* Frank Darabont’s “Walking Dead” remains the highest-rated scripted show on cable, and has yet to lose to CBS’ “CSI Miami” at 10 p.m. * “Sarah Palin’s Alaska” is falling faster than its star’s approval ratings. Its second episode fell into a four-way tie with “Shake It Up,” “Sister Wives” and “Kendra.” “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” more than doubles Palin’s ratings. The last time we saw a new series plummet this hard may have been with Jeff Dunham’s puppet show on Comedy Central. * “Boardwalk Empire’s” Harrowing antepenultimate season-one episode hit an uptick to cement its status as pay cable’s current top-rated series. * Despite losing its longtime showrunner between this season and last, “Dexter” hit what I believe could be its all-time high in the 18-49 demo. * Fox’s four Sunday cartoons all fell to new season lows.

How they compare to other Fox series: 18-49 finals (prior weeks in parentheses; repeats in gray): 5.0 (4.6) (1.9) (4.9) (2.1) (4.7) (4.6) (5.9) (5.6) (1.7) (1.6) Glee 3.4 (4.0) (3.7) (----) (1.4) (3.6) (3.6) (4.0) (3.8) (4.2) (1.2) House 3.3 (3.4) (3.8) (----) (2.0) (----) (3.4) (4.0) (4.5) (2.4) (2.1) Family Guy 2.9 (3.9) (3.7) (----) (1.7) (----) (3.0) (4.2) (3.7) (2.2) (2.9) The Simpsons 2.7 (2.6) (2.5) (----) (----) (2.6) (2.7) (2.5) (2.7) (----) (1.0) Bones 2.7 (2.5) (----) (2.4) (1.6) (2.5) (2.5) (3.1) (3.1) (----) (----) Raising Hope 2.6 (2.7) (1.4) (----) (----) (3.1) (3.0) (2.9) (2.9) (----) (----) Hell’s Kitchen 2.4 (3.1) (3.0) (----) (1.2) (----) (2.6) (3.1) (3.1) (----) (1.9) Cleveland Show 2.3 (2.5) (2.9) (----) (1.7) (----) (2.5) (3.0) (----) (----) (----) American Dad 1.9 (1.7) (1.8) (----) (----) (2.0) (2.0) (1.9) (2.1) (0.7) (0.8) Fringe 1.8 (1.5) (1.4) (----) (----) (----) (1.3) (1.3) (1.5) (1.3) (----) Cops 1.8 (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) (----) Human Target 1.7 (1.4) (1.5) (----) (----) (----) (1.7) (1.4) (1.6) (1.6) (----) America’s Most Wanted 1.7 (1.9) (1.8) (----) (1.6) (1.9) (1.9) (2.1) (----) (----) (1.6) Lie To Me 0.7 (0.7) (0.8) (0.7) (0.6) (0.8) (0.7) (0.7) (0.9) (0.5) (----) The Good Guys

* “60 Minutes,” following a ballgame, matched its season high. * “Undercover Boss” also rebounded with an episode about a fiftysomething Subway exec and Crayons frontman taking orders from teen managers who looked at him like he was the biggest loser alive. * “CSI Miami,” at the other end of CBS’ primetime lineup, matched its all-time series low.

    Walking Dead,

    by ChocolateJeebus

    getting it's ass handed to it by Family Guy is not STRONG. It's sad. Of course getting level-headed insight from Herc is like getting level-headed insight from a politician, or any other douche with a political ax to grind.

  • Nov. 23, 2010, 10:06 p.m. CST


    by SuperSaiyan2112

    Watching anything McFarlane and enjoying it is lame as well, so don't feel bad for saying "PWNS." You just happen to be a very lame person. It's alright, there are plenty more just like you to join the fun.

    Walking Dead

    by Scoob1978

    Is the the best show on TV right now. The fact that it's pulling a 2.4 when half the people I know don't know what channel AMC is on is amazing not just strong.

