This one's a bit tough for me because I don't really pay attention to ratings, but after a little research (if you can call checking Wikipedia research) I decided upon this one:
This is a tremendous black comedy made by CBS and shown on Showtime in the states which follows the misadventures of Jackie Peyton, played by Edie Falco, a nurse addicted to painkillers who nonetheless does her utmost to get her patients the best possible care.
I don't really understand how a show that always gets around 1 million viewers carries on to a fourth season, but I'm guessing that's good for a premium cable channel. However where I really do wish more people were watching it was here in the UK. It used to be shown on the BBC at such rubbish times that I never got to watch it when it was on, so I can understand why it hadn't done that well here for the first two seasons. It's now being shown on Sky Atlantic now BSkyB bought the UK rights for it. I just hope that:
- Sky is treating it better, and
- It's finally getting the viewing figures it deserves.
