    Strong finish for Snowpiercer. With the second season all but filmed I’d imagine at some point this year TNT will offer at least a release date or a third season renewal. They have a hit on their hands.


    • Destiny

      Could also see more than a single season for Perry Mason, along with The Outsider. It’d just take time to make that happen.


    • Raiderguy

      Yeah I read they already have a 3rd Season story planned out and since the 2nd season is practically done, I don’t see why TNT wouldn’t just renew it for a 3rd to give it’s audience confidence in the show to stick around.

    Any numbers for “Mighty Trains” (9pm) or the penultimate “Mystic Britain” (8pm) both Smithsonian ?
