Cablemetrics: Mr. Robot, Suits, The Night Of, Tyrant


These numbers are current through Wednesday, July 13.

WHAT MATTERS:
  • The double-episode return of USA's heavily-acclaimed Mr. Robot averaged a 0.43 demo, narrowly dodging the 0.42 season low from last year and not far behind the 0.46 season premiere and finale.
    • There are a couple ways of looking at this. The natural reaction is probably: "Boy, all that hype did nothing for the ratings!" The way I look at it is two-fold: first, being down 7% year-to-year is a really good trend on cable nowadays. But I'm also kinda cautious because there's a lingering possibility that the hype did do something for the ratings, and this 0.43 is actually inflated compared with what's to come. If it holds up as well post-premiere as it did last year, I think USA's gonna be pretty happy. But let's wait a week and see if that happens.
  • Leading into Robot was the less-ballyhooed but more-watched return of Suits (0.53) at 9/8c, down by an also healthy-for-cable 13% year-to-year. Another point in defense of Robot is that it brings a considerably different audience to the network: Suits had a very close to 50/50 gender split (0.55 W18-49 / 0.52 M18-49) while Robot nearly matched Suits in M18-49 (0.51) but had less than two-thirds retention in W18-49 (0.36).
  • Another critical favorite came on the scene three days earlier in the miniseries The Night Of, another soft HBO drama launch at 0.27. That's a teeny bit better than Vinyl's infamously weak 0.25 start, but that's not saying much. It should be interesting to see what this lead-in does this Sunday for the return of comedy Ballers, which did legitimately well last year after True Detective.
    • In a post-Game of Thrones world, the Sunday ratings juice continued to flow away from HBO and into AMC's Preacher (0.55), TNT's The Last Ship (0.62) and Showtime's Ray Donovan (0.35), which all had upticks again this week.
  • And FX brought back perennial bubble drama Tyrant last week with a 0.27, then saw it stumble to a 0.19 this week.
