‘Queen Sugar’s 2-Night Season 3 Premiere a Ratings Winner

Published: Saturday 2nd Jun 2018 by Rashad

It looks like fans couldn’t wait to find out the latest happenings of Bordelon family on OWN’s critically acclaimed breakout series, ‘Queen Sugar.’

The Ava Duvernay-directed hit show – led by “Ralph Angel” (Kofi Siriboe), “Charley” (Dawn-Lyen Gardner) and “Nova” (Rutina Wesley) – has been a consistent ratings winner since its 2016 debut.  The long-awaited, two-night season 3 premiere (which aired May 29 and May 30 respectively) reaffirmed that consistency.

Curious to see just how many people tuned into OWN Tuesday and Wednesday night?  Details inside:

May 29 ratings:  1.48 million

With nearly 1.5 million viewers glued to their screens on May 29, ‘Queen Sugar’ ranked as Tuesday’s #1 show on cable for its hour.  It ranked #2 for the night overall (among scripted programming), coming second only to OWN’s flagship franchise, ‘Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots.’

May 30 Ratings:  1.04 million viewers

Despite a dip in ratings for night 2, Wednesday’s ratings still pulled in a commendable 1.04 million viewers.  For its hour, the show ranked as the #1 scripted cable program.
