Season End Status: It took a while, but AMC finally greenlighted this show for a third season.  Its numbers were down in its second season, but it is still doing okay for a cable entry these days and it did see decent gains from delayed viewing (more important to the cable channels than the broadcast nets), and it also stirred up some activity on the social networks. In addition, the show has been pretty well received across its two seasons so far.  AMC might want to see the show’s viewership improve, or at least not drop off, if this one is to get to a fourth season, though.
