    When will FX realize that Anger Management needs to get cancelled?

  • rob60990

    “Is FX happy with those numbers for Anger Management?”

    Definitely not but they’re stuck with it.

  • Daw Johnson

    “When will FX realize that Anger Management needs to get cancelled?”

    I’m not sure there is an “out” clause. So since they have to pay for the episodes, they can air them and get SOME money back in ad revenue…or they could shelf the show and get zero. Makes sense to air it.

    Also – happy to see Newsreaders doing good numbers. Was always disappointed by the Newsreaders editions of Childrens Hospital, but the stand-alone show is really funny.

  • Ram510

    I can’t believe Archer had all those viewers and not above a 1.0.

    And wow did Ridiculousness really rebound

  • DK745

    No ratings for Nathan For You on Comedy Central?

  • DW

    so the nation went with an AD repeat over a new ep of archer and yes i know they tied but tie go to the one with the most viewers. Imo. :)

  • Jared

    Anger Management isn’t even half way through the 90 episode order so these ratings would actually seem pretty stable compared to what the might be months from now.

  • steve sanders

    Comic book men and freak show did’nt even crack the top 100,these shows are crap,and the only ratings cbm ever got was from amc making people sit through the first 20 to see a previeew of next walking dead last year.

  • Aniin

    Drake and Josh repeats doing better than originals of almost everything on Nick except Nicktoons, Ha!!

  • John Furst

    What happened to AFTER LATELY? The 2nd season had record setting ratings. Why can’t I find ANY AFTER LATELY ratings for this 3rd season? Does anyone know how they are doing?

  • s0303

    anger management was only 0.1 lower than the americans the night before, so i’m guessing fx isn’t too upset over it…

  • Shepherd

    I was hoping that Archer would rebound a bit.

    @MichaelChickless

    Is FX happy with those numbers for Anger Management?

    Does it matter? AM will air all 90 episodes, no question.

  • iMember

    Looking forward to KING OF THE NERD’s second season next year!

  • TheHafk

    Also wish there were Nathan For You numbers.

  • Ram510

    I don’t see why the dont double up on the Anger Management episodes and get it over with

  • Elijah

    Didn’t Wilfred get like a ton of .3’s or something and get renewed?

    I know Louie gets really low ratings but if I remember right that show is extremely dirt cheap to produce.

  • Greg

    @Elijah

    Not only Wilfred, but also Louie, The League and Legit. These ratings are only lower than Always Sunny and Archer, so FX must be okay with Anger Management’s performance.

  • brandojames

    Glad Newsreaders is getting solid ratings. The show is really good. I like it more than Children’s Hospital. Plus having Ray Wise at the end of every episode is a great great thing.
