TNT Gives Falling Skies a 1UP
If you were concerned about this amazing show getting cancelled on you early, have no fear for at least there will be two seasons of Falling Skies! After three episodes the show has claimed the top slot as the #1 new series of 2011.
Falling Skies premiered in the U.S. on TNT Sunday, June 19, drawing an extraordinary Live + 7 audience of 8 million viewers and ranking it as cable’s top series launch of 2011. The premiere also garnered an impressive 3.8 million adults 18-49 and 4.5 million adults 25-54. Through its first three installments, Falling Skies has averaged more than 6.4 million viewers through a blend of live and time-shifted viewing.
Falling Skies is quickly becoming a global television sensation. In the opening stages of its rollout in more than 75 international markets, it has already drawn strong – and in some cases record – audience deliveries for networks airing it in the United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Venezuela.
I can’t wait to see what the rest of this season brings, and now that I know there is a season 2 already in the can I’m very, very excited about what might happen.
