    Summer TV Winners and Losers

    Loser: 'Low Winter Sun'
    The huge "Breaking Bad" ratings have made the low ratings of its new Sunday night partner look even worse by comparison. Sunday night's episode lost a whopping 75 percent of the "Breaking Bad" audience leading into it, and an incredible 83 percent of adults 18-49. It's like ABC's failures at using "Lost" to launch a new show behind it: when "Breaking Bad" is over, its fans only want to watch, talk and think about "Breaking Bad" some more. AMC has tried to use previews for other shows — first "Breaking Bad," then mega-hit "The Walking Dead" — as bait to lure viewers into watching until at least the first "LWS" commercial break, but it hasn't helped. AMC isn't in the habit of pulling or moving its shows in mid-season, but we may be at a point where "LWS" either trades places with "Talking Bad," or perhaps gets pushed to Saturdays in favor of an instant "Breaking Bad" replay. Even if AMC stays the course all season, the audience has rejected the show, and many critics have dismissed it as a watered-down imitator of all the gritty anti-heroes that have preceded it (including the one that AMC airs an hour earlier).
    This has been terribly disappointing. It's basically the same theme repackaged week to week.

    The thing with LWS to me is it is just too dark and confusing if you blink or fall asleep for 5 mins. You get a tiny little breadcrumb every episode. After 4 eps they just seem to be: avoiding IA guy, trying to want to frame someone, showing a bit more of the 'bad guys'. I'm still watching but it's not a must-see.

    Kingsqueen was really proud of herself when she renamed it Sllllllllllllllllooooooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwww wwwwwwwwwwwwwww Winter Sun. I razzed her for picking low hanging fruit...but yeah. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Lennie James/Mark Strong...and even Gale from BB, but this show has soooooo little meat on it's bones. I championed this loud and often, and I feel sooooo let down. I would have bet the house...and woulda been homeless. THEY LOST 78% OF THE LEAD IN!!!!!!! An instant re-run of BB would double or triple their numbers...

    Ehh, misogyny? Really? How bout the fact that everyone loves Walt and her character continually ruins his fun? Maybe it isn't so much that she's a woman as she's a responsible adult that is forced into the bad cop role?
