    So Bates Motel is still the bigger hit then both these shows ??? :D

    Great numbers for both, but it means Bates will be sticking around for a long time!

  • Owen

    Both numbers in viewers are better then Bates Motel did in s1. Still good numbers voor Bates and for these shows as well

  • Dennis

    @Owen

    Total viwers don’t matter…its the 18-49 demo that matters most, and Bates rated alot better then both series

  • EatMorePez

    1.1 million Adults 18-49 for Longmire is approximately a 0.9 rating.

  • DenverDean

    Not sure A&E cares as much about the demo for Longmire. Just by its nature, it’s going to skew old. It’s well produced – although last night’s premier was one of the weakest. Oh, and Bates Motel rules – hope they reconsider that measly 10-episode S2.

  • Shepherd

    I wish they listed 18-49 demo numbers for The Glades; it makes it hard to compare without them.

  • Bob Jones

    So More People watched Longmire (10 PM) than The Glades (09 PM) – wow!

    I stopped watching A&E after Breakout Kings was cancelled and the Glades sort of became ABC’s Castle with the love story . . .

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  • Eric_Philly

    Just imagine how well these shows would do if they aired reruns from time to time…

  • Dee

    People, please learn the difference between “then” and “than”. How do you expect your comments to be taken seriously when you can’t master something that simple?

    As to the matter at hand, The numbers for Longmire impress me. Personally, I have tried to watch it, but it just puts me to sleep. That’s too bad. On paper, it is just the kind of show I should love.

  • rob60990

    And people think Bates Motel is a hit, lmao

  • Dennis

    @Rob60990

    Bates Motel Averaged a 1.3 in the 18-49 demo
    while longmire premiered with a 0.9

    Bates Motel is most definitly a major hit

  • david

  • Jon
