    Loved Baby Daddy!!! Can’t wait for Season 3!!

    “Duck Dynasty has become the Walking Dead in terms of a cable series becoming a beast in the ratings over a few seasons.”

    Does that mean that A&E will air “Talking Duck” on Wednedsays @ 11:00 pm?

  • Wright

    I’m surprised about all the negative comments concerning The Bridge-it’s a great show. Good for Baby Daddy and Melissa & Joey.

  • moraliste

    Re Futurama: For somebody who works part-time at home, there are just too many Futuramas on Comedy Central. There really weren’t that many of them produced compared to Family Guy or South Park, and the show suffers from repetition of the same few episodes. It also seems both a little younger and a little nerdier than those other two peers. But at its best its a show with both a brain and a heart and just another example, like the only two decent dramas on basic cable, Breaking Bad and Mad Men,( three counting Damages, which airs on AUD on DirectTV) of quality lasting briefly relative to mediocrity ( Law and Order, CSI, Grey’s Anatomy, et al.)

  • Steve

    Great ratings for Hot In Cleveland shows.

  • bluetahoe

    The Bridge a great show gets an 0.5. Duck Dynasty a brainless show gets 4.6.
    The dumbing down of America continues…….

  • Mariana

    The bridge is so great I don’t know why people aren’t watching I used to dislike Diane Krugger and now she’s my favorite I love the atmosphere of the show it’s real TV. That America should be watching.

  • Amy

    johnhelvete, thanks for the info! I just don’t think channels/advertisers care at all about the DVR ratings. I know that The Bridge set some kind of records in terms of DVR ratings. But unfortunately, ultimately, ratings truly only matter for when the episode actually airs. And the ratings for The Bridge are pretty much identical to The Americans. And as you’ve said, The Americans dropped in ratings as the episodes went on. I think what helped The Americans was the UK had already bought rights to season 2 of the show before the pilot episode already aired. So FX had further reason to renew the show.

    I don’t know. The delay in the renewal for The Bridge seems strange to me. The ratings are okay for it, but they are not excellent. However, the critics and the network seem to like the show a lot. The actors are great. The storyline is interesting.

  • daviddavid

    Mellissa and Joey and baby daddy did great for the fineles. I wish they goth these ratings for the season average.

  • Cliff Macke

    Great Night for Hot in Clevland fans as both
    New shows did well. Bring on Season 5
    In December.

  • Nik
