    @ Elijah….

    “@Torrid …Who cares?”

    I think YOU care and obviously care a LOT :) ….. I like the disguise though ” I am the only person that likes both basketball and hockey..” yeah right! LOL!

  • The End

    @Nick

    I said it was irrelevant to compare both shows. My other point was that basically every network has different expectations for their shows. A 0.6 on one network may be unacceptable but to another it’d be brilliant.

    @Certainly no way you can expect half a dozen seasons right now.

    I don’t think 6 seasons from this show is unrealistic personally. Certainly I’ve been right about virtually all my show predictions here in my time here.

    Let’s just wait and see anyway.

  • Nick

    @Ike – Justified averaged a .92 A18-49 rating in its first season and Archer and Sunny are comedies. Again, it absolutely could gain momentum from this level of performance. It happens. But there just isn’t any recent case of it among FX dramas. Hopefully The Americans breaks the mold.

    @Torrid

    Disguise?
    You can’t comprehend the fact that someone likes more than one sport?
    I love football, soccer, baseball, basketball, hockey, golf, tennis, women’s basketball, and lacrosse. I’m a huge sports junkie. Football is definitely my favorite though.