  • Nov. 23, 2010, 11:42 p.m. CST


    by Holeman

    It's on cable. Most of the people who make up the "Family Guy" audience are too stupid to hold down jobs and can't afford cable so they have to make do with whatever swill public TV has to offer them.

    by SavageJuicebox

    You mean The brand new hour-long drama series The Walking Dead lost to an animated comedy that has a built in audience? Cracking observation there, Walking Dead should be ashamed. Chalk another one up for people that act like they know things.

    Dexter has been terrible this season

    by MrEkoLetMeLive

    Slow, plodding, boring, and totally uninteresting. Michael C. Hall continues to kick ass in the role, but the show has never lived up to the quality of his performance. Hopefully they'll wrap the show up next season and it'll be its last. They can't drag this concept out much more. How many predicaments can the guy find himself in that he successfully manages to get out of? He's turning into the Jack Bauer of serial killers.

    Fox's Sunday line up was bad last week

    by Redhead_Redemption

    Simpsons was a boring episode that just seemed to repeat the Mr buns is old and sick plotline we've seen before, and it just seemd like a 20 minute leadup to the final joke where his head caved in<P> Cleveland show was kinda Meh too, the fat jokes were good but couldn't hold the episode<P> American Dad was clever and probabaly the only good episode of the night<P> And that brings me to Family Guy's episode - Holy fucking god what a terrible episode, I didn't laugh hard once. They need to stop having a brian central plot carry an episode. Brian is a sidekick at best and he's an unlikable dick, when he's the center of an episode it's just 22 minutes of him fighting some political cause and spouting his non conformist drival. It takes the edge out of family guy when they do that. I did like that they teamed him up with stewie and those were the only funny parts, but the writters need to push brian back into the background and just have him relegated back to sidekick or voice of reason when Peter does something stupid

    Sharpie, the best you're going to get regarding VB numbers

    by Shut the Fuck up Donny

    is when [AS] posts that little weekly ratings bump. <p> I think the TPTB have figured out the viewership of that shows is mostly either online or through DVD purchases, so they don't seem to focus on the weekly numbers too much.

  • Nov. 24, 2010, 8:46 a.m. CST

    American Dad is now the best McFarlane show...

    by Shut the Fuck up Donny

    One of the reasons is that they still make an effort to tell a coherent storyline without breaking into asides (which the Cleveland Show is now already guilty of doing a second season in--but that show's been mostly DOA anyway)... <p> Furthermore, they're still doing a good job of breaking up stories amongst the different characters, and not turning it into the Roger show (yet), which allows some writing flexibility.

  • Nov. 24, 2010, 9:22 a.m. CST

    I agree on American Dad

    by _Venkman

    I've always liked the show the best out of the three

    by Stalkeye

    especially since I am tuned to both TWD and 'Empire.(sons of Anarchy is another good series.)<p>I should have known that the interest for Palin's reality show would drop after the second segment.And on top of that, her precious bristol lost to Jennifer Grey.There is a God, indeed.

  • Nov. 24, 2010, 10:03 a.m. CST


    by veritasses

    is a good show and worth watching but it might be too ambitious for it's own good. The level of difficulty involved in creating that show is undeniably high. But that means it requires extremely talented people, at the top of their game, working in sync each and every episode. The effort is certainly there and there's a lot of talent working on the show but unfortunately, they don't quite pull it off the way the complexity and scale of the show demands. There are too many little "off" things that detract from the show and prevent it from being great.<BR><BR> And while I'm normally not opposed to nudity, it's excessive here. The way it's used is more of a distraction then anything. Also, the music/song choices don't work either. They might be appropriate for the period or even the particular setting but if it doesn't compliment the moment/purpose, it doesn't belong. On a positive note, the strength of the character/story arcs (among other things) really makes tuning in worth while... Come to think of it, this might've worked better as a set of feature films.<BR><BR> Walking Dead stumbled a bit with that 2nd ep but looks like the recovered. Looking forward to the last few episodes.

