I talked to Donal Logue today [interview to be posted next week] about his FX show "Terriers" (10pm, Tonight). Logue has just returned after a 3-week cross-country tour promoting the show along with co-star Michael Raymond-James and told us about the fans that the show has created far and wide. It's no secret that "Terriers" has been a favorite of ours and the 10pm Wednesday pick since it began airing. We talked up the screeners that we got long before we talked to Logue at the "Sons of Anarchy" premiere back in September. This great show is run by Shawn Ryan ("The Shield", "Lie To Me") with an incredible supporting cast (Laura Allen, Kimberly Quinn, etc.) and is headed by Logue and Raymond-James. We defy you to find a better, more-realistic, and genuine duo on current television than these two. The show is fun to watch, the dialogue and plot are excellent, and nothing shakes "Terriers" off my dial for real-time viewing on a Wednesday at 10pm so we are dismayed at its low viewership. Why aren't more people watching this show? What else could they be watching?
