    Sunny & The League move networks and still do better than Anger Management. It seems FX has finally learned not rushing to renew The Bridge after renewing losers like Anger Management & The Americans.

    Could not be happier Hawaii 5-0 is a failure in syndication.

  • Mike

    Hmm what about the AMC shows? Owners Manual?

  • Mike

    H50 is a failure in syndication. Of course it is. This is no surprise. This show never was able to get on Mondays the numbers the old CSI Miami was getting. It killed the slot.CBS should had canceled it right there. Once a dud, always a dud. LOL. TNT is paying $2.5 million for a 0.2 demo. LMAO.

    Why does Children’s Hospital routinely make it onto the list, but not NTSF:SD:SUV, even though NTSF regularly has very similar ratings to CH? Is it because they both share a half hour and the two get conflated into one set of ratings? It certainly seems unlikely that NTSF loses a full 80% of CH’s viewership to drop off the list…

  • Damiker

    Does Graceland stand a chance of getting renewed? I recently started watching the show and love it.

  • John A

    Wilfred dropped half its viewers from last week. It must be dead.

  • kari

    Yes, some were right, H50 is getting better, a total winner, TNT should dump all their shows and just air H50 :) :) :):)

  • AriesMatt

    @WRIGHT, this is definitely not the year/season to miss Burn Notice. It’s one of the better ones in recent years.

    Am also curious what will happen when Graceland doesn’t have Burn Notice’s lead-in. I love Graceland and hope that they can pair it with another appropriate show for the (assumed) next season.

    Still no Wilfred? Bummer. Last night’s episode was one of the better ones and had a fantastic cliff-hanger. Would really be a shame if not renewed for another season. Also, Elijah Wood’s acting was particularly good last night.

  • CBSviewer

    Supernatural repeated well :) but Hawaii Five-0 not so much…

  • Dan S

    I’m not holding my breath that Graceland will see a season 2. It’s numbers are borderline & it honestly doesn’t hold my attention the way Suits or White Collar has. Pretty sad TNT doled out so much $$$$ for H50 that’ll have 1 final season on Fridays.

  • Ram510

    Graceland just isn’t that good. If it were on its own it would probably e down to a .5 or worse. As to drop half a ratings point doesn’t show much promise. USA could’ve just left Suits in that time slot after all. USA should just make Graceland a one and done series cause its just not catching on

  • Ram510

    Wow how does Wilfred do worse than Sunny and The League. There is no hope for Wilfred, it’s done and should’ve never made it to see a second season to begin with

  • USAmerica1st

    Burn Notice should be carried on for another season or two. It’s just that good, USA. Graceland is just not measuring up.

  • KevinY

    Graceland is phenomenal!! I like it just as much as White Collar. It better get renewed!

  • Jenny

    I loved Wilfred first season (and enjoyed the original Australian version even more…), but I’m done with it. “Meaningful” and “arty” and “open-ended” is fine, but only if you’re still getting laughs. And this series hasn’t for a long time now. It’s over; not interested anymore (especially after seeing that ridiculous alien/supernatural cliffhanger-cripes).

  • Kate

    Ouch for H50, or should I say Loser 50.
    The show is so bad. Grimm will crash it, LOL

  • jules

    TNT overpaid for H5O, and people love Nathan Fillion.

  • Townies

    charley sheen’s show is awful…not funny

  • TJ

    Burn Notice was sooo good. Sad to see it go.
