    Sure glad CASTLE is doing as well as it has in the ratings. I never miss a show. Hoping Hawaii 5-0 improves.

  • Mickah

    Oh thanks when does futon critic post them?

  • Rich

    Project Runway was amazeballs last night. Good for them.

  • EatMorePez

    Wilfred 0.2 A18-49 411,000 total viewers

    I think the only way it gets another season is if they decide FXX needs some more programming. See also: “Legit”

  • Kari

    Ouch ! H50 numbers are terrible. It is going to kill cbs Fridays.

    I LOVE Wilfred and can’t believe it doesn’t show up on this list. Probably doesn’t bode well for a renewal. Bummer.

    Breaking News:

    Deadline is reporting that TV Land has cancelled Fran Drescher’s series ‘Happily Divorced’ after two seasons.

  • TV Land’s ‘Happily Divorced’ Cancelled

    here will be no third season of Fran Drescher‘s TV Land‘s comedy series Happily Divorced. I’ve learned that the network has decided to end the sitcom, whose last original episode aired in February. Based on Drescher’s real life, Happily Divorced stars The Nanny alumna as a woman who re-enters the dating world after finding out her husband is gay and juggles her relationship with her current boyfriend and ex-husband. Happily Divorced got off to a strong start, with the series premiere drawing 2.4 million viewers in summer 2011. The second season opened with 1.4 million viewers, and its average of 1.5 million clinched a 12-episode back order, bringing the series’ second season to 24 episodes. That final batch of episodes launched to 1.3 million viewers last November. Drescher and Peter Marc Jacobsen, who previously co-created together The Nanny, were the series’ writers/executive producers. Happily Divorced joins fellow TV Land sitcom Retired At 35, which also was cancelled after 3 seasons. The network’s current slate includes flagship Hot In Cleveland, The Exes and The Soul Man, the upcoming Kirstie Alley sitcom Kirstie as well as multi-camera pilot Jennifer Falls starring Jaime Pressly. TV Land also recently fast-tracked Younger, a single-camera comedy from Darren Star.

    Those Graceland numbers are pretty good. I really hope USA renews that show. I’ve been really enjoying it.

    Also, I think USA could use a bit of a line up shake up for next Summer. I think an interesting line up for them could be…

    Tue:
    Suits
    Royal Pains

    Wed:
    *Horizon*
    Graceland

    Thur:
    *The Edge*
    Covert Affairs

  • ateofi

    I can see the usual trolls are back and trashing H50. I can’t see why? It has more viewers than half of the above listed shows, but it skews very young. Plenty of young people under 18 watch it and it is doing decently on Fridays.

  • Kari

    Oh Ateofi, LOL
    Here we go saying H50 skews very young.That is wrong. The remake skews old and that is why the show has been dumped on Fridays. Les Moonves said that in the last TCA, so I want to think he knows what he is talking about. U can go to TVGuide or Deadline andc read his words.
    H50 is easy to trash, read the list, last place, and one episode didn’t even make it.LMAO
    It is doing worse for TNT than other cheapers shows as Castle and Bones. That is what matters.

  • ray

    LOTS OF SURPRISING NUMBERS.

  • Katelyn12

    H50 skews young? On what planet? The show skews older, which is proven by the .2 share of 1.4M. You can do the math as well as I. Not many 18-49 viewers, and pointing this out does not make someone a troll.

  • mindilee

    Here we go again. What is it about H50 that make people want to hate it so much? Don’t like it – don’t watch it, but I appreciate that it has some diversity to it, beautiful scenery and it’s no worse than some of the other stuff people are watching. It all comes down to personal preference. I for one, gave up on Under the Dome after two episodes – that show is more believeable??? And I happen to think Alex CAN act and has more facial expressions than say, Mr. Finch or Mr. Reese!! It’s called being in character folks. Again, don’t like, don’t watch and then you really won’t care how it does on cable or CBS next season will you?

  • THE__DUDE

    Hawaii SUCKS BIG TIME! Worst show on tv.

  • Grace

    mimdilee said “Again, don’t like, don’t watch”

    I think most have followed your advice , check the list, noone is watching.:)
    Alex is called “wooden” for a good reason ;)
    But I give it to you, the scenary is beautiful, but that is all the show has, and after a few episodes u get tired of only watching that.

  • SHERI

    TOTALLY AGREE with Mindilee

    I LOVE 5-0 (as do millions of others)

    The same 3-4 people CONSTANTLY bash the show on this site — it must be unfortunate to have nothing better to do than trash a show that you claim you don’t even watch!

    I too think Alex O is a FANTASTIC actor and I love all of the core 4 actors.

  • Curious

    Why do people care about how Hawaii 5-0 does on TNT? Shouldn’t it only matter how the ratings are on its original channel? Someone explain it to me, please and thank you.
