  • Cougar Town Forever

    You know the times have changed when Duck Dynasty consistently beats AI.

  • Eric Robinson

    Rise Americans! Rise!

  • EatMorePez

    Years from now when people write articles about Southland being one of the most under appreciated shows of all time, they will point to last night’s episode as one of the best of the entire series.

  • Cory

    How come Nanny at 10:30pm is always in top 100 cable on wednesday?

  • Recollected

    Glad to see The Real World rising week-by-week.

  • John A

    Im really liking Southland again. Of course its getting canned when its getting good again.

  • Mike

    Come on tnt give us a 10 episode final season of southland…….,.

  • Meanie

    The Dynasty Still Continue To Dominate. Duck Dynasty Made The List 15 times My God.

    The Americans Doing Decent.
    Real World Did Okay I Guess For Whatever Season It Is In.

    Lol At Most Of This List Being Reruns & Syndicated Shows.

  • rob60990

    The Americans continues to do horribly but of course thei fans will praise its miniscule pathetic gain.

  • peter

    Where are the tags?

    And why do the categories on this website (daily, weekly, network vs network,…) only include the last few articles?

  • Bee

    yay for the americans! it’s only a 0.6, but considering last week was a 0.4 and things generally seeemed to be down on cable this week, any improvement is good.

  • DenverDean

    @Mike – Forget “final” season. Southland is a show that can continue for years, but constantly bringing in new officers, detectives, etc. to keep budgets down. The key is 10 episode format – very different than 16 or 22 – like Lucy Liu’s run last season. It’s hard to believe this quality show has only produced 43 episodes after five seasons. C’mon TNT, keep it going.

  • Watch TNA Tonight on SPIKE @ 8/7c

    Good to see the beginning of the fad Duck Dynasty declining now.

  • Watch TNA Tonight on SPIKE @ 8/7c

    @ DenverDean

    I agree SouthLAnd is the type of show that can keep continuing for a long time and TNT really needs to give a 22+ episode order for the next season and just keep it going.

  • snoot

    Duck Dynasty continues it’s domination. Haters continue to make me chuckle. WWE > TNA

  • John A

    Most of the Southland Cast are moving on. It wont be renewed sadly.

  • Ram510

    Southland was really awesome last night! My only issue with the episode is that even with my tv blaring I couldn’t understand what they were saying sometimes (Cooper and his partner). Still an outstanding episode!

    I agree with other Southland is the type of show and could lie on for a long time like ER, just keep bringing on new officers. Southland is already kind of set up like that (we all remember how many partner Lydia went through). TNT should renew this show, revamp the show and bring it back in summer

  • Bill

    I love South LAnd, hopefully it gets renewed

  • reallypeople

    I can understand being a fan of SouthLAnd and wanting to see it renewed. But seriously people… reality shows are beating it in the demo. It got within the ballpark of House Hunters on the Demo and lost the viewership total. (Yes, I know the demo counts).

    Given that on a whole, the season average is down in both viewership and demo from last season (it was at borderline awful levels already… ok I’ll be and call it “modest”), shows tend to erode in viewership/demo over time, and the majority of the cast has signed on for “second position” jobs. No exec who wants to continue to be employed will renew SouthLAnd. (Pending some sort of Netflix cost share deal). And, sorry folks, but it won’t be. Sucks I know, but TNT could put a repeat of a show in SouthLAnd’s spot and do almost as well, if not better. We just just enjoy next week’s series finale.

    @rob60990 The Americans is not by any means doing horribly, especially when it is the number two scripted cable program of the night under Psych.
