    What’s with the sudden change in HLN’s ratings? Finally making the list.

  • The End

    FX won’t halt production on Anger Management, this was always a long term project for the network and not something they expected an instant return on. It won’t get beyond Episode 100 though.

  • Jon

    Nobody cares about the NHL playoffs do they?

  • Matt

    Oof. 3.1M watching the playoffs at the same time. Not bad for a network that’s available to 21M less households than ESPN…

    Hell, taking that into account, they barely did less viewers than the WCFs for the NBA, and that’s the third round vs. the NHL’s second.

  • r0ckmypants

    @Jon – NHL tends to be heavily localized. My family is a huge NHL family, and they never watch any of the games in the Western conference. They’ll watch Boston, New York, or the Pennsylvania teams, and that’s it. Judging by the ratings, I would think this type of thinking is nearly universal amongst hockey fans.

  • Oliver

    The Anger Management credits are understandable if you break it down.

    Lionsgate Studio is the production company, Debmar-Mercury handles syndication sales (owned by Lionsgate), Revolution owns the rights to the Anger Management source material, Estevez-Sheen will be Charlie Sheen, and Evolution Management are Sheen’s agents.

    Lionsgate will pay for production, the rest will be about backend profits. I imagine the show is dirt cheap to produce, with everyone involved deferring payment for a share of the backend.

    I imagine FX isn’t doing so great out of the deal, though. Those ratings are horrible and I bet they’re losing a ton of money on it. The Fox broadcast strikes me as a desperate move. They are only on episode 29 of 100 too. Bet they’re regretting picking it up.

    Thats really bad for Anger Management even with only one original new show on broadcast last night.
