Falling Skies Premieres to Big Ratings

falling-skies-premiereTNT premiered its newest show last night. Falling Skies is produced by Steven Spielberg and stars Noah Wylie. The good news for fans of the show is that Falling Skies did extremely well in the ratings.

According to TNT and Nielson, more than 5.9 million people tuned into the premiere of the show. TNT boasts that:

  • The two-hour premiere of Falling Skies, sponsored by Hyundai, delivered 5,905,000 viewers, ranking it as cable’s #1 new series launch for 2011-to-date.
  • Falling Skies also ranks as cable’s biggest scripted series debut since last year’s record-breaking launch of TNT’s Rizzoli & Isles (7.6 million on July 12, 2010). Falling Skies outperformed such high-profile launches as USA’s Covert Affairs (4.9 million viewers — July 13, 2010) and AMC’s The Walking Dead (5.3 million — Oct. 31, 2010).
  • Among TNT’s key demos, Falling Skies averaged an outstanding 2,643,000 adults 18-49 and 3,240,000 adults 25-54. The show’s delivery of adults 25-54 makes it cable’s top series launch for the year-to-date.

TNT was clearly pleased about the reception for the new show: ‘The enormous success of Falling Skies demonstrates what can happen when you partner with the best people in the business and give them what they need to do their very best work,’said Michael Wright, executive vice president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). This certainly bodes well for the possibility of the show being renewed for a second season.

Beginning this Sunday, Falling Skies will air in its regular timeslot of 10:00 p.m., following the season premiere of Leverage.
