    love to see the soup on the list!

  • Doug

    Jesus Max, you are one tiresome troll.

    AHS is… an interesting show. I love the ambient and moments it creates, but don’t take the larger arcs too seriously. Far too many were dropped this season, but on the whole, I enjoyed it much more than last year.

  • cas

    Every who is saying AHS did bad, isn’t a 1.3 in cable a great rating? I don’t see many shows get in the 1’s.

  • silvit

    @cas

    It’s not that it did bad, it’s that it underperformed given the buzz and S1 ratings. It ended lower in S2.

    In the world of scripted cable though, it did great. A 1.3 during the regular season is something few shows can do.

  • William

    American Horror Story turned out to be interesting this season after all. Never heard of Moonshiners….

  • Paul

    Fortunately for AHS, they can have a new story next year. No one (as in, the general public) was into the story this year that strongly like last year.

  • david

    I agree that is pretty funny that TNT at late night did average CW Monday and Tuesday night numbers for original shows on CW. Great to see Super Natural and Castle and Cold Case doing good for them thow.

  • dexterfan

    american horror story did great. we are talking about cable here. and except the walking dead and sons of anarchy, usually you don’t get to see these shows going bigger than high 1’s. not event game of thrones if i recall. a 1.3 would almost be ok even for nbc at this point. well, not really.. justified, for example, premiered with a 1,5 and that was one of their best premiers ever. and the finale was really good.
    oh, and also.. i hope the writers of necessary roughness are preparing a wrap-up because the third season will definitely be its last.

  • william

    Shipping Wars is a great show, they’re rating is between 1.5 to 1.6 million viewers a week!
    I’d try to catch up when baggage Battles are in replay.
    But don’t worry, there already coming back for another season called 4!

    Baggage Battle is a good show too, but I’m not sure about the ratings here in the million viewers?
    They say it’s a very popular show, and despite no one watches it? There coming back for a season 3.

  • Mark3

    Bring on season 3 OF AHS!! amazing season. Amazing numbers!
