‘Power Book II: Ghost’ Premiere a Ratings Winner for STARZ

Published: Wednesday 9th Sep 2020 by Rashad

Nearly 7 months after the original crew of STARZ most beloved series, ‘Power,’ bid adieu to its legion of devoted fans, its newest incarnation – ‘Power Book II: Ghost’ – roared onto screens to pick up where it left off.

With a cast led by Michael Rainey Jr. and Naturi Naughton, the franchise’s second chapter welcomed music icons Method Man and Mary J. Blige (among a host of other new faces) to its roster.

If the viewership figures that accompanied its September 6 premiere are any indication, fans couldn’t wait to get a taste of the newness that awaited.

See what we mean inside:

Viewership = 680,000

A solid start for the Courtney A. Kemp-created spinoff, the show placed #1 among all scripted series for cable.  A nod to its popularity, ‘Power Book: II’ is in fact the only scripted series listed in the top 25 most viewed programs for Sunday.

With all other forms of programming considered (reality, news, sports, etc.), it ranked #7 – a feat all the more noteworthy considering STARZ is a premium network going head to head with the likes of more widely available cable outlets.

As we reported here, ‘Power Book II’ is the first of four spinoffs stemming from the original ‘Power’ (toplined by Omari Hardwick).
