The first two episodes of this season of Burn Notice tallied nearly identical 5.3 million average viewers and 1.9 adults 18-49 ratings, so last night’s slip to 4.247 million viewers and a 1.7 adults 18-49 rating is a bit surprising, but shouldn’t worry anyone about the show’s future.

Although I have no idea what FX’s ratings threshold for its new animated show Archer is, its continuing ratings decline seems destined to test it. Last night it fell to just 622,000 average viewers and a 0.4 rating for adults 18-49. As they say, the trend is not Archer’s friend.
