2.9 million people watched the premiere of Breaking Bad on AMC and 2.3 tuned in for the 2nd episode. Does anyone know how pathetic those numbers are? Here’s a look at the top 20 programs for Cable television. The first 3 are from TNT which I barely even knew existed let alone knew that so many people watch these shows. I might just watch one just to see if they deserve to be watched by this many people. WWE holds two slots because of redneck hillbillies. Storage Wars holds two spots which is pretty impressive for how worn out the show is. 3 Re-Runs of Family guy on Adult Swim garner this many views????? These shows can’t hold a candle to Breaking Bad.
BREAKING BAD CAN’T FIND THIS LIST?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!? I honestly don’t get how a show that I feel is probably one of the top 5 TV shows of all time isn’t even close to a top 20 program in terms of views. The only thing I can think of is that it’s just not that well known. People just don’t have a clue about how good it is. They’d rather watch crappy TNT and USA programming than a show that’s unbelievable. I will be perfectly honest and say I didn’t know it existed for the first 3 seasons due to being unaware. People still don’t know the show exists as proof by the numbers. I’m sure there are better reasons for this occurrence but it truly just boggles my mind this show doesn’t get more notoriety.
