Season 2 Episode 3 Ratings Continue to Slide

The third episode of this second season of Falling Skies continues the downward ratings trend as the 18-49 rating dropped to 1.2 from last week's 1.3.  Total viewers fell as well to 3.4 million from last week's 3.8 million.

While dropping ratings are never a good sign, it should be noted that Falling Skies was up against not only the Olympic Trials but also the BET Awards Show.  I know I seem to keep making excuses for the dropping Falling Skies Ratings, but the truth is, the show has been going up against some stiff (and temporary) competition so far this season.  While the Olympic Trials may be over, the Olympics themselves start pretty soon and will likely prove to hurt the Falling Skies ratings as well.

If you're interested in seeing the other cable shows Falling Skies was up against last weekend, check the listing here.

    I'm not surprised that ratings are bad...falling skies is not that good. i thought it would be wayy better this season. I even voted it as the most overrated show on the television without pity Tubey awards and i bet it will win.
