  • Dillan

    I thought The Americans did better than that from the press release? Either way, its a pretty good rating but it’ll probably drop next week.

  • Max

    Awesome for THE AMERICANS.

    THE AMERICANS, SOA, and JUSTIFIED >>> the REVENGE of cable, AHS.

  • Dillan

    @Max:

    Wait, you’re saying this is awesome for The Americans when AHS was getting better ratings?

  • Jamie

    Now it’s clear Max has mental issues.

  • S

    @max : you’re so predictible, annoying and ridiculous.

  • zerg

    lol Max… u are scandalous

  • Oliver

    Solid premiere for The Americans, especially when you include the reruns and consider it was 98 minutes long.

  • John A

    No MAX is a person that thinks Total Viewers matter. AHS did way better than that in the demo on average.

  • Kyle

    What about Happily Divorced numbers? Anyone has it?

  • JC

    Don’t feed the troll

    “I thought The Americans did better than that from the press release?”

    Then the PR folks from FX have done their job well.

  • Bee

    very good for the americans. great pilot and excited to see where it goes in the future. as long as it does 0.8 or above and word-of-mouth is good, i think it’s safe and FX will let it grow.

  • DeK

    Who cares if AHS had a higher demo. The Americans still had an impressive debut for an FX drama series

  • Tom

    Necessary Roughness – Same weak 0.6 demo as last week, but down a half million viewers. No way does this show survive with under 2 million viewers. I really feel let down by the way USA let this program slip into mediocrity.

  • Bumblebee

    The Americans press release combined the 10pm premiere and the 11pm encore for a 4.7 mil number. Still, a very good start for it.

  • Nick

    Great for Hot in Cleveland!

  • Adam

    No Kroll Show again in Top 100. Can’t believe CC renewed that terrible show.

  • Frankie

    The Americans had a solid start I thought it would do better though, maybe Chicago Fire affected it.

    Hot in Cleveland is holding up well.

    I saw Whitney’s talk show on E! the last couple of weeks and its really funny. Her castmate on Whitney Chris D’elia is too funny.

  • James

    Good start for the Americans, I’m not sure what ratings FX was expecting because the concept isn’t going grab a lot of viewers at first but I can see this show growing through word of month like AHS S1 did. Skews kind of old by FX standards but at least it didn’t bomb massively like Terriers and Lights Out which were both dead on arrival.

  • Evan

    For an FX premiere those ratings aren’t really that impressive I would definitely be worried for the show. Hopefully the viewership will stay the same and not decrease over time.
