Glades Kicks Ass

The premiere of THE GLADES made TV history for A&E, according to Deadline Hollywood:

Third time proved to be the charm for A&E whose third original series, The Glades, debuted with 3.6 million viewers last night, posting the network's most-watched original drama series telecast ever. The Glades also broke records in the adults 18-49 and 25-54 demographics, delivering 1.4 million viewers and 1.2 million viewers, respectively. Combined with the encore airing, The Glades was watched by a total of 5.1 million viewers last night and grew by 38% from its lead-in.

I have a vested interested in the news. Bill Rabkin and I wrote the third episode and are in the midst of writing another one now.

  1. I tried to watch it, and I liked the ending quite a bit, but my attention drifted during the middle and I lost track of the story, and the lead is not charming enough to overcome being a jerk. Plus, the science babble about the alligator tooth was ridiculously, ridiculously, horribly, painfully wrong. (“All members of chordata are extremely territorial”? Srsly?)
    So I am unlikely to continue.

  2. Enjoyed the pilot. unlike Greg, I don’t mind science babble as long as it isn’t too outrageous. I would never have known about the tooth mess if he hadn’t said something.
    Thanks, Greg.
    I’ll be looking forward to your episodes.
