As we all know, the Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether the TV show The Purge is cancelled or renewed for season two. Unfortunately, most of us do not live in Nielsen households. Because many viewers feel frustration when their viewing habits and opinions aren't considered, we'd like to offer you the chance to rate all of the season one episodes of The Purge below.

The Purge: Season One Ratings

While some cable networks strike gold with hit TV series, usually cable shows just don't draw the same sort of audience the big broadcast networks do. Although USA Network originally ordered the new TV show, The Purge, the thriller is also going to be rerun at times on its sister-station Syfy. Will running it on two NBC-Universal owned networks help it draw a larger audience, or at least minimize the cost to one network, or will viewers just be confused? Will The Purge be cancelled or renewed for season two? Stay tuned. *Status update below.

The Purge Episode 8 Review: The Giving Time Is Here

The Purge proves once again that anti-gun zones fail to stop gun violence and being a pacifist won't save you when it's kill or be killed.

This The Purge review contains spoilers.

The Purge Episode 8

Like Penelope and Miguel, I am a Purge survivor. No, really! If you'll indulge me my inner Sophia Petrillo, picture it: Louisville, 2014.

It's a hot August day, when fliers start appearing on telephone poles around town. The leering face of the masked man from the original Purge film dominates the flier, which promises “Louisvilles The Purge” from 8:00 Pm until 6:30 Am. In hindsight, it seems silly, but at the time, it was taken seriously as a real threat. Five months earlier, a mob of 200 teenagers formed up at a major park on the city waterfront. The group rampaged up and down major streets, beating, robbing, and vandalizing property before the incident dispersed. Several people were hospitalized.

The Purge Episode 7 Review: Lovely Dark and Deep

Ronald Hogan Oct 16, 2018

The Purge feels like an event in its quick-moving seventh episode.

This The Purge review contains spoilers.

The Purge Episode 7

I appreciate The Purge's commitment to old-fashioned stunt work more than perhaps anything else about the show. After all, there aren't many movies that would light a guy on fire, then send him down a zip line, let alone a television show. The only thing I appreciate more than a “guy on fire” scene is an unbroken long take tracking shot, like the stairway fight in The Protector or the incredible raid sequence in True Detective. The fire-flight isn't as long as when Alec Holland gets set on fire in Swamp Thing, but there's got to be points for degree of difficulty, plus there's no way to put the guy out when he's in the middle of the zip line, so he has to ride all the

Stars: Colin Woodell, Betty Gabriel, Rebecca Rittenhouse, Andrew Lees, Chelsea Alden, Stephanie Nogueras, Alexa Mansour, Savira Windyani, Ashton Smiley, Douglas Tait, Connor Del Rio | Written and Directed by Stephen Susco

When a 20-something finds a cache of hidden files on his new laptop, he and his friends are unwittingly thrust into the depths of the dark web. They soon discover someone has been watching their every move and will go to unimaginable lengths to protect the dark web. Unfolding in real-time, Unfriended: Dark Web is the sequel nobody wanted to the 2014 predecessor that nobody cared for, ultimately and inevitably creating a franchise that’s here to stay.

The 21stCentury evolution of horror is beginning to take form in the realm of the online, concerning social media and the implications it forms towards abusers and users. The topic and theme in question is rife with depth and subversion, utilised well in

Karen Gillan Joins Harrison Ford in Call Of The Wild

Karen Gillan has joined Harrison Ford and Dan Stevens in the film adaptation of Jack London’s classic 1903 novel Call of the Wild. Omar Sy and Colin Woodell have also been cast in the film.

The story focuses on prospector John Thornton as he treks across the Canadian Yukon during the Klondike Gold Rush. Ford is taking on the role of Thornton. Gillan will play a character named Mercedes, and we still don’t know who Stevens is playing.

Mercedes is the only female character in the book and she represents a bunch of gender stereotypes from that era. In the book she's weak, impractical, self-centered, overly sentimental and emotional. She spend most of her time crying and complaining. It Makes me wonder if they are going to change her character for this film and instead make her a strong female character.

The movie is going to be a CGI

Fall TV Preview: The 30 Most Interesting New Shows of 2018
As the film world’s awards season heats up, audiences are already anticipating new projects starring Sean Penn, Emma Stone, Julia Roberts, Jim Carrey, Toni Collette, Michael Douglas, and Benicio del Toro.

Of course, all of those projects happen to be TV series, and they’re part of what’s shaping up to be perhaps the most ambitious fall TV season ever. A lot has been made of TV’s current reboot/remake/reunion culture, and that’s definitely a trend this fall. Some of the season’s most anticipated new shows include CBS’ return to “Murphy Brown,” and what ABC has in store for “The Conners,” the spin-off of “Roseanne” that comes thanks to Twitter.

The fall also includes several adaptations, including Netflix’s “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina,” Amazon’s TV take on the successful podcast “Homecoming,” starring Roberts (and from Sam Esmail), and AMC’s next limited series

The Purge Review: Lower Your Expectations and Have Fun

  • TVfanatic
As a big fan of The Purge franchise, word of a series based on it piqued my interest.

Watching the first three installments of USA Network's 10-episode event series doesn't take me to expected places, nor does it take me to unexpected, for that matter.

Instead, The Purge series is, as of the third installment, traipsing through probably 13 hours of a run-of-the-mill Purge night (albeit warmer than others), with an expectation of a higher degree of people on the streets.

I'm not like other people. If I had been given this opportunity to examine the Purge in ten hours, I would have looked a little further into what makes America different as a result of the Purge. 

Yes, I like my entertainment to make me think and examine the broader issues. The Purge could be a relevant social conversation, but as it's mostly focused on the violence of the night.

‘The Purge’ Boss Breaks Down Series Politics, Violence, and Flashbacks

  • Variety
The most recent “Purge” movie may have flashed back to show the origins of the frightening ritual, but the USA television series of the same name won’t be as political.

The New Founding Fathers of America (Nffa) are still a part of the show, most notably through the character of Albert Stanton (Reed Diamond), who is an architect of this new world order. But “for everybody else, it’s background noise,” says showrunner Thomas Kelly. “This is the world they live in.”

The show is set a decade after that first purge, and so the core characters have just gotten used to it as a part of their lives. The majority of them try to ignore it and go about their lives without giving into any “purge” urges.

“We all love to write villains, it’s fun, but for us the purge is the villain, so we really wanted

TV Review: ‘The Purge’ on USA

TV Review: ‘The Purge’ on USA
The “Purge” movies — of which there have been four so far — make for an appealing morality play. They depict an America in which all criminal impulses are expiated during twelve hours during which all crime is legal, a state of affairs whose illogic is practically the point. It’s not meant to be believable, really, but it’s meant to spark realistic responses from characters we can cheer or boo, and to create the opportunity to rack up increasingly grotesque kills.

Those two guiding principles of “The Purge” franchise — using a lawless environment to create sympathetic situations for likable characters, and piling up bodies killed gruesomely — collide once again in USA’s new TV adaptation. This limited series follows various players in an annual Purge, including a couple who drop in on a party for the well-heeled, who spend the Purge safely ensconced and celebrating evil; a corporate partner on lockdown,
