    FX must be kicking themselves about that back-90 for “Anger Management.”

  • Recollected

    Wow. Tabatha Takes Over did good last night!

  • rob60990

    Anger Management still can’t make the list, lmao.

  • Jacob

    What is ADSM exactly?

  • Chad Mueller

    O Brother, Where Art Thou made it! “AMC Movie” on the list

    Zach Stone is a super underrated show. I don’t get how there isn’t that many people watching it.

  • Recollected

    @Jacob – It’s Adult Swim

  • JoshuaCanada

    I’m entertained by the fact that the AMC movie made the list but none of their reality shows have. Have none (besides the episodes following Walking Dead or Breaking Bad) of the reality shows ever made the list? I really think AMC should get rid of their reality shows. They are mostly bad (though I did enjoy the pitch a bit) and all get bad ratings. What’s the point of keeping them?

  • Jacob

    Oh I watch that channel at night :D

  • Ram510

    Now if Men at Work can just make its way back to a 1.0 it’ll be a lock to come back

  • Fake Me Out

    YPFiGtH is a pretty amusing 15 min time waster, glad to see it doing so well.

    And am I seeing right? Is there a reason Anger Management isn’t showing on the list or is it so low it’s not on the list? And if it’s sunk below a 0.3 one wonders if FX has an escape clause in their order and if not, are they crunching the numbers to see if it’d be cheaper to pull the plug and pay the penalty rather than continue with microRatings … I think the show is ok and can’t believe it’s not even hitting a 0.3! :-/

  • Matt

    Great seeing Tabatha Takes Over climbing on the list!

  • The End

    Futon Critic reports this for Anger Management

    Anger Management (9:30) – FX
    0.777 million viewers, #15; 0.414 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating)

  • SoCal

    Pawn Stars moving to Thursday hurt! My DVR didn’t record the new eps either

  • rob60990

    A Two & a Half Men rerun did better than Anger Management. Can’t get more embarrassing than that.

  • chris

    Wow Tabatha did great this week and so good to see Real Housewives Of Orange County rack up almost a million viewers for an 11 minute first-look preview.

  • Anna Bones Clarkwood

    Not trying to be a “fangirl” bu do recall, that Anger MGMT does do well enough in repeats.

    BTW, how many studios/companies pay for it? The credits seems to have more than the usual 1 or 2, like 5 or more.

  • Recollected

    The Show with Vinny (10:00) – MTV
    0.673 million viewers, #18; 0.421 million adults 18-49 (0.3 rating), #11

    Zach Stone Is Gonna Be Famous (10:30) – MTV
    0.397 million viewers, #23; 0.282 million adults 18-49 (0.2 rating), #18

    Since AMC reality series are a topic of discussion:
    Showville (9:00) – AMC
    0.327 million viewers, #24; 0.155 million adults 18-49 (0.1 rating), #23

    Small Town Security (10:00) – AMC
    0.232 million viewers, #25; 0.127 million adults 18-49 (0.1 rating), #24

    @SoCal

    I dont think pawn stars was new last night. I think new episodes start next week

  • Recollected

    @Anna Bones Clarkwood – Debmar-Mercury, Estevez Sheen Productions, Evolution Management, Lionsgate Television and Revolution Studios. Like you said, that is a ton. 0____o

    Fox has booked a four week showcase of AM. Featuring two original episodes – it’s set for Mondays at 9:30/8:30c beginning June 3, replacing repeats of The Mindy Project.

  • Bruce

    NBC must have loved to have Boston vs New York and Chicago vs Detroit in the two early Stanley Cup hockey games. Add NBCSN and CNBC in the 8:00 PM hour (The CNBC game started at 7:00.) and you get a total rating of 1.3 and 3,118,000 viewers. With overtime in New York, that total continued well into the 9:00 PM hour.
