    The Americans against all reruns on broadcast drops this week. :D

  • omabin

    I don’t think the americans will live to see a third season, but who knows. Cable shows grow season to season sometimes.

    Also, what is this duck dinasty show about? it is crazy the numbers it is getting!

  • outlawz

    NCIS doin great all over maybe #1 show in the world this year

  • Mr Mikey

    The Lakers continue to be the NBA’s biggest draw despite them being a bad team.

  • Michael

    Duck Dynasty?!!!! O.o WOW….

  • Ram510

    If TNT doesn’t renew Southland can FX (or apparently FXX) renew it

  • Tyler

    @ rob60990

    Why do you care? There are 200 people who work on that show.

  • kbmv

    @Mr. Mikey

    And no Kobe as well. The Lakers brand is just very popular.

  • MichaelChickless

    Go Psych!

  • Charmed

    What is the appeal of Duck Dynasty? Sounds crap.

  • John A

    Wednesday Cable so boring without Southland.

  • jake

    Duck Dynasty is the new Jersey Shore (talking about ratings), also it’s nice to see Smallville in the list

  • John A

    Nice to see Cold Case and Smallville on the list. And Charmed made the list twice Yay. These shows will never die. And Castle doing well.

  • peter

    Duck Dynasty, Deadliest Catch; Swamp People, Honey Boo Boo…obviously a lot people wanna watch a show about rednecks/blue collars. It is beyond me why networks (broadcast and cable) don’t take the hint and bring us some great scripted shows about these categories of the population. Instead we have more shows about rich/middle class/urban characters.

  • Bob

    Please give drake and Josh numbers.

  • Bee

    omg. a 4.3 for freaking duck dynasty. i hate ratings. it was the finale right?

    and is it just me or does castle do great in syndication? i mean, the show mostly does low 2.0s in originals and on cable it gets 0.3-0.5 in the evening. maybe that’s why it’s so steady this season.

    wish the americans was doing better, but oh well. the renewal is in and that’s all that matters.

  • Holly

    @Bee,

    and is it just me or does castle do great in syndication?

    It’s just you. NCIS getting 0.7 is great. Castle getting 0.4 is just good.

  • Mark Drei

    All the broadcast networks were repeats at 10. No Nashville, Chicago Fire, or CSI to compete against. It was the season finale too. I can’t see it getting any higher. Jersey Show got a small start. It peaked at 9 million viewers and a 4.8 rating. The second to last episode got 2 million and a 1.2. I’m not saying Duck Dynasty will crash and burn soon, but it won’t get any bigger.

  • Lance B.
