    unless the ratings become EXTRA terrible (0.5 or under), i’m not giving up on the americans yet. the feedback seems to be good and hopefully word of mouth spreads.

    @DenverDean
    Syndicated shows can be like an old friend that keeps you company while you do everyday tasks. You already know the episode, so you don’t have to see every second of it to enjoy it. How many times, I wonder, has each of the 251 episodes of M*A*S*H aired in syndication? It went off the air 30 years ago this month (2/28), and still has a spot on TVLand… I think the secret is that TBBT, like M*A*S*H or Seinfield or Friends, is a character-driven ensemble show, and as long as you like the characters, you don’t mind having them around.

    I think it also says that there’s a big audience out there that REALLY rejects the low-budget reality programming choices that dominate the airtime of most cable networks.

  • Julian

    Please, unless The Americans drops substantially, it’s in no real danger. Word of mouth is good, reviews have been positive so panic seems premature at this stage.

    Hell, Justified has been hovering at 0.9 for the past couple of weeks and the sky doesn’t appear to be falling.

  • silvit

    As predicted, The Americans tanked. Just boring.

  • Benny

    Anyone know how the Kroll show has been doing so far?

  • Dan S

    Necessary Roughness is finished at 0.5 & worried about The Americans. If it keeps dropping it’ll be a 1 season wonder like Terriers was.

  • detroit_fan

    Hope the Americans picks up.

  • d4h8a15r16m23a42

    @Detroit_fan
    I don’t think its been doing great but it has already been renewed for a second season so no need to worry.

  • Max

    Why are folks worried about THE AMERICANS? It is basically doing what the non-hit REVENGE of cable, AMERICAN HORROR STORY was doing and FX stupidly renewed that.

  • d4h8a15r16m23a42

    Sorry that was @Benny in reference to kroll show

  • Tom

    Necessary Roughness is dying a well deserved death. The show was great for the eight episode first season. Then the writers just had to mess it up by turning it into an ensemble show. The final straw was when the writers put Danni into a romantic triangle with the two leading men. What a cliche.

  • Nick

    Hot in Cleveland?? anybody have the numbers?

  • THE OLD MAN

    Moonshiners only scored 1.1

    Numbers were depressed on Cable as well

  • Luis

    Hot in Cleveland – TV Land
    1.288 million viewers, #10; 0.404 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating)

    Happily Divorced – TV Land
    1.064 million viewers, #13; 0.360 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating)

  • Joe

    @max

    You have no brain. It’s funny lol. AHS got a 1.2 or 1.3 basically every week. Americans is at a 0.8 in only its second episode. It’s not even close. You’re not so bright.

    If the show stay above a 0.5, it will be renewed. 0.5 is the bubble. below 0.5 and it’s canceled.

  • hoon

    Weird that Kroll Show is never published in the ratings on this site. The Futon Critic had it listed as getting a .4

  • The 47th

    Such a shame with The Americans…they completely won me over with this episode. I’ll be watching even if its future gets darker in the coming weeks.

  • Beauty and the Flop

    The Americans haters lol, get a life, the show is great and it isn’t going anywhere.

  • PurpleDrazi

    Scary drop for The Americans but it’s still OK for now. Several critics have said that the third episode is their favorite so maybe things will pick back up (or at least stop dropping).

  • T

    It’s far soon to tell for the Americans yet. I’m not planning its funeral yet.
