    @rebecca Psych airs on USA not TBS :)

  • T

    @ John – Or spoken by someone with (gasp!) different opinions and tastes.

  • justsomebody

    I thought the same thing about Duck Dynasty before I watched it. I was wondering what all the hype was about. I got hooked very quickly. Its pretty damn funny.

  • Paleonut

    Always nice to see Supernatural make an appearance (or two!) on this list!

  • Kim

    psych is consistently funny and a great show! They deserve their great ratings!

  • OSUBuckeye4

    I don’t watch Duck Dynasty, but I have nothing against it.

    However, I find it very puzzling that a 2:01 AM showing of it pulled a .7 and beat Workaholics.

    Something had to have been weird with Nielsen ratings. How does a replay of a show at 2 AM beat everything that was on during primetime?

  • mmogaddict

    Nothing says America more than shooting defenseless things like ducks & childern.

  • Bizarro

    Great for Southland, hopefully it will stay up and another season will happen for sure!

  • rooney72

    Big fan of The Americans. People have to discover this show. It’s smart television; you’ll feel better about yourself after you watch it, I promise!

  • karen

    Hey what is this 25 – 54 ratings deal. There are a lot of folks in North america over 54… Dont we watch TV.
    My message is “I LOVE DUCK DYNASTY”

  • karen

    What I love about Duck Dynasty. The only killing is ducks and squirrels and they eat them… there are no dead mutalated bodies, blood and gore, the family is a great example of a positive family life, Phil and Miss Kay are a successful relationship and it shows how much they love each other, the family has a religious background, there is no drinking except iced tea, AND it is really funny. The family has a successful business and they show the real issues that can occur with a family business. Plus they offer a positive option of a loving supportive family and it is unscripted.. they are simply being themselves. What a breath of fresh air.
