    I guess there was something worth watching?

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — In the feud between the Hatfields and McCoys, the History channel proved the winner.
    A miniseries about the warring families set basic cable viewing records, according to Nielsen Co. figures the channel released Thursday.
    The three nights of "Hatfields & McCoys" were the top-rated entertainment telecasts ever for ad-supported basic cable, History said.
    Wednesday's finale of "Hatfields & McCoys" was the most-watched of the three nights, with 14.3 million viewers. According to the History channel, that makes it the No. 1 non-sports and non-news program ever on ad-supported cable.
    Parts one and two of the star-filled drama were right behind with 13.9 million and 13.1 million viewers, respectively.

    Good programming will always win. The cast, the production, the cinematography. and the music were all first class. Emmy nominations are guaranteed.

    Paxton played a great crying drunk that eventually set himself on fire.

    Had a lot of potential to be good but was highly underwhelming.

    The "romance" angle catering to the Twilight crowd with the prettyboy blonde himbo/horrible actor ruined the show every time it focused on him (and it did it often) and his stupid ass.

    to be fair, that romance was a huge part of the historic feud. sorry there wasn't enough car crashes & explosions, maybe try transformers next time.:facepalm:

    Great ratings for the show - sort of the opposite of a slow build.

    Go fuck yourself, douche.

    It wasn't Lonesome Dove or Deadwood.

    It was fucking lame.

    And it's really sad when all of the best performances in it were actually given by British actors.

    And the prettboy blonde who's "history" you care so much about looked like a fucking mutant in real life.

    I bet you can't wait for the next Twilight or Hunger Games movie though.....huh, clownshoe?
