    They are not the same person because rob has been here long enough to know that sock puppetry will get you banned. Neither are Bill/Robert either, but people love asinine conspiracy theories…

  • EatMorePez

    FX has a couple of true embarrassments on their hands at the moment. They’re called Legit and Anger Management.

  • Connman

    rob60990 is embarrassing himself!

  • DougF

    @Connman
    He really is. FX renewed The Americans for a second season

  • davie

    Supernatural rerun on TNT at 10am tied the Series Premiere of Cult. Thats nuts

  • LF

    Glad Southland went up and popped up twice on the list. I didn’t realize it had premiered last week until I saw it on my DVR over the weekend. I was prepared yesterday. Hopefully the upward trend continues.

  • John A

    No one comments on Southland anymore. The Fanbase has disappeared

  • DenverDean

    I’m glad TNT saved Southland, just wish it was for more than 10 episodes. It’s hard to believe that it will only have 43 episodes after five seasons. On the other hand, considering NBC was done with it. TNT has produced 30 more hours. I’ll take a 10 epi S6!

  • Sab G

    Just to go some way towards proving John A wrong: I still watch and love Southland. It’s still quality TV.

  • torylicious

    i really like The Americans is so good tv

  • John A

    @Sab G I like Southland too and used to see alot more comments last year is all i meant. Wish it was doing better.

  • Aldridge

    Kobe = RATINGS!

  • Tom

    USA must be nuts for giving Necessary Roughness ten more episodes this summer. The show’s ratings have deteriorated steadily since the show went to an ensemble format after first eight episode series. This is one turkey USA should have stuffed.

  • Tom

    The Americans was just renewed for a 13 episode second season. Good news for us Cold Warriors.

  • Chuck

    Southland is EASILY one of the best shows on the air!

  • Hillbilly

    The Soup made the list, but not Chelsea Lately. :???:

    E! must base her shows success on the 18-34 female audience.

  • Mark3

    Southland is tnt best show!!!!!

  • i luv nickelodeon

    Wow look at those drake and josh ratings! Over 2.8 million views and a 0.6 rating.Thats really good for an old episode.

  • Nate

    Glad Southland was up too. Last weeks 0.4 was probably due to changing from Tuesdays to Wednesdays. Now that people are aware Southland is back maybe the ratings will tick up a little more. I’m still not giving up the possbility of season 6.

  • Bizarro

    Yea southland went up a tenth!