    Chocalate Jeebus

    by mad_taffer

    Are you seriously trying to compare a network with an audience as big as Fox's with the cable network of AMC? Not to mention that Walking Dead doesn't even come on in the same time period. That's kind of a hollow argument. If anything Walking Dead should be measured up against other shows with the same amount of audience.

    Dexter has been AMAZING

    by blackwood

    But I agree that next season should be it's last. Or hell, even this season. I loved the first two seasons but the last two, it felt like it was struggling to find conflict and felt pretty convoluted. This season has felt far more like the original. Julia Styles kicks ass as Lumen. It's really tense.<p>It also feels like it is building toward Dexter being caught once and for all. I honestly hope that's how the season ends, and they have a plan for next year that will definitively finish the series. I love it, but it needs to end.

  • Nov. 24, 2010, 10:48 a.m. CST


    by frozen01

    Huh, interesting take. I actually haven't caught anything "off" with Boardwalk Empire, and I certainly don't find the nudity excessive in any way, or distracting. In fact, I can only think of a few scenes that had nudity, and it was fairly obvious why they did. Perhaps I've just been desensitized by True Blood *shrugs* <p>Also, I love the music. It works for the period, absolutely, and helps drag you back into the time and remind you that things are very different than they are now... keeps you on your toes a bit, if you will.

    Family Guy has been painful this past season.

    by BooBoosDaddy

    The Halloween ep only had like 2 chuckles from me, and last week's Brian centric ep was totally unfunny. Even more painful was the Rush Limbaugh/ Brian centric ep of a few weeks ago. I agree with Redhead_Redemption. Ugh. It's about to go the way of No Ordinary Family on my DVR, which pains me to say since I have been a fan since season 1.

    Empire and Dead... my Sunday night highlights

    by coosawatchie

    BE is a decent and ambitious show. I love Steve Buscemi, but he is having a hard time holding down the center of the BE universe. Not his fault; he's just asked to do something that is not his strength. I find myself anxious for TWD to ramp up it's story lines. I want to see the tension in the love triangle play out. I love how the zombies serve as a an excellent backdrop of threat for every scene.

    Brew Masters on Discovery

    by Jack Burton

    Just started this sunday. Worth checking out for craft beer fans. Takes place at Dogfish Head Brewery in Delaware and follows the owner as he made a beer called Bitches Brew for the anniversary of the Miles Davis album with Sony. Each week looks to be a different one off brew, but I'm hoping he visits other brewers as well.

    No more "Deconstructing Brian" episodes

    by TheSecondQuest

    The problem with this week's FG was the same as the Rush episode from a few weeks ago- they seem to be making an effort to deconstruct Brian's character in ways that are inconsistent with how he's been portrayed over the years (such as the notion that he's an arbitrary contrarian despite the fact that FG was on the air for at least 2 seasons during Clinton's administration).<p> Brian is the voice of reason on the show- the audience's POV to the crazier characters around Brian (sometimes Lois acts in this function too, but she can go off sometimes). (Except when he's acting like a dog, obviously- though that does endear him)<p> So when you try to make the character representing the audience into something he's not, you're essentially doing it to the audience themselves and that doesn't sit right with them, they notice it and it usually turns them off to it.<p> Which is not to say there isn't room for Brian to be deconstructed on occasion- the one with Quagmire worked very well because it was just a series of misunderstandings of good intentions. But all the efforts to try and replicate that since have come across false and usually resulted in boring episodes.

  • Nov. 24, 2010, 1:18 p.m. CST


    by Kraven Morehead

    This season is much like season 3 in that he has an apprentice and that just tips a far fetched show over the edge. This show does about a good a job as one can with such a far fetched idea but sometimes it pushes suspension of disbelief a bit too far. Question: Was the hotel room next to the head of security in his name because it seems like they would look into that considering said head of security broke down the door between his room and that one and then went missing. Are we too assume Dexter checked that out under a fake identity. They usually bring up things like that through some sort of exposition so I'm not asking questions like this later.

