  1. That is interesting that ANW matched last week’s number even with the direct competition from the NBA.

  2. The writers of Wayward Pines did a pretty good job of rebooting the show without making it overly confusing and actually connecting to season 1. With that said, with these ratings, it doesn’t deserve to go beyond this.
