    The Middle adjusted up! Whoo!


  2. Destiny

    Good that Lethal Weapon adjusted up, it’s in no danger and should be renewed in due course. Nightmarishly bad for Legion, I think some may have to accept the show is now in danger. It started off OK but now it’s too low.

    Shadowhunters now in the same range as megahits like Famous In Love & Beyond. Yikes.


    • FlopWatch

      Shadowhunters used to be one of the few shows they had that avoided a 0.1 and that wasn’t too long ago too.

      Freeform is completely falling apart.


      • Amaury

        Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, and Freeform should all be receiving the prime time ratings MSNBC and Fox News get with shows like The Rachel Maddow Show, Hannity, and Tucker Carlson Tonight. 😉


      • Destiny

        Agreed, they have nothing of value. I can only assume this opens the door for Siren for a second season if that doesn’t fall apart too.


        • FlopWatch

          Siren was probably going to get it either way, with Beyond and basically the veterans ending one after another gone and FIL now occupying the title of the lowest rated show on the network.


      • Joey

        Shadowhunters is gonna get cancelled after this season I’m calling it. Siren started out strong so I bet that will get renewed. Famous In Love is still a tossup cause even though the ratings were bad Freeform has a very strong relationship with the creator, I. Marlene King.


        • Alan

          Don’t forget Shadowhunters has a Netflix deal. It airs as a Netflix original internationally, it could boost its chances for renewal. Dynasty on the CW has a Netflix deal and it was renewed even with bad ratings.


    • Mitch Salem

      The Legion rating is bad, but remember that FX is in the Noah Hawley business in a big way, so it will likely be given every possible consideration before it’s in danger of going away. (Of course, assuming the Disney deal goes through, it’s impossible to know what the new regime will want to do with X-Men related projects.)


  3. Raiderguy24

    I can’t believe Legion is this low. I see nothing but constant bickering about Hollywood having no new ideas and it’s all Reboot this and Re-do that. Then they create something totally out side of the box and creative and no one watches it…This country ruins talent.


    • Destiny

      I felt the same as you with Mr.Robot. 454k viewers and a 0.19 rating for its third season finale. Arguably one of the finest shows on television. USA Network will get this one across the line for five seasons somehow and it’ll be a magnificent achievement. Just seeing the numbers weekly was so sad.


    • Boom

      People always have short attention spans.


    • Boom

      At least it does well online, saw it in the iTunes top TV episode charts today and it is currently in the top 10, so does this mean that live viewing doesn’t matter much to it and is it still profitable for FX?


  4. KevinY

    I just watched the AMAZING Season Two premiere of Legion so I too am shocked it dropped so much in week two.


  5. Gregg Hummer

    Hannity and Rachel neck and neck, Rosanne still getting 10m plus, great documentry on Andre the Giant, for all us rassling fans.