    Last sunday had an awesome lineup

    by MattmanReturns

    Dexter, Boardwalk, and Dead all kicked ass.

    by Dr Farragammo

    Started off lame this season with some dull subplots and with an uneven tone (wish original producer was still on board) but the Jordan chase storyline has brought it back from the brink so it's back to being awesome. Last season was SOOOO good there's no way to have lived up to it though. Lithgow took it up a notch. So how about a talkback? Also who else thinks Michael C Hall has the duality acting chops to do Batman? I think he could mop the floor with Bale

    But Lumen...

    by Dr Farragammo

    Has got to go. She's the equivalent of Snarf, Spritle and Chim-chim, or Orko. Annoying side kick who fucks up the main character's plans over and over. Plus I find her hammered. Dexter needs more hot women on his show this season.

    Bristol Palin

    by NudeandAroused

    I feel sorry for Bristol Palin. She was bound to catch shit from the crazies on the left, and be used by the crazies on the right. All she wanted to do was dance. I don't blame Sarah Palin for defending her kid, who wouldn't? As a life long socialist Democrat, I can say that Bristol Palin was used by both sides and that is sad. Also, I am really liking "Walking Dead." I like how the series is a little different and deeper than the comic. The comic is a masterpiece! Cannot wait for season 2!

  • Nov. 24, 2010, 3:58 p.m. CST

    Bristol Palin is fat

    by blackmantis

    And not the healthy, voluptuous Christina Hendricks kind of fat, but the lazy, greasy, Mc Donald's fed couch potato kind of fat of a spoiled brat who never worked for anything in her life.

    Stay tuned for more Melon!

    by SnootyBoots

    Amazing Race is down to four teams and Team Melon is one of them. I'd be willing to make a small wager that they make it into the finale three and that CBS promotes the last episode with commercials showing the infamous melon incident and a voice over that goes something like this, "Remember this? Tune in this week to see if Team Melon becomes the first all female team to win The Amazing Race."

    Dexter's worst season is picking up

    by FrodoFraggins

    This season has been pretty subpar until recently. I completely blame it on the new showrunners.<br><br> Julia Stiles just isn't doing a convincing job in her role. Which is surprising to me and very disappointing.

  • Nov. 24, 2010, 6:09 p.m. CST

    Stiles was getting on my nerves a bit too...

    by jay2517

    but, it has gotten better the last few episodes. plus, they need SOME kind of reason for Dex to get into the season ending dilemma lol...

  • Nov. 24, 2010, 7:32 p.m. CST

    Michael C Hall=Daredevil

    by jsarnold513

    He'd be the perfect Matt Murdoch if and when they try to reboot the Daredevil movies. He looks the part and definitely has enough acting ability to pull it off.

  • Nov. 24, 2010, 7:36 p.m. CST

    I don't get all the hate for Dexter's season

    by jsarnold513

    There was no way they could have topped last season. IMO, it was dragging a little early in the year, but every season of Dexter does that. They always plod along for the first 8 episodes or so introducting new characters and focusing on irrelevant subplots, then they race to a big finale over the last 4 hours. They even did the same thing last year, but John Lithgow's performance was so interesting that nobody complained. <p> Even though it can't live up to the excellence of last season (HOW COULD IT!?!?!?), this season still beats Season 3. Stiles' character is finally developing an interesting relationship with Dexter and she's showing herself to be a worthy addition to the cast. I'm hoping they don't kill her off at the end of this season like every other "special guest star" they've ever had. Season 6 is probably going to be the end of Dexter, anyway. <p> Why do we not have a Dexter TB!?!?!?

  • Nov. 24, 2010, 7:38 p.m. CST

    The last 2 episodes of Dexter have been as good as s4

    But why did Luman have a working cell phone last week that her boyfriend could call?

