I don't have the final Sunday numbers yet, but we do know that Better Call Saul was not only a record breaker for AMC but its premiere was the biggest series premiere in cable history.  Viewed by 4.4 million A18-49 and 4 million A25-54. The show delivered over 6 million total viewers.  Also back in a huge way, The Walking Dead. 15.6 million viewers saw the mid-season premiere. 10.1 A18-49. AMC is kicking @ss and taking names. 

The Grammy's delivered an 8.5 and was seen by 25.3 million viewers. Big number, yes but it was down from a 9.9 last year. Probably because of all the slow numbers and the amazing competition it was up against. Not just Walking Dead and Better Call Saul, but Girls, Downton Abbey, Episodes and more. 


Better Call Saul
Okay, I had seen the pilot a while ago and didn't want to ruin it for anyone (plus AMC asked me nicely not to write about it until after it premiered.) I am going to postpone my BCS post for another day because I didn't see last nights episode and I wanted to re-watch the premiere. So my apologies for the delay but sometimes real life does get in the way of my viewing. Hoping to have it all for you tomorrow.

Downton Abbey
What's with the names these Downton people are given by these nutty writers? Shrimpie, Sprat, Mr. Bates, Dinka and Marigold. Of course it's still Mr. Bates that gets me EVERY SINGLE TIME. Speaking of Mr. Bates, he found Lady Mary's birth control and thought it was Anna's. To her credit, she didn't give up her boss's secret. Impressive right? Mr. Bates told his wife that he knew Mr. Greene was her rapist, but he also told Anna that he didn't kill Mr. Greene. You'd think that would have been enough for Anna to relax, but once she realized that she was responsible for getting rid of the coat with unripped train ticket she started freaking out all over again. She needs some Xanax. So did Lady Edith. A year after Gregson disappeared, she finally got the confirmation that Hitler and his boys killed him. There was SOME good that came out of all of it though. She inherited his publishing company. So she took her daughter from the Drew's and left for London to start a new life. Let's see how long that lasts. Hey, maybe now she'll smile for a change. Okay guys...what did you think of Lady Mary's new hairdo? I enjoyed everyone's reaction to it more than I actually enjoyed the do itself. Lady Mary rocks. Did you see her riding side saddle and kicking some serious butt in the horse race? Tony, Charles and Mabel were all in town for the race too and of course Cora insisted they all stay at Downton. Should get interesting. Barrow got an infection from the bogus anti-gay drugs he was taking. Mr. Carson's suggestion that he and Mrs. Hughes by an investment property together leads me to believe that one day they will live there and get nasty together. Can you imagine Carson in bed with anyone? NO FREAKING WAY. Bet he keeps his gloves on. When the Dowager Countess wasn't "visiting" with her Russian ex-crush, she had a couple of great lines.  My favorite, "all this endless thinking…it's very overrated. I blame the war. Before 1914 war, nobody thought of anything at all." I bet the Dowager and Russian had some good times back in the day. I'd like to see that spin-off.

The Fosters
Jake T. Austin, the kid who plays Jesus on The Fosters, is 20 years old, so it's definitely super wrong for me to have a crush on him, but damn he's never wearing a shirt and he has a crazy set of abs. I'm sure the director just does that for all the teenage girls but us non teenage girls notice too. I don't know if it's because Rosie O'Donnell's separated again but I keep getting the feeling that Steph and Lena are going to break up too. Lena's sick of Steph's tough love and her obsession with Mike and I think she's going to have a little something with that new principal. Don't you? She's super cute. Emma's back tutoring Jesus. So mark my words, they'll be hooking up by the finale. Lu and Brandon are still digging each other but Brandon may love classical music more than he loves Lu. Matt's  also in love. He just can't get enough Marianna, but she's nervous about him leaving on tour.  First she tried pushing him away and then she decided that maybe she should just go on tour with him. He didn't like that idea at all. Callie and Robert both hate cilantro but Robert wants more and Callie says she can't give more. Of course when the cops showed up to question Callie about the kidnapping during Christmas, she didn't call Lena or Steph, she called Robert. Connor invited Jude on a double date with Taylor and Daria just so he could secretly finger hug his old buddy at the movies. Did Connor get super cute over the break or what? Don't get me wrong, he's no Jesus, but the tween girls (and guys) will love him. 

Celebrity Apprentice
Geraldo, Vivica and Leeza were waiting forever to see who got fired from last weeks challenge until Amanda called them back to the boardroom. Vivica made a HUGE mistake, she said out loud that Leeza Gibbons was better than she was and so…the Donald let her go. Now it's Geraldo vs. Leeza. Leeza better win. Donald sent them both to Universal Studios to produce a commercial and sell some vacation packages for the Mother Ship. Way to keep it in the family Donald. They grabbed the Trump plane to Florida, which was pretty cool and then it was game ON!  Didn't need that Geraldo mustache close up. Looked like he was going to pull something outta that thing. Yeah, Kevin Jonas, Brandi and Johnny Damon were there for Leeza. Brandi seemed to have fit in a botox appointment since getting fired.  Geraldo got Ian, Vivica and Lorenzo helping him out. Brandi and Johnny were very distracted at the park. First they had to get beer and hot dogs. Then they hopped the roller coaster when they should have been shopping. Leeza didn't even care.  Kevin wanted to put them on leashes. Actual leashes.Who DOESN'T Ian have in that phone. You need someone to get you on the moon? Ian knows someone. It's amazing. So now we wait til next week to see who wins. It better be Leeza. Geraldo's a doosh. 

Great episode of Episodes Sunday night. Matt NEEDS money and his agent got him a gig. 500K to go to some dictators party for 3 days. Sure it's dangerous, sure the guy tortures and kills people but he's a huge Friends fan! Sooo off to some Middle Eastern country he went and guess who was also there? David Schwimmer! Yep! Ross was there and he was getting a millllllion dollars! Poor Matt. Morning suggested they release their sex tape for some extra  dough but Matt didn't even remember sleeping with Morning. So she had to go to the video tape. Well, first they had to find a VCR and then they went to the video tape. Carol found out that Merc slept with Helen and when Helen found out that Merc told her she was pissed. He's the last dude Helen was with before she changed teams. He also wanted to hire Bert Convy or Richard Dawson for his new game show. Too bad they're both dead. Name the game shows they hosted when they were alive for some bonus points. Beverly and Sean dealt with the Tim problem. That guy is super annoying!  You guys should really watch Episodes. It's another awesome show about nothing.


-Guess who's hosting the Justin Bieber roast? Guess, no…just guess. Forget it, you'll never guess.  Kevin Hart. Yep, Kevin's going to host the roast. I can't wait to watch that roast on March 30th. Pretty sure it's being filmed in LA but if it was filmed here I'd be begging to go.  Justin's totally up for it. Hope he can take it.  Did you see Justin on Ellen? Whether you love Justin or hate him, this is funny stuff. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SZ_--mt4bk

-ABC Family cancelled Melissa and Joey after it's 4th Season. They're saying it's because there was no story left to tell, but I totally know why they had to end this one. It was Joey's hair. Once he went from being hot to bald, no more viewers. Sad but true. Cool hair equals ratings! 

-I gave up HBO's Getting On, but HBO hasn't. They renewed it for a 3rd and final season. Now I feel like I have to go back and watch it until it ends next season. More pressure for me.
