  • The End

    @rob60990

    Would you like us to praise your negativity and lack of understanding of ratings instead of saying The Americans did well, which it did no less?

  • s0303

    happy to see the americans rise…i know it’s been renewed, but last weeks 0.4 was not good…

  • John A

    The Americans is doing ok. I wouldnt over praise it though. Sons of Anarchy and AHS are the only hits on FX.

  • JD

    Oh @rob60990, such a little troll. Americans is doing fine. Rising 33 percent in the demo in a week is pretty good. I’d like the numbers to get to where they used to be, but with a second season renewal and the fact that it’s a brilliant show, I wouldn’t worry about its future.

  • Kyle7

    rob60990 continues to be a pompous windbag but of course he will continue to pathetically rage against any critically-adored or commercially-successful show he doesn’t like.

  • Kyle7

    “Rising 33 percent in the demo in a week is pretty good.”

    Let’s not venture too far into ABC press release territory here. A show can usually only rise 33% if it did rather poorly the week before, and a 0.4 is pretty bad for an established cable network like FX.

  • CC

    Was not expecting the sudden change in tone at the end of Psych last night. Spectacular episode!

  • Mark2

    ABC must be thrilled with the Duck Dynasty ratings

  • Nick

    @peter

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

    Nielsen “asked” TV by the Numbers to not have extensive archives. You can still view old articles by way of the show tags.

    “Nielsen “asked” TV by the Numbers to not have extensive archives. You can still view old articles by way of the show tags.”

    And Google search. ;)

  • Eric

    Southland was just tense last night.

    Best episode yet.

    I’m with everyone else on here that I hope it gets renewed.

  • Jon

    I wonder why Southland ratings are way down this year. Last nights episode was the best episode ever.

  • Ram510

    @reallypeople

    I get what your saying and that’s pretty much the harsh reality. However I think this show can live in with a (mostly) new cast. They already bring in some new people each season anyways. I’m sure if they quality is still there they can put out a few more seasons

  • Samunto

    Duck Dynasty is beating Idol by a biig margin. Imagine if the cats doing the ABC press releases were given this! They would bring their own ketchup and have a field day with this. That press release would end up being nominated for every award in the planet!!

  • Mary

    Duck Dynasty? Really??

    Either people are totally bored and can’t find anything else to watch or else they just have no taste.

  • PurpleDrazi

    The Americans episode was REALLY good! Glad to see the ratings went up even if it was just a tiny bump.

  • r0ckmypants

    @reallypeople – “But seriously people… reality shows are beating it in the demo.”

    The Voice beats everything on Monday nights… so should How I Met Your Mother, Rules of Engagement, 2 Broke Girls, Mike & Molly, The Following, and Bones all be canceled because of that fact?

    Your argument isn’t exactly a sound one.

  • Lyntex

    So agree about Southland epi; it was well written/acted! Wow….

    When I see ratings for reality tv vs. Southland, makes me shake my head. Oh well, hope Southland continues.

  • Nate

    To be honest, I didn’t like the first half of this season of Southland. But Wednesday’s episode was the best of the series so far. If TV were a fair business it would be renewed. It could be done with a mostly new cast, like ER was, but I don’t think TNT will go that route. Sadly, America prefers Duck Dynasty.

  • Michael A

    Still can’t get this past week’s episode of Southland out of my head. Powerful, tragic, one of the best in the series
