With any show it is about when it airs. A show can do great in one time slot or day and do terrible in another. Having the show on during the Summer is no different. Although no one really knows how well it would have done during the regular season since it's all conjecture.

Personally I would have watched it during the regular TV season and most people I know that watch UTD would have as well. But the show was already profitable before it even aired since it was sold over seas and also to Amazon for streaming before CBS even broadcast it. So even if it had aired during the regular season it would have still been profitable.

One thing is for sure, the networks have plans to run more shows during the the Summer. Since the viewership is waning during the traditional TV season time, Summertime is the one season that they can increase their viewership. All the major networks have plans for more Summer shows in 2014. And the huge success of UTD is part of the reason for that.

Like I said, there's nothing on now and UTD is reaping the benefits of no competition.
If this were a regular fall show, I'd have dropped it by the 3rd episode.

OK..junior is a psycho, so lets give him a uniform and a cop car and let him drive around unsupervised. Then. If he needs to go "undercover" to get into the fight club, all he has to do is take off the shirt and no, one will notice.

That had me actually laughing out loud. I can just see Walt holding the meth while jumping up and down laughing and taunting Big Jim as Big Jim stares on seeing but not hearing Walt.

As a side point, I love how "Big" Jim is about 5"5'.

Maybe the nickname is more about length than height.

He was given that nickname as a joke.

My first thought was "Since when does Big Jim live on a lake?" He was in the middle of town before, wasn't he? I can't imagine you'd have a storm/fallout shelter that close to a lake.

I was curious, so I tried swimming some laps in my pool over the weekend with my hands crossed in front as if they were tied. With some practice and mental preparation I think I could go a good ways, but if I had fallen out of a boat fully clothed and watched in horror as it pulled away I think I'd be dead in 5 minutes or less. It was very tiring to not be able to give my legs a break.

If she knew about Drownproofing, she likely could have easily made it to shore even with her hands tied (assuming the water wasn't too cold.) The idea is to mostly float, and use your energy sparingly.

Yeah, that was totally not the same house, IMO. Maybe he has a vacation house on the lake and he went there? That house was sitting right on the water, and when Junior brought Blondie to his mom's art studio, it seemed like they were going behind the house into some wooded area to get to it.

Good thought, but how would Barbie know to show up at the vacation house? And Big Jim was just hanging out like he's always been there.

It doesn't really matter in the grand scheme of this show...just a(nother) glaring inconsistency.

True.

I try not to think about these things too much but that house bugged me. It also bugs me when I think about how these people apparently have infinite gasoline for their cars.

That was our conversation when I saw her name on the credits. But my husband seemed to recognize her when he saw her.

Winningham was older than most of the others in the Brat Pack. She's 6 years older than Rob Lowe. But she still looks rough...

Is it bad that my first reaction to seeing her was, "hey it's Meredith Grey's step-mom!"?
