    @ Mr Mikey

    Yes, I’m serious. Last night’s ep was not as good as the others but made serious progression toward the season’s conclusion. The Coven will all get together & fight the “supreme” fight in more ways than one.

    This is the best season so far with so many storylines & top-notch acting by just about the entire case (Lange, Bates & Basset forerunners of course) + all the technical aspects of the show have been exceptional as well.

    Again I say–A TRULY GREAT SHOW!! BRING ON THE AWARDS!!

  • Timmy G

    Good for Melissa and Joey and Baby Daddy. Surprised though that there’s hardy any overlap between them and the ABC comedies. They’ll both be on air for at least a few more seasons.

  • Mario

    @Amanda Kondolojy can pass me some ratings of Disney? please

  • Terry

    “Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.” -Albert Einstein

    He was thinking about the Ducky Dynasty audience when he said that.

    Also, does anyone think FX will rethink this stupid schedule they have AHS on next year? Run the show Late Spetember/Early October – December. Don’t get me wrong, I *love* this season but obviously the extended run (a four week break? Really?) has hurt it, no?

  • iSayso

    WTF? Every week of AHS:C has been engaging and certainly clobbered it again last night. Mighty Axeman swings for all the glory and delivers with all the gusto of a seasoned craftsman. What a thing of beauty: a boardroom full of corporate carnage. Take this act to Wallstreet . . . . . NOW!

  • Terry

    @iSayso

    Agreed! Even if you didn’t like the story line anyone should be able to tune in and appreciate the absolute clinic Jessica Lange is putting on! Bassett, Bates and the rest of the supporting cast too. Not one instance where I’ve thought “ohh that was bad acting” all season. Totally brilliant.

  • brandojames

    Bad ratings for Psych. Down from last week. Hopefully it can rebound. I don’t think USA will cancel it at this point.

  • JOE

    Man….Modern Family is low, I keep reading how it’s a hit in syndication but an 0.6 is not in any ways a hit. I mean c’mon, a Friends repeat at 11pm tied its 8pm show, that to me says “Loser”

  • baja7475

    Thanks Amanda!

  • Kush

    No UFC? Wow. They have really over saturated things so no surprise.

  • Bee

    american horror story is suffering from FX’s DUMB schedule. this happened last year too. why on earth is it not aired entirely in the fall!? a one month break for 4 final episodes really messes up the buzz. not only is running continuously better for ratings, it would also help the show at the golden globe and SAG awards to have more episodes aired while voting happens rather than just 2/3 of a season.

  • THE OLD MAN

    @ Terry
    @ Bee

    I can only think it’s one of two things–it just may be a bit much for the holidays (like it’s not exactly a Hallmark Christmas movie) -or- the Nets do the same & they’re just following suit.

    I’m mostly opting for the latter, myself.

  • guy

    I gave up on AHS 3 weeks ago. Seems I am not alone.

    The new DD didn’t seem to hurt RW. Looks like RW kept it’s audience, maybe even bettered last week?

  • Every

    Thanks @Amanda

  • John Black

    I pray to the fake reality show gods that Duck Debacle loses more and more and more and more viewers this year and declines to badly that A & E is forced to retire the series……used to like these folks til I learned its all a set up, the boys were once clean up and preppy, and grew beards and went to A & E (since they became rich over a stupid lame duck call, Oh God) and A & E bought into this nonsense….then the Bible thumping patriarch who has committed more sins than the average sinner compares gay men to beastiality, and then talks bad about blacks, and THEN says adult men should marry 16 year old underage girls. Hes mentally ill. He really is. The show itself…each episode, is set up by the producers…its mostly all acting. Kay herself is always acting, and is the worst actor on the show God bless her redneck soul. Can’t wait to see this show die a slow death into oblivion. I’ll be running out into the streets and going QUACK QUACK the Duck Debacle aint coming back!!!

  • Jagger Dagger

    IMHO, AHS is still going great. Better than the stale dramas the broadcast networks keep drecking out now.

  • SP

    Wow…Ducky Dynasty numbers are way down compared to last season’s premiere.

  • SP

    That’s over 3 million less than their Season 4 premiere…not good, to say the least.

  • Evan

    I’m glad the real world went up even if it’s still under 1 million in total viewers. It’s good that it could grow even with duck dynasty coming back. I’m hoping more people watch even if this season might not be the best.

  • Rosie

    Does anyone have the ratings for The Exes and Kirstie?
