    Do you have ‘Deutschland 89 (Sundance TV at 11PM and 12AM)’ first two episodes ratings, please? Thanks!


  2. Augus

    ‘Death in Paradise (Ovation at 7PM)’ season three premiere ratings, please? Thanks!


  3. Destiny

    Sort of wondering how Superstore will rate what with America Ferrera leaving the show next week? If you lose your biggest star you can also expect to lose viewers too.


    • Bruce

      This doesn’t say much for the writing, huh?


      • Destiny

        Probably says more about NBC than anything though a lot of networks are guilty of doing the same. The show should have been called the final season but instead theyl just milk it without its star until the ratings get laughably bad.

        Wouldn’t put it past NBC to try The Blacklist without James Spader if he ever wanted out.
