  • Rabbit

    Adults love their Robot Chicken and Family Guy reruns.

  • DenverDean

    CSI:NY in fringe = CASTLE in prime. CBS better keep NY. LOL

  • RJ

    The Americans dropped pretty low.

  • Jimmy

    Wow I was hoping The Americans wouldn’t fall below a 1.0 for episode two. Hopefully it doesn’t fall further, I think this show actually has potential.

    Speaking of potential, go Workaholics!

  • rob60990

    The Americans TANKED.

  • DenverDean

    At what point will TBS burn out TBBT – I believe it runs 13 or 14 times a week, which is a lot for only 110 episodes.

  • Nick

    Can someone post the Hot in Cleveland numbers? Thanks!

  • Megan

    Well obviously The Americans wasn’t going to beat their premiere numbers. Regardless, there’s still time for the numbers to go up and the critics all seem to really enjoy this show so I’m hoping this gets more people to tune in. It really is a great show.

  • Michael

    Whoa, happened to “The Americans?” That’s quite a steep drop!

  • Mon

    @DenverDean
    I believe that’s the last airing of CSI: NY on TNT for now while encores of Southland, Boston’s Finest etc. take over the 11pm (and onwards) slot.

    TNT did the right thing scrapping Las Vegas, The Closer, and others in the afternoon. Bones is doing well in the afternoon despite having so-so ratings in primetime late last year; thus Castle replaced it.

  • DougF

    Robot Chicken is only new on Sundays.

  • Rabbit

    @DenverDean The answer is “never.” People will watch, regardless if they have seen the same episode 2000 times.

  • iggy agrimotor

    At what point will TBS burn out TBBT

    I dunno, Seinfeld and Friends lasted 10-15 years in most markets.

  • I luv nickelodeon

    @Nick
    Life with boys premiere #s ?? (@8-9 pm on TEENnick)

  • Oliver

    @DenverDean

    I think TBS is aware of the issue of burning out TBBT, which is likely the reason they are cutting back to launch original programming off the back of it (e.g. Cougar Town and King of the Nerds).

  • Meanie

    Fanily Guy & TBBT is dominating cable every night. Turner Broadcasting Inc knew what these was doing when they syndicated these shows. Mnind you all episodes has been seen about thousands of time but they have a loyal fanbase.

    Americans haven’t seen it but is it good. I always wanted to check it out.

  • Economics 305

    Remember last week when Max said that The Americans did way better than AHS:A? Um, did AHS ever drop below a 1.0? Yeah, no. WHAT NOW, TROLL?!?

  • rob60990

    Sure The Americans are not done dropping yet. :D

  • Andrea

    I wish this site would grow some and ban this troll Rob60990.

  • Michael

    And I was loving Americans. damn it, ratings!
