One thing that wasn't getting better, at least earlier this season, was the ratings — the show's season three premiere (which came after a long break caused in large part by the writers' strike) drew just 1.2 million viewers. But The Hollywood Reporter notes that the show's grown in the ratings each week since then, and the show's currently averaging about 5 million viewers a week once all the repeat airings are taken into account.
The show's excited co-creators gave E! a statement celebrating the good news, making the following promise to fans:
As season three continues they'll forget about the time they waited and get caught up in our best season ever. And we also swear we won't make them wait as long next year.
Well, that sounds promising. Tell me: Are you excited that there's more Big Love on the way in 2010?
