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?

This is one of the best shows on any media right now, period! My husband & daughter both have Asberger’ s which is in the process of being changed to simply high functioning autism, so it has been wonderful to see a show which puts it out there for people to learn that those with this syndrome, while odd in social situations, are generally very intelligent and with help from loved ones often become quite successful in whatever they do. Add that to the fact that the scripts are almost brilliant, we get to see the underbelly of what really happens in south western border towns, and a cast that frankly consistently blows me away with their excellence, and we have a program that is truly must see TV! If you aren’t watching this show, you are missing the best the entertainment world has to offer. I doubt this largely overlooked show will ever be considered for an Emmy, and that is SHAME ON THEM!!! However a great big THANK YOU to one of my favorite networks, FX, for renewing this wonderful show for next summer!

Excellent show, I was a bit put off in the beginning as I did not understand Diane Krugers character…I actually had to research what she was about…When it came together, I was on board…Demia’n Bichir I have loved since I saw him in A Better Life…Extremely talented actor…Very well executed show, gritty full of great twists and turns…Yes, I do hope this is renewed many times over….
