I’ll keep this simple: You should be watching The Americans, the proverbial Best Show on TV.

Because not enough of you are.

Wednesday’s The Americans was the series’ least-watched and lowest-rated broadcast on record. The episode, which was the fifth of the ongoing third season, drew a paltry 0.19 adults 18-49 rating with 811,000 viewers. Down considerably from last week’s episode, which drew a series low 0.24 rating and a low viewership average of 972,000 viewers, the episode continues the ratings woes for FX’s most critically acclaimed offering.

It’s a show about sexy spies doing sexy things, with wigs and intrigue and great music and a teenage daughter who isn’t Dana Brody and violence and 69’ing. Maybe that’s the problem. The Americans is too vague a title. For the rest of Season 3, and hopefully into Season 4, FX should start promoting the series as The Show Where Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys 69.

Also, add it to Netflix, please.
