The good news? Per comments from FX’s president John Landgraf, “The Americans” seems like a lock for a third season renewal.

The bad news? For the second consecutive week and third time this season, the series watched its viewership plunge.

Down from last week’s 1.21 million, this week’s edition of “The Americans” settled for an average audience of 1.18 million.

Like last week’s episode, the broadcast averaged a soft 0.4 adults 18-49 rating.
