    Nice to see Archer up a little. I’m sure it’ll be back over a 1.0 by the finale

  • Jayzel

    NBC tied for 8th place with USA for the 9 pm hour after ABC, CBS, FOX, UNI, TBS, HIST and DISNEY. WOW…

  • Anna Bones Clarkwood

    Wholly crap @ all those .3s, even a couple .2s.

    I’ve been reading these cable 100 threads all season long & normally .3 is about a half dozen shows. I’ve never seen so many .3s in one night.

    Is there a big % drop for cable as well?

    Broadcast was 7%. Though it’s been 7% b4 & no huge cable drop as far as top 100.

    It’s official, Anger Management is bringing down Archer. The movie leading into it got a .6 when new Anger Managements have gotten .4. I bet next season Archer will stand alone, and not only because most of the comedies will be shipped off to FXX.

  • outlawz

    half of the show are ncis

  • Michael1

    Hey, Philly college basketball fans, way to support your team. You got beat by reruns of “American Dad”/”Family Guy.” So much for “Big Five” College Basketball.

  • Jonny C…. formerly Jon

    Legit is extremely lucky it got a second season.

  • Dunce

    Archer is not doing as well with Anger Management as the lead-in looks like they will move all of those comedies to FXX and develop more shows like Anger Management on the main network.

    TNA steady but deserves to be doing way better than the WWE.
