    “WHAT THE HELL IS DUCK DYNASTY?”

    Do you live in a cave?

  • teeveegirl

    IS that number good or bad for Boston’s Finest?

  • Baaa!

    Yuck Die Nasty yet another show that proves P.T. Barnum business model is alive and well.

  • s0303

    happy the americans raised…i know it’s been renewed, but last weeks 0.5 was discouraging…

  • Shepherd

    Yay! I called DD’s 3.6. :)

    Two Duck Dynasty repeats beat two BBT repeats, that’s the biggest news of the night imo.

    Psych did pretty well at .9 and no.3 original show of the night (DD aired 2 new episodes.) I still don’t understand why USA insists on trying to kill this great show.

    The Americans did better, and not too bad overall. Maybe FX can find a better slot for it next season.

    Southland did a little better, but still not very good. It will be interesting to see whether this show gets another season. It’s obvious that they’ve already cut the budget to ‘bare bones’ territory.

    The Vikings repeat did well, and better than the bible repeat despite the late and worse time slot; that’s good news.

    WC finale repeated alright, but I wish more folks had decided to watch Tuesday. I guess people heard that things really piked up for the last 10 minutes of what many felt was a disappointing half season.

  • James

    Some people don’t seem to realize that the reason the Viking rerun did so good is because it was aired on A&E after Duck Dynasty. History channel and A&E are owned by the same parent company.

  • THE OLD MAN

    Really glad the Dynasty didn’t quack as loud as it did last week

    Go NCIS 0.8 @ 8:00 & 1.3-1.4 TBBT 9-11:00!

    Southland holding steady w/ 0.5

  • kbmv

    Lol @ Duck Dynasty. I can’t believe it’s freakin huge. I have never actually watched it but the name just seems like it’s hillbilly trash.

  • brandojames

    That was a smart move to air a repeat of Viking after Duck Dynasty.

    Glad Psych didn’t drop too much. Wonder if next weeks guest star will raise the ratings. Great episode last night.

  • Sab G

    Glad to see The Americans is hanging in there. It’s such a great show. The writing and acting is top notch. Relieved it’s on FX, so will get a chance to build its audience.

  • Ram510

    Nice to see Southland up this week. For Southland to only lose .2 at for its midnight repeat shows that people still want to watch but there’s south on at that hour, it tough.

    And I’m te only one who still looks for Southland on Tuesdays or am I the only one who can’t shake the habit?

  • Ram510

    @ Paris

    I asked the same question yesterday, what is duck dynasty? Guess I’m not too into the “reality” (I’m guessing its reality) stuff

  • DW

    duck dynasty is a show about this family that makes duck callers , they wouldn’t be on except they have this ” crazy uncle” that says goofy things. wow thrilling television.

  • JR

    Count me as another person who had no idea what “Duck Dynasty” was until it came back to massive ratings last week. I don’t know anyone who watches the show and I have no desire to watch it either but to each his own, and good for A&E.

  • r0ckmypants

    Not terrible for Brad World… from what I remember, that’s about what it was doing by the end of last season, despite starting much higher. Rachel Zoe is right where the show was last year too. But Bravo should have ordered a second season of Mad Fashion rather than picking up Dukes of Melrose; that 0.2 is too low.

  • Kike Kikerson

    Whoever watches Duck Dynasty should be shot. People like you that ruin GOOD TV for the rest of us.

  • panda22

    Thank the gods!….a solid rise for Southland in viewers, 1.5m and 0.5 demo are its normal numbers, hopefully it stays the same…but I’m not sure how to read the fact Ben Mckenzie has lined up a new pilot….wtf?

    :(

  • Shaun

    Bad numbers for Southland?? Canceled after this season?

  • Shawn and Gus

    Go psych! Hopegully we’ll get a back 8 for the final season.