  • Nov. 24, 2010, 7:41 p.m. CST

    Good question...

    by jsarnold513

    Dexter's always full of random coincidences. You just have to go with it. Maybe she had an old cell phone that her parents paid for, which was left in her hotel room while she was kidnapped?

  • Nov. 24, 2010, 8:33 p.m. CST

    cell could have been in the bag...

    by jay2517

    thats luman had in her hotel room Dex found.

    Haven't watched the FOX Four in years

    by Chief Joseph

    I lost FOX in the digital switchover. (Thanks George W. Bush, you bastard.) I know if I really wanted to I could watch the FOX animation Domination on Hulu, but, meh. What's the point? Simpsons and Family Guy boned the fish a decade ago and American Dud and Cleveland were never good.

  • Nov. 24, 2010, 9:40 p.m. CST

    Dexter often has plot holes you can walk through

    by Dr Farragammo

    But it gets exempt because it's overall very cleverly written and is the only dark comedy murder mystery serial killer superhero show and it RULES. 24 (before it went to total shit) and Walking Dead get the same exemption in that it trades unbearable tension for plotholes and things that don't always jibe (still can't accept a black guy going back to save the guy that hit him and called him nigger, that is just retarded). I hope Dexter goes on for years, it helped me through Sopranos and Shield withdrawal, and I think it like just as much as either of them now. < > Hall as Daredevil totally works btw, but I just see him as Batman. Dye his hair and whatever else, but Batman is basically Dexter minus the killing, and Hall plays the fractured personality perfectly.

    Boardwalk Empire... I just watched all ten episodes

    by workshed

    Amazing television of the highest calibre, a real in-depth character study by the best cast in years. It reminds me in so many ways of 'I, Claudius' (and I can't pay it no higher compliment than that). HBO should be proud of it's new baby. I'm sure it's going to be a massive hit here in the UK.

    Yes, liberals, keep the hatred flowing. Show us your tolerance..

    by Coughlins Laws

    American liberals, the least tolerant, nastiest people you'll ever meet. Constantly showering personal attacks and hatred on anyone they don't agree with. Ignoring 2 and a half years of Obama saying there are 57 states, saying that America is 20 centuries old, saying Israel is a strong friend of Israel, etc, etc, etc. But if Palin misspeaks once or makes a typo on her Facebook, that's enough to call her stupid. Yes, show us all your hypocrisy. It's pretty funny, your delusions....

  • Nov. 27, 2010, 5:56 a.m. CST

    The difference is... Palin isn't misspeaking

    by American Mythos

    That's why her "gaffes" get so much coverage compared to Obama's. Nobody honestly thinks a constitutional law professor believes there are 57 states and that the constitution was written 20 centuries ago. But they do believe that a small town mayor and half-term governor from backwoods Alaska can be that stupid. McCain's own campaign aides said Palin didn't know the difference between North and South Korea (further evidenced by her latest statement), thought Africa was a country, and that Saddam Hussein was behind 9-11. Even Sarah Palin's strongest supporters have stopped pretending she isn't stupid and instead have embraced her stupidity as an American virtue. Didn't you get the memo?

    by jonsnow

    They are the only network that has the number one cable news channel, yet all their local channels show stuck-on-stupid cartoon shows, when most sane networks at that time in the evening have something called "world news", since the invention of a technological marvel called television. Plus they always cancel any good sci-fi tv show like SAAB and Firefly by puting it on after a big football game on Friday night when everybody is asleep. How will the Simpsons be on, 130+ years? I don't know but it probably has been on a lot longer than Gunsmoke by now.

    by FeralAngel

    She also should have stayed Governor. She quit because she couldn't take the crap some obsessed haters kept throwing at her, dopey lawsuits and stuff that were indeed costing taxpayers a hell of a lot of money, but still, if she can't handle the heat of a governorship, there's no way she could handle the Presidency. Especially with open-minded liberals who say they want to empower women throwing sexist insults at her all of the time. Heh. Fucking hypocrites.
