USA's 'Political Animals' Sees Relatively Steady Ratings in Week 2
After a rather soft debut for the highly publicized miniseries, the second outing suffers only a small dip.
Political Animals may not be the ratings juggernaut some may have predicted, but it is shaping up to be consistent.
After last week's soft debut of the six-part miniseries, the second outing only fell by roughly 300,000 viewers. Sunday's episode of the Sigourney Weaver family drama earned 2.3 million viewers.
In the demos, the one-hour episode pulled 597,000 viewers among adults 18-49 and 691,000 among adults 25-54.
Last Sunday's series premiere brought in 2.6 million viewers over its slightly extended broadcast at 10 p.m., with 675,000 falling into the adults 18-49 demo and 834,000 among adults 25-54.
Though billed as a "limited series event," the door is open for an additional order -- much as the network did with minis The Starter Wife and The 4400 -- should numbers see a boost. (In 2007, The Starter Wife mini bowed to 5.39 million before taking a significant hit when debuting as a series.)
