    I wonder if somehow got #s will go down with many people angry over what happened. I’ll still watch.

    • Leigh says:

      I think they’ll actually go up, the buzz has been through the roof and that makes people curious. Besides, it’s only one episode left, ya gotta watch just to see what could happen next!

      • Emily says:

        Yeah, outrage covered my FB newsfeed, and a friend who doesn’t watch just asked me what it was all about because it was all over theirs too. Curiosity piqued.

        • TDS-Matt says:

          The same sort of outrage happened at the end of season one when Sean Bean died. Too many “I’m done with this show!” comments to count. But the ratings spiked for the finale.

          • Lord Fakington says:

            Wait…people were surprised that Sean Bean died? Have these people ever seen Sean Bean before?

  2. Midori says:

    Can someone explain to me how Angry Management got a second season? I understand it was a 90 episode all or nothing, we will make money on the syndication, deal but the ratings for the first 10 episodes were horrible and dropping.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      That is why they’re trying some out on Fox, to (hopefully) jack up the numbers/awareness for FX broadcasts.

    The violence realism has gone way up on Revolution. The first half of the series had bloodless death. Slash the red shirts they would topple over like the imaginary deaths of 8 year old boys.

    Last night, blood, blood and more blood. I wonder if this is the reason Revolution’s rating is holding on.

    Revolution’s finale was awesome and GOT’s ‘Rains of Castomere’ episode still makes my blood pump!! Its a good time to be a tv fan!
