    Anyone have a clue what happened to the ratings/rankings for this show? A few days ago, Kill them All had a 9.9, and almost every episode was anywhere from 0.1 to 0.6 higher than where they are now. And the show was ranked at 9.1, the third highest on TV.com! Well, it's still coming up as the third highest rated, but still, what happened to the rankings? Spartacus has a 9 now, instead of a 9.1, yet it's still in front of Simpsons (which has a 9.1)!

    I was thinking the same exact thing when I looked at the ratings this morning. ALL the episodes are getting down-ranked for some reason. My review for 'Kill Them All' has gotten 9 thumbs up since that episode was released, and recently its been thumbed down another 9 times. I looked at other episode reviews and they are all also down-voted like crazy (seriously, see for yourself, up/down vote ratio is off by a lot). Somebody (or a bunch of them) is down-voting everything on this show for some reason.

    What happened was that Spartacus was actually the highest rated show on all of tv.com a couple of days ago. Some fans of other high rated shows clearly didn't like this, and decided to vote it back down.

    Grr. Sometimes I hate this website. So when you down vote a review of a show, that affects that actual rating of the episode/show? That's ridiculous! It should only count if they make a review. It's too easy just to click thumbs up or thumbs down on a review; take the time to write one!

    Wow seriously, these guys need to stop this **** Kill Them All has dropped below 9 and I am **** sure that episode deserves a higher score than that. These people are clearly not even watching the show and they're downvoting everything. This is disgraceful.

    Wow... What the F*** TV.com seriously has to fix this... The show is awesome and ANYONE who actually watches it would agree... I certainly find it hard to believe that at random 100+ people voted it a 1 and it's not just a bunch of Gossip Girl loving tools upset there show isn't number one... Honestly, only reviews of the episode should count towards it's true rating... Maybe have a seperate rating system for others...

    What the f*ck?! Kill Them All has a rating of 8.1?!?!?! WTH?! That episode was freaking amazing and like a week ago it had a 9.9. Almost all of the reviews are 10s too!! I think someone who hates this show with a passion might be making new accounts and rating them down over and over!! > This is such sh*t!!!!!!

    The same thing has happenned to other great shows before, for instance, "Psyched", the average rating of an episode on tv.com always lies between a 5.5-7.0. Eventhough the reviews of the episode claim otherwise.

    It's sad to see spammers contineu to do this to shows, just because they hate it when theirs don't rank nr.1 on the site.

    I just stumbled upon this too, what the f**k?! Kill Them All = 8.0??

    Jupiter's cock what a joke - this episode is as close to a 10 as anything I've seen on TV! Whoever is responsible for this downrating madness should be send straight to the mines... or the pits of the underworld...

    Yeah, now it's down to 7.9, which makes it the only episode besides the pilot to be below a rating of 8.0. It's only "good" now instead of "great"...

    Seriously, what it their **** problem?

    All of the episodes are below 9 now, many below 8. The show has dropped from a 9.2 overall rating to an 8.6. The finale has dropped from 9.9 to 7.9.


    TV.com, DO something. In the grand scheme of things, it really doesn't matter because it's not like being the top show on here means anything, I suppose, but these people are misrepresenting this show and many others, and they're possibly scaring potential viewers away from giving it/them a try.


    This is BULL.

    IMO, the rating is controlled to balance between the other tv shows, and it depends on also how much money has been invested to the advertisement on this site.

    7.4 and still dropping...

    @Bamb0o-Stick

    Nice work, man! We'll have to wait and see if there's going to be any kind of reaction. And while I'm doubtful that we can actually change things back to the way they should be I'm very happy about your kind of resistance! Kudos, together we shall see Rome tremble!
