    So the first episode apparently got 5.29 million viewers and the second episode got slighly lower with 4.89 million viewers. Now thats a bit of a drop and a fairly low number for the second episode i was hoping it would stay above 5 million... Well saying that as long as episode 3 does not drop anymore viewers we might be ok. Lets wait and see huh?

    well again the ratings have dropped for 3 weeks continuously, however they are fairly steady and only marginally dropping so who knows it might be ok...it seems that they are gonna air all 13 episodes now.

    4.47 for in sickness and in health. It's a bit of a shame actually, i expect another big drop after this weeks viewing too. It won't keep me from watching but i expect because it wasn't the best episode and had the best guest stars people will just give up on the show.

    Keep in mind it is the summer and viewership is expected to be low. It takes less to make a successful show than during the regular season.

    As an example Kyle XY, given two and I think renewed for a third season, got a 2.6 rating for its first season on ABC Family. This was enough for ABC to give it a run on its network channel where it got 4.6 on average, IIRC. Given these numbers, and the fact that it is going into a third season, I don't see fear itself as a failure yet.

    Personally I hope it sticks around.

    Massive drop for new year's day to 2.93. It's a shame actually, it's one of the best episodes so far.
