Based on impressive TV ratings, Watchmen is HBO’s most-watched new series since Big Little Lies.
Watchmen is already one of the most critically acclaimed shows of the year and among the greatest comic book TV shows of all-time. Earlier this year, HBO ended their biggest program in Game of Thrones. Many thought Watchmen would fill Game of Thrones‘ shoes as HBO’s next blockbuster series. However, there has been internet gossip that Watchmen hasn’t been performing as well as HBO hoped.
Watchmen appears to be doing just fine with its ratings so far according to a new report from Variety. The Hollywood trade dropped some numbers on how well Watchmen has been performing in its first season. Sunday’s Watchmen episode drew in 779,000 viewers in Nielsen’s Live+Same Day ratings, the most since the premiere’s 799,000 viewers. With HBO Now, GO, and other platforms, that number grew to over 1.2 million viewers on Sunday. Watchmen is also drawing an average of 7.1 million viewers through seven episodes. These ratings not only make Watchmen HBO’s most popular new series of the year, it’s also the most-watched new series since Big Little Lies. HBO also added that these numbers only reflect 10% of Watchmen‘s audience.
Watchmen showrunner Damon Lindelof has said that the series wasn’t designed with a second season in mind. With the series doing well, do you want to see a season two? Comment below!
Here is the official synopsis for HBO’s Watchmen:
Set in an alternate history where “superheroes” are treated as outlaws, WATCHMEN embraces the nostalgia of the original groundbreaking graphic novel while attempting to break new ground of its own.
Watchmen stars Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, Jean Smart, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Hong Chau, Andrew Howard, Tom Mison, Frances Fisher, Jacob Ming-Trent, Sara Vickers, Dylan Schombing, and James Wolk. The series is produced for HBO by White Rabbit in association with Warner Bros. Television, based on Alan Moore’s graphic novel co-created and illustrated by Dave Gibbons and published by DC.
Watchmen airs Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.
