It was a pretty good start for the show — not a big hit and not a bomb out of the gate.


Cable ratings are typically released within a day or so of the show’s airing, except for in the case of weekends and holidays. They are sometimes harder to come by so there may be occasional delays or gaps.

    Wonderful show…it should be renewed. Refreshing to have a show like this with
    a great cast and little violence. I love Edgar…..
    they should perhaps have it earlier in the evening and maybe it would
    get more veiwers.

    I love this show!! Probably my favorite new show. Do they count people who are not Nielsen members?.? I always watch the later version, but I will start watching the earlier one if it counts. I really love the books, so I want this show to do well. I hope TNT will give it a chance and a second season. I don’t understand how Franklin and Bash keeps getting renewed, but other good shows like Leverage get cancelled. Also some shows don’t do really well at first, but then become very popular. So I don’t understand why networks won’t give them a chance.

    Excellent! Just heard about it from Jimmy Kimmel’s interview with Rebecca. My husband and I enjoyed it so much we stayed up til 3 am watching it. Going tonwatchnthe other episodes over the weekend. Missed the 1 st episode so started with the 2nd. The relationship between her and John Tenney is intriguing. Hope it stays on the air.

    I record it every week along with Major Crimes. Talented actors and creative ensemble of characters, especially Edgar and Sean. I agree, give it time to grow. We love it!

    I really enjoy this show and hope it comes back for a second season.
    I think the characters have great chemistry together and do a good job
    Following the characters in the books.

    Love it hope it sticks around.

    I like this show. I record it each week in case I wanna watch again. The cast is high chemistry, especially with Edgar as an intriguing addition. Don’t know what ratings or how many episodes it takes to determine a go for a second season, but I really hope our comments help. Pull-eeze give it another season!!!

    I like it…..found it by accident, maybe they need to advertise it a little more! I think it deserves a second season….plan on catching up ” on-demand”. Told some friends and they liked it to

    King & Maxwell was a good show. I enjoyed it a lot. TNT seems to cancel shows before they aver have a chance. They did the same thing with Monday Mornings. That was a new concept for a medical show. I used to look forward yo Monday nights on TNT. Shame on them.

    I like this show! I am a huge fan of Ryan Hurst and I love the fact that he is playing a character that is completely different than he has played before. Edgar steals the show for me. I like that Jon Tenney is proving to hold his own since the Closer, and I have to admit that even though Rebecca Romijn is not my first choice for Michelle, she’s not bad. I’m excited to see that Christian Kane will be guest starring in an episode as her brother and I can’t wait to see my favorite Leverage guy back on TV!! Bottom line this show needs to be given a chance and I hope it gets a second season!

    I really want to like this show and I think it has possibilities. Jon Tenney is a great actor and is proving to be able to hold his own after coming off a very successful “Closer” series. I do feel that for this show to do well, there needs to be a change in the leading lady. They did a great job casting this show, the exception being Rebecca Romijn. I think she is a beautiful lady, but this is not the role for her. If this show is to survive a re-casting of the Michelle Maxwell character is a must.

    I sure agree with posting by Sherrill! Give new shows a chance…you can’t get to know characters in two episodes. Am enjoying this new series.

  12. Sherrill says

    So far, I’ve seen 2 episodes of this show and I’ve enjoyed them. Enough so that I’ve been compelled to do some research to find out more about the series. Since I’ve only seen the 2 (and I think that’s all that’s been released of the 10 available), I’m wondering how can anyone be asking if the series is going to be cancelled! Why can’t they give the series a chance? Hey…give the TV viewers a chance! I’ve already started liking this series and that’s always scary…’cause if I like something that’s almost a given it’ll be cancelled. I’d really like to see this show survive this season and come back for a few more; we the viewers need something entertaining to watch without having pathetic “slice-of-life” realities stuffed down our throats 24/7. Just sayin’…
