Season End Status: Apparently this show only had ten episodes for its sixth season which it has now wrapped up. Its ratings improved on its fifth year performance with a 1.6 average based on the overnights for the 18-49 demographic vs its 1.5 average last year, making it one of the few shows on television seeing year over year ratings gains. Its seventh season is already planned for next Fall and FX could keep this one going for a few more year if they choose.
