • silvit

    @Joe

    Or a woman. Or both. ;-)

  • FlorianN

    Legit (10:30) – FX
    0.650m viewers; 0.4A18-49.

  • Hugh

    Archer 1.0 Nice!

    0.8 for Anger Management is great if its a repeat

  • Ram510

    ARCHER!!!! Honestly Archer season premiere episodes are never as great as the ones later in the season but I’m happy it got good numbers. I hope it can say above a 1.0

  • Rebecca

    The only thing here I watched was Archer, online – great episode, with the Bob’s Burgers crossover story.

  • cris

    Oprha beated Anger Management =D

  • Jerry Styles

    I think the key thing about Anger Management is how well it repeated, I don’t think FX expected huge original numbers against regular broadcast competition. It repeats better than most shows and that’s the whole point of why FX wanted to secure the 90 episodes. If NBC was smart they would’ve picked this up and put it next to Whitney.

    I had a feeling Heat-Lakers would do real good like that.

    Very good rating for TNA for a much hyped episode and great ending. It’s a much better product than the WWE right now and deserves good ratings.

    I think eventually SPIKE should move TNA to Mondays and let Bellator takeover Thursdays completely.

  • OMG

    Suits is a summer show, so it would naturally do a little less well against normal broadcast competition. But a 1.2 would be considered good by USA standards, even in the summer.

  • Tomboy

    House of Anubis???

  • Amy

    House of Anubis – Nickelodeon
    1.478 million viewers, #15; 0.385 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating)

  • Greg

    0.8 is good for FX standards. That’s higher than what The League, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Wilfred and Louie did this season. And if The League, Wilfred and Louie can rate as low as a 0.4 and still get renewed, then you can be sure that FX does not regret giving the back 90 for Anger Management. At least so far.
