    Where is Guerilla on Showtime?


  2. Destiny

    Those White Princess numbers are mostly irrelevant. It’s a one and done series and won’t be renewed. I can’t see them also affecting any future adaptions of the authors work. Badlands, Leftovers, Feud, Girls did OK.


  3. brad

    Wow, did Top Gear really fall off the chart, or do you have numbers for it?


  4. superstorm

    Into the Badlands may be canceled.


    • Destiny

      Not with a 0.5 rating it won’t. Repeat that again if it drops a few tenths more and I’ll agree with you.


    • FlopWatch

      Not really, they’ve renewed shows getting 0.1s like Turn and Halt and Catch Fire, both of have gotten a 4th and final season.


      • Destiny

        I wonder if they will renew The Son? I don’t care about the show, just it attracts such an old audience and you’ve said AMC have history of renewing 0.1s.
