Season End Status: This show’s numbers are at the lowest point since its fist season as the “Walking Dexit” has not let up yet. It remains one of the top-rated scripted show on all of television, though not by as much of a margin anymore, and it is set up to head into a new direction starting with its ninth season. I expect it to stick around for at least few more years which I go into in more detail at this link.
