  • Elijah

    So happy to see archer grow a lot over the years.

  • Alienware

    Archer is having an amazing season, probably the best one so far, creatively wise, happy to hear that it’s doing quite good also in the ratings.

  • Ethan

    Suits was amazing last night!

  • Ram510

    1.0 1.1 1.0 .9 .8 1.1 Archer #’s this season so far. It’s doing awesome!

  • THE OLD MAN

    Don’t like the drop for Swamp People, but #1 is still #1

  • Mike

    Those new AMC reality shows were not on the list again…hahaha.
    Does anyone know the ratings? I was curious how low they actually were.

  • Phil

    Swamp People is horrible so far this season. What happened?

  • samurai99

    Glad to see suits going out strong.

  • THE OLD MAN

    @ Phil

    Hurrican Isaac? Have they shown RJ & Jay Paul yet? I don’t like the Texans–can’t we think of another name besides “Bigfoot?” Jeez..

  • Oliver

    King of the Nerds is starting to fall off.

    AMC reality is bombing. According to TFC, Comic Book Men, Immortalised and Freakshow are getting 0.1, 0.1 and 0.2 respectively. Ouch. TWD’s popularity isn’t transferring to the rest of their schedule.

  • Ben

    Wow! Archer is doing alright! Great news for a cable program. The renewal announcement should made in a few weeks.

  • SarahL

    Archer! Yay!

  • Golden Guy

    YEAH! Anger Management is UP this week in viewers!

    I don’t care what anybody thinks Anger Management is the funniest comedy on TV right now in my opinion. It’s starting to become super underrated after starting out with huge hype.

    Damn I wanted TNA to be up this week they’ve been doing so well in their quality compared to the WWE. What did Bellator do with King Mo?

  • r0ckmypants

    @Sally – While I’m sure Bravo wishes Kathy were performing better, they cut costs considerably from season one to two. I can’t imagine they’re all that disappointed in its performance, especially with The Millionaire Matchmaker utterly bombing right now.

  • Jase

    @Moose- You’re dead on about SUITS. It got really insipid after the 2nd/3rd episode that I stopped watching altogether. However, I did catch the tail end of Thurs. episode (I had no idea it was the winter finale) and could barely get through it. Hopefully, things improve when returns in the summer.

  • Michael

    King of the Nerds sounded like a good concept, yet the show is awful. Half of the “nerds” aren’t nerds at all! The ones who one might identify with the concept of a “nerd” have already been voted off-unfortunately show comes off as some sort of crappy Real World clone

  • jackieO

    SUITS is an awesome show and has the best writing team.
