  • Not quite the 24 Teen Wolf got but still really happy.

    Plus that show only got 24 because of the tax incentive scheme.

  • 2.2 million viewers and a 2.2 share? Literally EVERY SINGLE metered viewer of this show is in the demo. Not surprising, but very interesting. Never seen that before.

  • What season 3? this show was crap from day one, didnt think it would make it past the first episode. I cant believe how low TV is these days, and how brainless we as TV audiences have become.

  • I watched season 1 last month because of all the good things I heard, you know, with the show being a “critical darling” and all. It’s really not that good. Average at best. And not that funny at all. Annoying at times.
