    First!

  • TV Addict

    Lol jk, I’m not one of these people.

  • rob60990

    Anger Management up barely. Archer is doing well for FX.

  • SoCal

    Archer is killing it this year!!!!!

  • John A

    Archer so young skewing.

  • AJ

    SUITS is doing very well!!!

  • Mr Mikey

    What the hell was fx thinking picking up 90 episodes of Anger Management? The show is awful.

  • Ram510

    Wow Archer really went up this week, happy for the show! Too bad it wasnt last week cause that was a waaaay better episode. Still great for Archer, it deserves good ratings as I hope it hits a new series high soon

  • Moose

    Suits maybe doing well, but the quality of the writing has surely suffered over the last five or six episodes. Given the age of the characters and the immature way that they have been acting, it has really made the show almost impossible to watch.

    Not to mention how implausible I believe the primary story line have become.

  • Ram510

    Matter of fact isn’t it about time FX gives Archer a renewal since clearly it’s getting renewed. Especially if the can renew Americans which doesn’t even get the ratings Archer does

  • John A

    Is Archer up alot this year? I thought the show was a low performer other seasons?

  • craigward

    if I remember correctly, Archer was around 1m viewers and around 0.6-0.7 A18-49 for previous seasons.

    it’s definitely up this season

  • rob60990

    Ya where is Archer’s renewal? They rush to give underperforming Americans a renewal.

  • DougF

    So that 5th season (and maybe 6th season) order of Archer should be any day now.

  • Shepherd

    @John A

    I wouldn’t say Archer is up “a lot” this season, but it is up maybe 20-25% average. The thing is, Archer has been up season over season since it began airing. Season one typical ratings were .4-.5 with a high of .8 (second episode after lots of buzz from episode 1). Season two premiered at .7 and the typical ratings were ~.5-.6. It hit .7 at least twice during season two. Season three saw a lot of .7′s and .8′s and one .9 I believe. This season the ratings have been: 1.0, 1.1, 1.0, .9, .8, 1.1 (today)

  • Shepherd

    @DougF

    Didn’t they announce a multi-year deal along with the season 4 renewal?

  • Sally

    When was the last time Kathy got more than 300 thousand viewers? Maybe it should be a web only show.

  • Elijah

    I remembet during Archer season one when people thought (including me) thought the show has a strong chance of being cancelled. I believe it did have a .3 during season one in the 18-49 demo once

  • Reache

    Archer Management FX. Charlie… who?

  • lakersupbyten

    B&B steady Yay!! Elementary climbing hooray!!!
