    No surprise they are the best channel.

  • Daniel

    @chrono I don’t think, showtime is better.

  • Weez

    @ Daniel

    Uh, no. Showtime isn’t even currently better than AMC (though after Breaking Bad and Mad Men finish up…), and it’s definitely not better than (or even close to) either FX or HBO.

  • TimsDale4ever

    CANDELABRA deserved all their awards — a stunning film!

  • Daniel

    @Weez More people agree with you about HBO and Showtime. I just like Showtime more. I think most people would rather have Showtime than FX and AMC. What shows do you watch on FX? Why do subscribers keep increasing for Showtime?

  • Jagger Dagger

    “Mea Maxima Culpa: Silence in the House of God” was an amazing documentary. Glad it won.

    I still will watch some comedies on the broadcast networks, but hour long dramas are starting to be almost always on HBO, FX and AMC now (I don’t have Showtime).

    People seem to complain that HBO and other cable/pay cable series don’t have enough episodes per season, but as for me I think I would rather watch quality instead of quantity.

  • karin

    Showtime is better by far,now ..
    Miniseries awards seriously,who cares? a HBO’s gift,seriously?
    HBO needs to find new shows, asap,so great a few years ago..
    No more Candelabr,plz

    I used to want Showtime more than HBO but not anymore. With Game of Thrones I would give all the pay channels as long as I get to keep HBO and Game of Thrones.

    Showtime has gone downhill in recent years. I did love Ray Donovan but it is not enough to make me want to keep the channel over others. In fact I would rather have Strike Back and Banshee on Cinemax over Showtime.
