Ratings: ‘Queen Sugar’ Opens to Premiere Low with Season 6

Published: Monday 13th Sep 2021 by Rashad

It’s arguable that ‘Queen Sugar’ ratings took a noticeable dip between the finale of its fourth season and premiere of its fifth due an extended, year-and-a-half absence from screens.

Luckily, fans didn’t have to wait nearly as long for the kick off of the critically acclaimed series’ sixth swing at bat, which premiered September 7 (just five months after its predecessor waved farewell to viewers).

While stability proved to be an upside of the swift return, the figures attached to the season 6 premiere still rank as the show’s lowest to date.

Details inside:

Despite cable TV ratings domination from the likes of multiple news and reality TV programming, the ‘Queen Sugar’ season 6 premiere ranked #43 on the list of 150 highest-rated cable shows that aired Tuesday. Among all scripted programs, ‘Queen Sugar’ ranked #3 in viewership (#1 for its hour).

Only BET’s ‘Tyler Perry’s The Oval’ and FX’s ‘ACS: Impeachment’ garnered more eyes.

Although a far cry from numbers historically associated with the ‘Queen’ season premieres, Tuesday’s figures – which match the show’s season 5 send off – should be considered a contextual win.

Look below to see how all season premieres rank.

‘Queen Sugar’ Season Premiere Viewership

Season 1 (2016): 2.69 million

Season 2 (2017): 2.31 million

Season 3 (2018): 1.48 million

    Queen sugar is trash. It’s the same recycled story line of racism and police brutality season after season. Yawnnnnnnn. Black people go through other things.
