  • Dan S

    Mayor Bloomberg needs to ban Duck Dynasty along with those supersized sodas.

  • rob60990

    Terrible for overhyped The Americans. Doing half what hit AHS was doing in the timeslot.

    Quite a gain for Southland. It didn’t have broadcast competition last week either and didn’t get these ratings.

  • Grey

    @ samurai99 “Mentioning The Sopranos and Monk in the same sentence? I love your taste in television.”

    Well at least it wasn’t The Wire and very overrated Community in the same sentence if you know what I mean?

  • Kate

    I don’t get the phenomenon of long haired bearded millionaire men shooting ducks. It’s not funny, but then again there’s another show on network TV that 20 million people watch and they think that’s the greatest TV Show to ever air, when I can name 20 shows off the top of my head in my 45 years of existence that’s better than it also.

  • Oliver

    It seems the ratings of TBS’s TBBT reruns are finally starting to fade (although I suspect there’s considerable demographic overlap with Duck Dynasty).

  • Rebecca

    I bet Psych would do pretty well on network TV. I’d watch it. Instead I have to stream it the day after it airs on TBS. Love that show.

  • Donald

    Regina King deserves an emmy nomination for her performance on Southland last night!

  • Shepherd

    Southland is quietly climbing up in the ratings.

  • Jackson

    Anyone hating on Duck Dynasty has never seen the show. It’s just good, clean fun with better writing and performances than most sitcoms. It deserves all its ratings glory.

  • rob60990

    Duck Dynasty is just a phase like Jersey Shore. It will die a very quick death before we know it.

  • Freddy Arrow

    @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.”

    Less than 4% of the people watch it. I don’t think its very strange. I’ve never seen it, but I hear its pretty funny.

  • T

    Hate to see Americans drop again – absolutely fantastic episode last night, I thought. But last I heard they were still doing well in DVR and they do seem to have strong competition in that time slot from this ridiculous Duck Dynasty. So I hope FX would take that into account. Besides – already renewed!

  • John

    @beached

    “Duck Dynasty? Just how low are viewers IQ?”

    Apparently, you’ve never seen the show. These guys are college educated. It’s family-friendly. There aren’t “bleeps” every 5 seconds. That’s what America wants.

  • John

    @kate

    “I don’t get the phenomenon of long haired bearded millionaire men shooting ducks.”

    Apparently, you’ve never seen the show. They don’t shoot ducks on the show.

    You don’t understand the phenomenon? You can’t understand why Americans are attracted to a family-friendly show that doesn’t have sex, vulgarity and “bleeps” every 5 seconds?

  • John

    @rob

    “Duck Dynasty is just a phase like Jersey Shore.”

    People tuned into Jersey Shore to watch a trainwreck. People tune into Duck Dynasty because it’s family-friendly and it makes you want to hang out with the Robertsons.

  • John

    @T

    “this ridiculous Duck Dynasty.”

    Spoken like someone who has never seen the show.

  • John

    @Gray

    “There’s clown shows like Walking Dead and Jersey Shore that have gotten some ridiculous numbers for no reason.”

    Comparing Duck Dynasty to Jersey Shore? Really? There’s no comparison.

    Maybe Americans are tired of filth and they want family-friendly programming. What a novel idea.

  • Mark

    Great for Southland, though even the scripts seem to be wrapping the series up (at least for some of the characters). Plus the actors are already booking new pilots.

    Maybe they’ll make a movie out of it using the same premise but different actors (oops… End of Watch)

  • Ann

    Really good for Southland. If the ratings keep increasing like that, there will be another season.

  • jrc1978

    I’m going to join in on the Duck Dynasty comments. I USED to be one of the people that never understood the ratings and thought people were stupid for watching it. Over my holiday shutdown (Christmas break) I happened to catch a bunch of them on a marathon because there was nothing else to watch and I was too lazy to push buttons on the remote. Yeah…got hooked in 15 minutes. My wife was making fun of me all day. THEN…she was watching it casually as she was playing on her stupid iphone…now she’s hooked too! LOL We love it! It’s hilarious and they’re very likable people. (…and I’m definitely no reality fanatic) We even have it set up on our DVR.
    P.S. I also love Southland and The Americans. Sorry for the long rant.
