  • Justified For Liking Justified

    A good solid showing for Justified, despite another horrible lead in. Week after week, Justified doubles the viewers for that awful reality show TUF that comes on before it. FX can’t be happy with the ratings TUF gets now because I remember it getting more viewers in the days of being on Spike TV.

    Sad when The Ultimate Fighter beats a WC season finale. Common Law got those numbers on a Friday night and was cancelled. Good luck

  • Steve

    Horrible numbers for White Collar. I actually watched it live over Justified as well. I thought the episode was pretty decent. Better than most this second half anyway. They left us with another awesome cliffy.

    Good numbers for Justified. Its still steady and kicking ass. I’m so glad we finally got the whole Drew Thompson reveal though. It was getting a little stale while waiting for that.

  • Tee

    TLG/PLL combination is my favorite lineup pairing in the week. I wish TLG did better, I hope it sticks around.

  • Wright

    WC finale was good. I love that show. PLL is predictable. The girls are always chasing the wrong person and letting A lead them around like lost puppies. TLG is my favorite show on ABC Family. The storylines are way better written.

  • Amy

    They need to stop bringing Sara back to WC. She adds nothing to the show. She makes me not want to watch.

  • EVESIX

    Bones is definitly a goner, and it’s about time!…

  • ouzad

    how is THE FACE ratings anybody know

  • Koratta

    ABCF reports they really want to do three new dramas this year, not just two. So do they necessarily have to keep TLG or Bunheads? I can see them keeping TLG, but no way do they keep it after PLL, they’ll launch something new. How will it do without a lead in? Seems hard to understand how they keep Bunheads, except for the relationship with a powerful writer. You would want a chance at her next series for sure.

  • Irish Townie

    JUSTIFIED is the best show on TV…period

  • xwiseguyx

    Thanks for finally printing some numbers for Joe Schmoe… obviously the second time wasn’t a charm but I thought it was a lot of fun to watch…

  • Steve

    I don’t mind Sara at all on White Collar. She grew on me. Besides Neal is a romantic at heart. Thats been true from the beginning in regards to everything with Kate. When they use her well and she a part in whatever scheme then I enjoy the episodes. While this season as been by far the worst… I think most episodes Sara appeared in she was used well. Come on who didn’t love Neal’s coming about 3 grown men not understanding what was going on. It gave me a great chuckle.

    @Irish… I agree so much. I was a late fan to Justified but my god did I not fall in love fast. It’s so well written and always keeps you on your toes and interested. However, I do wonder if they will ever be able to top season 2 which was by far the best.

  • Justified for liking justified

    I agree Irish Townie, Justified is the best show on tv.

    On Direct TV, Cougar Town’s first-run episode on 3/5 had a first-aired date of 2/26 and didn’t record for me. I realized the mistake before the West Coast airing and got it recorded. I then looked at the 3/12 episode and it has a first-aired date of 3/5. I wonder how that can affect the ratings?
