The ‘Outlander’ Audience Keeps Growing

Outlander 2014

With a new series, sometimes you see the audience or viewers decrease after the first episode, usually because the show isn’t very good.  The exact opposite is happening with Outlander.  The audience has grown with every episode.  That means the word is spreading about this critically-acclaimed series.

The third episode had the largest audience so far.  1.003 million viewers watched the first showing of the third episode.  1.7 million watched it Saturday night, and 2.39 million watched it during the weekend.

Also, 62% of the viewers were women during the 9 PM premiere, and women made up 60% of the total viewers for all the Saturday showings.

Let’s hope the trend continues to through the eighth episode.
