FX's The Strain A Bigger Hit Than The Old Ratings Model Said - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movie, TV News
Instead of releasing the overnight numbers, “Live + Same Day”, the network remained quiet until the “Live + 3″ came in. This may seem self-explanatory, but just in case – the Live + Same Day numbers show the ratings for the initial airing and the rest of that day. The Live + 3 adds in the ratings for the following three days of DVR playback. Many people, especially younger viewers, no longer watch shows when they are schedule but rather off of a DVR.
It’s not uncommon for a show, especially 10 pm dramas, to jump as much as 50% when the additional three days of DVR playback is included. The Strain jumped 64% and could come close to doubling it’s initial audience if you look at the Live + 7 data.
Looking at Guillermo del Toro’s vampire-virus drama”The Strain,” it averaged a 1.91 rating in adults 18-49 (2.43 million viewers) and 4.73 million total viewers in “Live + 3″ ratings, rising 64% in demo rating (from 1.18) and 58% in total viewers (from 2.99 million) from its “Live plus same-day” averages. The 1.91 puts it ahead of TNT’s “The Last Ship,” which did a 1.73 rating in Live+3 (after earning the same 1.18 rating as “The Strain” in “Live+same-day”).Couldn't agree more.The article points out the problem with the Neilsen Ratings system. As more and more avenues of watching a program become available – DVR, On-Demand, Streaming – there needs to be a way to track the true popularity of the show through all of these avenues. How many shows have been cancelled because the networks can’t really see how popular they are?

FX Passes On Charlie Kaufman's 'How & Why,' '70s Set Plot Details For 'Fargo' Season 2 Revealed | The Playlist
FX has passed on "How & Why," a comedy pilot they ordered from Kaufman. Led by Michael Cera and John Hawkes (killer), with supporting turns by Sally Hawkins and Catherine Keener (again, killer) this one follows a man clueless about life, yet who is smart enough to explain how and why a nuclear reactor works. Perfectly absurd, but it seems the price tag is a sticking point. According to THR, the project is being shopped around, but Netflix has already passed, while IFC may take a look.FARGO - The 1979 Sioux Falls case hinted at throughout the first season will become the focus of the second season, with the narrative jumping backward in time. "We will meet Molly's mother and we may learn what happened to her. Ben Schmidt [Peter Breitmayer's series one police lieutenant] will factor in there somewhere... There were a lot of clues left in the first season and we'll do our best to hit those," writer Noah Hawley said at the Television Critics Association press tour
