    Speaking of The X-Files, I found Chris Carters predictable back peddling about the future of show without Gillian Anderson both predictable and funny. It’s a decision for the studio to make, not him. If Duchovny wants to do more, it’ll be back.


  2. Amaury

    Yay, Hunter Street!


  3. Fred

    Waco rose a bit


  4. Christian

    Versace is so boring. Not surprising the ratings are dropping!


  5. Ryan

    Do you have numbers for ‘Restoration Garage’ (Velocity, 9pm), and two episodes of ‘Great Barrier Reef’ (Smithsonian, 8pm & 9pm)? Thanks!
