Sunday evening’s TV ratings are in, and the series finale of Breaking Bad unsurprisingly stole everyone’s thunder.  Here’s a brief look at the highlights:

  • The final episode of Breaking Bad scored 10.3 million viewers and a 6.7 rating in the 18-49 demo, marking series-best numbers in both categories.  Obviously quite a few people made a point of catching up in time for the finale, as those numbers shatter last Sunday’s record of 6.6 million viewers and a 4.3 rating.
  • Opposite BB, the season premiere of Showtime’s Homeland (which apparently couldn’t wait one more week) scored 1.9 million viewers, making it the most-watched season premiere of the show yet.
  • Over on ABC, Once Upon a Time’s season premiere hit a 2.6 rating in the demo and 8.45 million viewers, which is down 33% from last year’s season two premiere.

AMERICAN DAD Moving to TBS in 2014

by     Posted 1 year, 129 days ago

american-dad-slice-01

Though Seth MacFarlane certainly had his hands full with three animated sitcoms running at the same time on Fox, it looks like Family Guy will be the last one standing on the network come next year.  Fox neglected to renew the Family Guy spinoff series The Cleveland Show for a fifth season, and now the network has announced (via TV Line) that the animated series American Dad will be moving to TBS after its upcoming tenth season.  AD was MacFarlane’s first new series after the revival and massive success of Family Guy, but one imagines the show will do just fine as part of TBS’ original lineup.

American Dad will still air its upcoming tenth season on Fox, but in late 2014 new episodes of the show will be found on TBS.  MacFarlane isn’t exactly lacking for work, though, as his live-action TV series debut Dads premieres on Fox this fall and he’s currently towards the end of production on his feature film directorial follow-up to Ted, the Western comedy A Million Ways to Die in the West.
