    RIP SWAT, the collapse of this shows ratings is quite something. What happened? How can a moderately successful show go from pulling OK numbers to Ransom on Saturday numbers? Crazy.

      I think it’s pretty expensive too, don’t know how it’s still going this far to be honest? I don’t watch it so I’m assuming it’s just not a good show or it’s on to late?

      In my opinon a primetime show should have more viewers than it’s network daytime dramas and SWAT got less viewers than The Young & The Restless and The Bold & The Beautiful – same with ABC: General Hospital got more viewers in the afternoon than For Life in the evening, that’s a no-go for For Life!
