    According to The Futon Critic, Brad World did better than Rachel Zoe; both had 0.3 in the demo, but Brad had more viewers. This theme night is a bit of a bust for Bravo.

  • Jon

    are there really almost 8 million homes watching a single episode of Duck Dynasty???

  • Rooney72

    Glad that The Americans has been renewed. It’s a well written show with a unique premise and were really enjloying it. Between that and Justified, FX has a great Tuesday-Wednesday punch.

  • Moose

    I have watched every episode of The Americans. It isn’t a bad show, but I think they are going to have to up the pace a ton in order for it to maintain its audience.

    They are also going to have to increase the intelligence of some of the characters. It is amazing to me that Phillip has not blown his cover long before now. He doesn’t seem to be the sharpest tool in the shed. Once his loyalty was put into question, he should have been smart enough to know that Claudia was never going to believe anything he had to say. Phillip would also has to know that he can’t trust his wife Elizabeth.

  • PurpleDrazi

    I really like The Americans too but I wish they would cut back just a tad on the relationship stuff. I realize that it is important to the story and the intent is to show the extreme toll being a deep cover spy takes on these people mentally and emotionally but…they are straying into soap opera territory.

    They need to add more of the intense cat-and-mouse spy stuff and a little less of the is my spouse cheating on me stuff.

    That being said, I’m glad to know it’s already renewed. A .6 rating would have me a bit concerned otherwise.

  • Nate

    I’ve watched Southland since season one but I have to say the last couple of episodes have left me wondering if it would be so bad if it were cancelled. They have ruined Detective Lydia Adams. One of the things I always liked about her character is that she didn’t have kids or a husband and the writer’s found other ways of making her interesting. Having her be a Mom this season was a hard left turn into convention. I also didn’t like how Sammy just watched that dog kill a suspect in the most recent episode.

    The only characters the writer’s haven’t ruined this season are Dewey and Cooper.

  • E Brown

    I’m sorry, I can’t watch Duck Dynasty.

    I understand it’s a funny, warm show for those who appreciate that… but it is trying to make small town Louisiana seem like this great place.

    Monroe, LA (and West Monroe) are by far some of the most racist and segregated towns in America by far. Maybe those guys on the show are not, but showing the exceptions to the norm does not change the norm.

    With that said… Workaholics is doing well and I hope it gets even better for Season 4!
