It was a very positive start to the new drama. The ratings were on par with the debut of The Americans earlier this year.


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.

What do you think? Do you like The Bridge TV series? Do you think that it should be cancelled or renewed for a second season?

Please renew! Love the acting and complex characters. There are very few shows with Latino characters and this happens to be a good one. I look forward to it every week.

I can’t stand this turd of a show. I am so disappointed that they cancelled the Killing, but this preachy, annoying piece of crap needs to go away forever. I can’t stand Krueger the Aperbergers Android. A cop who needs to be babysat and can’t do the job on her own? Seriously? And i do not feel sorry for Mexicans that are trying to sneak into my country and take American jobs and more thn I feel sorry for burglars sneaking into my home to steal my stuff. Its exactly the same. And i wish they would stop pushing that agenda. Perhaps once this turd is gone they can make an intelligent non preachy crime show that is about the crime solving, not the quirky detective partners and their politically correct agenda.

Wow, not only are you a hateful jerk, but also an idiot. You clearly know nothing about El Paso/Juarez, you don’t know how to follow a plot line, and your grammar and spelling are horrid. Get a life!

Martine, in case you didn’t hear, Netflix has come to the rescue and picked The Killing up for a fourth and final season of six episodes.

Like this show-evolving characters and ongoing suspense.
Good to show cross cultural issues and how we are different and yet the same.
Hope I can see it for a long time to come.

This is an excellent show with good writing and great acting. I know some people who were turned off by Diane Kruger’s character but if a viewer stays with the show, they’ll be pleasantly surprised with her character’s development. I so hope it is renewed.

I love, love, love The Bridge and think it definitely should be renewed. It is one of the absolute best shows on TV right now!
