How high can it go? A&E's Duck Dynasty hit another series high with its one hour finale nabbing 9.63 million viewers and 4.3 demo. It's amazing how quickly a show can grow these days. If you recall, Duck Dynasty did not become a hit series until its second season. A repeat of American Hoggers directly after the finale was seen by 3.28 million viewers and 1.5 demo, higher than its normal airings on Tuesday nights.
Over on TNT, the late NBA playoff game (which began after 930) scored 4.32 million viewers and 2.0 demo, good enough for second place on cable.
The long-running USA series Psych totaled 2.46 million viewers and 0.8 demo, in line with previous performances this season. Various reports say next season (the shows eighth) will be the final season.
MTV's Real World: Portland continues its lower-than-usual run with 890,000 viewers and 0.6 demo. How many seasons does this show have left in it? My guess: not many.
The show may be critically acclaimed, but The Americans isn't being watched by many Americans. The most recent episode tallied 1.49 million viewers and 0.5 demo. The show has already been renewed for a second season, but with ratings like these, a third season seems unlikely.
For all you Castle fans, repeats of your show on TNT performed as follows: 1.23 million/0.4 (5pm) and 1.17 million/0.3 (4pm). The numbers aren't huge, but they certainly aren't awful either.
Amazingly, an encore of Full House, which has been off the air since 1995, put up 960,000 viewers (0.4 demo) at 6am and 1.03 million viewers (0.4 demo) at 630am on Nickelodeon. After all these years, the show seems to have found a new audience.
