‘Atlanta’ Season 2 Premieres to Modest Ratings

Published: Tuesday 6th Mar 2018 by Rashad

March 1st brought with it the highly anticipated return of FX’s breakout series, ‘Atlanta.’ 

The brainchild of Donald Glover (who also leads the cast and nabbed an Emmy for the show’s inaugural season), the comedy’s sophomore season launch ended a 5 month wait for fans who’ve longed to learn the latest of Brian Tyree Henry and co.

With its season 1 premiere episode nabbing an impressive 1.08 million viewers for the network, tuck in to see how viewership stacked up for round 2 (dubbed  ‘Atlanta Robbin Season’).

Viewership = 851,000

Though Glover’s star has risen considerably since ‘Atlanta’s onset, the ratings for its season 2 kick off did not seem to reflect the reported hype around its return.  By no means a loss, however, because the figures are not only in line with its season 1 finale (which drew 786,000 viewers), but also came rank it the second highest viewed scripted program for its hour.

Here’s hoping the season’s numbers only increase as time goes on as ‘Atlanta’ is easily one of today’s more qualitative offerings on cable TV.

    The Scandal/Murder crossover probably hurt the target demographic
