  • FringeFan

    According to The Futon Critic

    Anger Management got a 0.638 million viewers with .3 18-49

  • glover

    WOW! this is very pathetic for Anger Management. What a massive failure. And they still have more than 80 new episodes to air. This is going to hit zero.

  • Columbo

    TNA’s ratings are pathetic. Get old man Hogan out of there already.

  • CBSviewer

    Supernatural reruns in syndication get higher ratings than originals of Nikita :)

  • John Nepovietz

    At what point does TX just bite the bullet and pull the plug on Anger Management? As FRINGEFAN said, the latest show pulled in 0.638 million viewers with .3 18-49 demo. For Gods Sake, a repeat of the SquidBillies at 1:00 in the morning pulled in 1.01 and .04, CHARMED at 8:00 AM drew 0.76 and 0.3. Can you imagine being a FOX affiliate who was strong armed to buy all 100 episodes at big bucks and now will have to show them as REPEATS for years to come? FAMILY GUY REPEATS are drawing over 6 times the audience back to back at 11:00 and 11:30PM.

    Sorry to say it, but I do believe that Charlie Sheen’s days as a TV force to be reconed with are long gone. The show is bad, he’s indifferent about anything but the money, and they’re resorting to “stunt casting” – drug addicted former child stars and NASCAR racers. Good luck with that.

    FX made a truly idiot move to reup for 90 episodes when the numbers where already falling from episode 1 to episode 10, What.Were.They.THinking? On the bright side, FX only has 80 Episodes left to produce. LOL

    Just a little more on Charlie Sheen’s ANger Management. Thanks to THE FULTON CRITIC for publishing these. First quarter 2013 rating average: Anger Management – 1.25 million viewers (0.722 adults 18-49, 0.6 rating. I am assuming that these are for first run, and not repeats.

    And the ratings are dropping like a stone since then: These are rating since 4/2 and only for total viewership first run showings:
    Episode 02-11: Thursday, 04/04/13 . . . 1.02 million
    Episode 02-12: Thursday, 04/11/13 . . . 1.25 million
    Episode 02-13: Thursday, 04/18/13 . . . 1.30 million
    Episode 02-14: Thursday, 04/18/13 . . . 1.14 million
    Episode 02-15: Thursday, 04/25/13 . . . 0.68 million
    Episode 02-16: Thursday, 05/01/13 . . . 0.95 million
    Episode 02-17: Thursday, 05/09/13 . . . 1.13 million

    And now for reasons unknow, FOX is going to show four episodes on broadcast network? Either a brilliant move, or the final nail in the coffin.
