    And once again, Da Vinci’s Demons doesn’t make it to the top 100. Great decision there renewing it, Starz!

  • kbmv

    Too bad the Bulls have too many cowards on their team that are too scared to play. Now the series is boring and the Heat are dominating. Derrick Rose is a coward.

    I’m praying for the miracle that’s it’s going to take to move on in the playoffs. 0:|

    Davinci’s Demons numbers are not great, but they are improving. This is the 2nd straight week where it has grown in total viewers.

  • Mike

    The only show I watch on Friday nights is Maron on IFC (i must really be the only one).Denis Leary & a dead possum=some great laughs for me.
