I'm kind of curious what kind of ratings FX expects out of a show like this. It looks very well made but the subject matter looks like a hard sell.

Usually I would be all over FX programs and I enjoy most of Murphy's work, but this show doesn't interest me at all. That trailer didn't sell me on it either. I really doubt this subject will appeal to many, especially in this forum.

I would probably have watched at least one episode if they hadn't fired Tatiana Maslany. Now...eh. Murphy is hit and miss for me.

This will rate as high as Ryan Mutphys “Katrina” series. Which is to say, nothing at all.

Thought this was pretty good. However, the 90-120 minute premieres/finales and/or double episode premieres/finales trend needs to end. Not needed.

I really wish all networks would ban that practice but apparently it works for their advertisers. Many shows are "pre-sold" to advertisers and the first airing almost always gets the highest ratings. So I don't expect the trend to disappear.

0.2 in the demo, 688,000 viewers for the premiere.

Roughly on par w/ Legion S2's first episode.

I was bored. Not sure I really cared about any of the characters. I don’t see it surviving.

Very surprised. But I guess FX wants to hold on to as much Murphy as they can before he leaves for Netflix.

Nice to hear. This is good stuff. Episodes are still running a bit long, though.

The last time I checked ratings this had just pulled a 0.19 demo rating. It's now pulling about 0.3 an episode which isn't unreasonable for Live+SD for a cable show.

It's doing much better than Legion (whose Season 2 finale pulled a 0.12)

Plus I think it's pulled on new advertiser(s), every time I watch the Simpsons on FXX now every other ad is for the HIV-prevention pill, which started around the same time as Pose.

All that said, I still haven't watched any of this, any good?

Re: Pose (FX) -- created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk



The ten-episode second season of Pose will debut on Tuesday, June 11 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on FX. Pose explores the juxtaposition of several segments of life and society: the underground ball culture, the rise of the luxury Trump-era universe and the downtown social and literary scene that came to define New York in the 1980s. The first season of Pose was named an AFI TV Program of the Year and earned two Golden Globe(R) nominations and a Writers Guild of America nomination. Season 2 flashes forward in time to 1990. On the heels of the ballroom community establishing itself in pop culture and going mainstream, the House of Evangelista is forced to reevaluate their goals. Meanwhile, the AIDS crisis worsens and the reaction from a group of activists reaches a fever pitch.

Re: Pose (FX) -- created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk

Always wanted to see this but i don't have regular cable/sat. S1 is on Hulu or Netflix so hoping to watch soon and will watch s2 next year when it hits streaming. I'm a big Billy Porter fan.

But yeah, wouldn't expect many here to follow this show.

Wasn't expecting to like this as much as I did. Looking forward to Season 2.
