Uhhhhh what? It was the nights 2nd highest rated cable show and #1 in the key demographic. That's not a flop.

If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

For cable, that's not a flop -  it's not a huge cable audience compared to "Walking Dead" but comparable to "Mad Men" and "True Detective".

 

For a comparison, the season premier of "The Americans" on FX pulled 1.9 million which is very typical for cable shows though not so good for a scripted show with high production costs - fortunately it has excellent international distribution as does "Vikings."

Voice of reason.

Thanks.

I get jumpy when I hear cancellation talk of my favorite programs.

Hopefully "Black Sails" gets the same love.

In the article I read, last year's Vikings debut had about 6 million viewers as opposed to this year's debut.  But, last year the Vikings came after the Bible hit and picked up a lot of viewers from that.  This year, they came on without that lead-in.  So the 3.2 million was more than acceptable.

 

That Viking leader looks a lot like Charlie Hunnam, from Sons of Anarchy to me.  Same mannerisms, same cool demeanor, same calculating eyes.

It took 3 episodes before I realized it was not him.

I gotta admit I looked back at the credits the first time I saw the show.  Thought they might be related.
