    Farewell The Fosters, unlike most Freeform shows you went out with respectable numbers. Yikes Queen Sugar, I saw that coming as I called it, along with Six and Colony bubble shows and they still are. Not bad for The Expanse, it’s a nominal drop, nothing serious. Only three more weeks until it concludes on Syfy and makes its move to a home that will appreciate it.


    • FlopWatch

      Even its regular numbers were a struggle for most of the other Freeform shows tbh, that’s how low they sunk.


      • Destiny

        Agreed. I think the fans, cast and everyone attached to the show can be happy with last nights numbers. It was never going to get a notable boost, but it did perform very well over three days and remained stable. That counts for something.


    • ChrisM

      Do you think those currently watching The Expanse, and do not have an Amazon Prime account, will sign up to continue watching it including yourself, if not already? Along with that, we won’t really know how well it will do there unless Amazon releases viewer streaming numbers, right? Will Amazon be carrying the previous seasons ’cause that would help new viewers. Otherwise, like myself, people could just rent the DVDs through Netflix even if having to wait for seasons 3 then 4.


      • Destiny

        Absolutely. I have little doubt that with the right promotion The Expanse will increase its popularity exponentially. The show has never realized its full potential on Syfy because it has never been properly promoted. It has simply been left up to the fans/cast/anyone else who cares to drum up interest in the show on social media.

        And you’re right that streaming providers never release their numbers, people generally guess them. But when the show gets renewed for a fifth season in the future you can consider it as having done well enough. The same applies for any show on a streaming platform.


  2. Russell

    Yikes at The Split. I wonder if it’ll get canceled.


    • Mitch Salem

      It’s already been renewed in the UK for a 2nd season. It would seem crazy for Sundance to renew at this level of ratings, but they’re probably getting it for relative pennies, so a renewal isn’t impossible.


  3. Tristan

    Expected Archer to see a slight increase since this was the 100th episode; 289k isn’t too good, even for FXX.


  4. Sasha

    How low will Queen Sugar go? I can see why the ratings are tanking. They seem to think all viewers wanna see kneeling for the flag and White Officers beating black young men. We get enough of that on the news daily. I for one am sick of it. I tune on my tv to be entertained and escape the problems of the world. If I wanted a lesson I would go home to my mom. I hope the rating continue to fall until they get the point.


    • Xavier Smart

      Relax, Roseanne. Everything is low, or have you not noticed? That is because of the NBA Finals.
