Winning: Halle Berry’s ‘Extant’ Blasts Off With Great Ratings

Published: Thursday 10th Jul 2014 by Sam

Having achieved ample success on the big screen, Halle Berry is tasting the rewards of the small screen too with new show ‘Extant’.

The ambitious series, which follows the life of an infertile astronaut who returns to earth pregnant after a year long stint in space, kicked off on CBS yesterday and commanded a large audience in the process.

Details on the show’s excellent debut below…

According to Nielsen, the Steven Spielberg produced series averaged a 1.7 rating/6 share in adults 18-49 and 9.4 million viewers overall in the 9 o’clock hour.

The figure saw the show serve as the second most watched in Wednesday’s primetime slot – just behind Big Brother. {Source}


Yes, yes, and yes. The debut episode served entertainment in abundance, hence it’s great to see it being rewarded as such. Moving forward, it’ll have the challenge of maintaining the momentum. Here’s hoping it does, as the concept has a lot of mileage.
