    Top Chef seems low for a finale…granted only part 1.

  • rob60990

    The Americans continues to be embarrassing for FX. :D

  • TV Addict

    3rd! Bronze medal!!

  • TV Addict

    It’s nice to see The Americans, Top Chef, and Workaholics all next to each other.

  • Gizamaluke

    @rob60990 by growing from previous weeks? :)

    These haters not even look at the numbers anymore.

  • John A

    At least Southland was up.

  • Steve

    Surprise NHL on NBCSN (Philadelphia at Pittsburgh) didn’t make the list.

  • John A

    The Americans is doing bad compared to AHS where is Max?

  • Denis

    The Americans is doing just fine lol at the haters….
    if it keeps above a 0.6 it will be renewed

  • Julian

    An embarrassment? It’s up a tenth and hovering at the same level as Justified.

    I somehow doubt FX is concerned about The Americans if ratings continue at said level.

  • DougF

    @rob60990

    embarrassing? Justified has been on for 4 seasons with that kind of rating.

    You’re trying too hard and your shtick is old.

  • KT

    The Americans is fantastic TV. I generally watch Nashville at 10PM on Wednesdays, but when Nashville is in repeats like last night, I watch The Americans live.

    Glad it’s up from last week! :)

  • Masterbreel

    The Americans at 0.8, that is oke for a cable i think

  • I Love TV!

    @rob60990

    Are you trying to be the new Max? Because you’re really pissing everybody off

  • Holly

    @I Love TV!

    rob60990 was here long before Max

  • The Original J

    @Holly

    It wouldn’t surprise me if they were the same person.

    Those numbers for The Americans look good. Justified basically gets the same numbers, and it’s been a success for FX.

  • rob60990

    Been pissing people off on this site since 2009. ;)

  • Potato

    So, The Americans was the number one original? Or was robot chicken new or something?

  • rooney72

    The Americans, a very good show that is trending upward, and as someone pointed out, is now in Justified territory ratings wise.

    I predict it will continue to improve. I don’t know why anyone would hate on the show, it’s quality television. FX may feel a number of things about the show, but I’m sure that ‘embarrassment” isn’t one of them.

    Must be one of tvbynumbers guys trying insight flame wars to increase view pages.
