    Outlander has hit a series high viewer rating for four episodes out of five so far this season and has shown a small growth for three consecutive episodes. At this rate, Starz will give the show a season five(Maybe six?) before season four airs next year. Maybe the show will be so successful for Gabaldon that she won’t be able to write her novels quick enough.


    • FlopWatch

      They’ll just have to pull a GoT in that regard.


      • Destiny

        Yep, as Season four will cover The Drums of Autumn(Book 4). If they give it another two season renewal that will cover up to A Breath of Snow and Ashes(Book 6), she’ll have two books left, and averages a book every four-five years. Maybe I’m being overly optimistic that the show will continue to do amazing for Starz that it’ll reach that point lol.


  2. Marius

    The Robot Chicken TWD special was just great, deserving ratings.
    Last Ship finale also great, rating should’ve been like in a couple of years ago

    Numbers for Survivor’s Remorse?
