    I don’t really follow Southland’s ratings, but a 0.7 looks pretty good for the show. I think it will return for a 6th season, could be its last though.

  • MichaelChickless

    Totally Psyched!

  • zodd

    Man I hope Southland gets renewed.

  • John A

    Yes Southland beat lose The Americans.

  • msupdate

    Not too bad for The Real World. Ratings are stable this season, up from last season. Certainly not anywhere near the show’s peak ratings several seasons ago, but I don’t even think it deserves those ratings again.

  • John A

    Yes Southland beat Loser The Americans lol.

  • sam

    The soup??

  • John A

    Did TNT promote The Finale much? It going up 2 tenths for its finale is weird. Still wont be renewed. Sucks as the finale wasnt really the best ending.

  • Mon

    I think TNT should renew Southland. It didn’t fall below 0.5 when the competition was full and despite having a horrid lead-in.

  • reallypeople

    R.I.P. SouthLAnd… John A is correct… unfortunately, those numbers ~1.8, ~0.7 demo aren’t going to be strong enough for a show just completing its fifth season. I guess that’s why TNT didn’t issue a press release.

  • Patrick Ausgewahlt

    The O’Reilly Factor has only 8% in the demo. Woah

  • NBC Fan

    Who in the world is watching Duck Dynasty. Is its season ending soon because I think it’s affecting the other 10 p.m. shows?

  • rob60990

    Real World slowly increasing.

    Southland did decent for its finale.

    The Americans steady, a steady flop. :D

  • reallypeople

    @Mon

    The only problem with the “it didn’t fall below 0.5 theory in full competition”… is that it shouldn’t have been that low to begin with. It was already removed away from Tuesday (where people complained that Justified, White Collar, et al tanked its ratings) to a more “friendly” night. Where else would they move it to? Wednesdays didn’t work either. Friday? I doubt it would even make a 0.5 next year on a different night. The masses just aren’t feeling it, sadly. Maybe Netflix will take it on…

  • Ram510

    YES SOUTHLAND!!!!! Too bad it wasnt getting a .7 the whole season.

    I really hope the bring this show back in some way, even if its a new (or mostly new) cast. I think Southland can be one of those shows

  • Brandojames

    Glad to see Paych was up. A very good episode. It was creative and fun.

  • Brandojames

    Wow I meant Psych

  • snoot

    Duck dynasty dominates yet again!!!!!!!

  • Nicholas R.

    That 3.9 for Duck Dynasty ties for their highest rating ever! The first and second episodes of season three also garnered a 3.9. I believe that season three’s finale next week could once again break that record. If they do end up getting a 4.0+ it will be the new highest rated telecast in A&E history! Personally, I love Duck Dynasty.. haha. :)

  • Bradley

    duck dynasty eeeees funny. Good for them
