    I love this show I can’t believe only 2 or 3 more left. Ratings who are these people? I live and breathe this show there just isn’t much out there.

    WI am full of fear though! Look at all this crap A&E is getting ready to put on. Right there tells me LONGMIRE does’t have a chance it’s the only non reality I can think of.

    More to the point I am so sick of Criminal Minds reruns what is up with that!

    This show has given Monday night tv viewing a badly needed jump-start. Forget the tv ratings, just keep the actors with good scripts and the ratings will follow. Best show on A& E.

    We look forward to Longmire each week. Everyone we have turned on to it love it as much as we do. This is a good, well made show. Please respect the people who watch it every week and renew it for a fourth season early so we don’t have to worry all off season. The acting is top notch and the characters are well defined.

    They are running a story arc that doesn’t look like it will be answered this year, so be prepared to never know. cause I seriously doubt this show will be back with these poor numbers.

      The 18-49 demo numbers are borderline at .5 but the total viewer numbers are actually very good for a cable show and better than a lot of other shows that got renewed on other networks. The Total Viewer numbers are close to A&E’s “favorite” Duck Dynasty and much better than A&E’s other original drama Bates Motel which they renewed. I just hope A&E is at least smart enough to know Longmire is a quality show with a loyal following and that the numbers don’t actually reflect how popular it as the rating system is pretty antiquated and they renew for a 4th season. Longmire is the only thing I watch on A&E.

        Actually Bates Motel has better numbers in the 18-49 demo that networks seem to care most about. I don’t think A&E really cares about scripted dramas anyway. They are focused on their so called reality shows.
