    Less competition from broadcast at 10pm helped Southland this week. It wont be renewed anyway.

  • John A

    Lol Americans down with 0 originals on Broadcast new at 10pm.

    Fashion Night by Bravo is flopping… The Rachel Zoe Project only pulled in 850,000 total viewers for the season premier, and now it’s not even listed.

  • Ram510

    So happy for Southland it has been increasing week to week I hope this trend continues

    duck dynasty just dominates everything on wednesdays

  • samurai99

    Nice to see Psych holding steady.

    A&E, I think we need to have an intervention about your Duck Dynasty addiction…

  • Mike

    Duck Dynasty is clean fun, but as with anything — that many reruns is far too many (hello, TNT, you shouldn’t run the Mummy 56 times in a row either).

  • Bee

    GO AWAY DUCK DYNASTY! don’t hurt my ‘nashville’ or ‘the americans’

    no, but seriously. 3.7? W T F!?!?!?

  • Vanquished

    Why is Duck Dynasty popular? Me thinks someone is fudging the Nielsen data…

    Glad for Psych and The Americans.

  • Grey

    I don’t want to insult anybody but I have to b/c its really weird that many people would watch an awful show like Duck Dynasty in those type of numbers like that. The huge hits on cable these last few years have been horrible compared to the 2000s where we actually had legit shows getting huge numbers like Sopranos, Nip/Tuck, Monk, Closer, and a few other shows. There’s clown shows like Walking Dead and Jersey Shore that have gotten some ridiculous numbers for no reason.

  • samurai99

    @Grey

    Mentioning The Sopranos and Monk in the same sentence? I love your taste in television.

  • beached

    Duck Dynasty? Just how low are viewers IQ?

  • David Howell

    Idol still beat Duck Dynasty, but that’s the Wednesday battle nowadays, which is absolutely extraordinary.

    A&E topped the three broadcast networks combined (!) in the 10pm hour…

  • Bryan

    Why are people judging those whose choose to watch Duck Dynasty? This is a free country. This isn’t North Korea where people who “know better” get to tell you what to do. If your show’s not doing well, tough. But, blaming it on IQs is just petty.
