    I think you’ll see good consistent numbers for The Americans. It’s right in FX’s wheelhouse and they move (slightly) into more mainstream shows to attract a (slightly) larger audience. It’s quality television.

  • Dan S

    It goes without saying Americans trounced Necessary Roughness. Hopefully Americans won’t die in the ratings like Terriers did. Still miss that show.

  • Nick

    OK for The Americans, I guess. As long as it stays above 1.0, it’s OK.

  • Concerned Citizen

    @Evan

    It’s not necessarily what I’d call a hit, but I think those are pretty decent numbers. And it’s not as likely to drastically fall as a network series might be; could very well rise over time. Plus, while FX can’t entirely ignore ratings like HBO can under certain circumstances, they are a network that values their brand name, and The Americans has been very well received, which helps in that regard. I’m also willing to bet that they’d rather not piss off Graham Yost, who created Justified and is an executive producer on The Americans. There are a lot of factors in its favor, to be honest with you. I really don’t think we have to worry about its long-term chances, barring a complete collapse in future weeks.

    PS: For anybody who’s reading this and who didn’t catch the show last night, I’d check it out. The pilot was quite good, and the show has the potential to be great.

    I know it’s been asked, but Happily Divorced ratings? Thanks

  • Greg

    The Americans did better than Guys with Kids. Hilarious.

    Happily Divorced 1.131 million viewers 0.394 million adults 18-49 0.3 rating

  • silvit

    I was already over the Americans when the 3 days later thing appeared on the screen. Just boring.

    Next week the ratings will be lower.

  • bsp

    “The Americans” could have been better. The whole prospect of keeping a guy tied up in a car’s trunk for days, inside your garage, is ludicrous. Can you say “bodily functions”? How bad would that trunk/car/garage have smelled, while (oh by the way) the new FBI neighbor was, at one point, just a couple of feet away from the open trunk? On a broader, less disgusting note, I don’t see many engaging plot directions ahead. I really like Keri Russell, and she was good in this, and I’ve respected Graham Yost since “Boomtown” and “Raines,” but I’m not optimistic.

  • Nick

    Nice to see Hot in Cleveland and Happily Divorced up!

  • Jonathan

    Great numbers for Hot In Cleveland! Actually watched it live this week. Such a funny show!

  • cimmer

    yay FX, another well written and acted show with good production values. I can appreciate the shows FX puts out even if they’re not always my cup of tea, they have a good eye for quality IMHO.

  • teeveegirl

    Any number for Style’s two specials “House Calls with Cat Deely” or “Celebrity Closet Confidential”?
