After much anticipation, Yellowstone‘s fifth season kicked off with a two-hour premiere on Sunday (November 13). Since Yellowstone is one of the most popular shows on TV at the moment, the premiere was guaranteed to draw in millions of viewers.
But it turns out that more people watched the Season 5 premiere than anyone likely expected!
Ratings show that over 12.1 million people tuned in to the Yellowstone premiere. Hollywood Reporter broke down the numbers:
- 8.8 million viewers tuned in to the first broadcast on Paramount Network.
- When you add in the viewers who watched on simulcast airings on CMT, TV Land, and Pop, then 10.3 million viewers tuned in.
- Once you factor in those who watched encore presentations, the total number of viewers equals 12.1 million.
That’s a staggering total…and it’s also a record-breaking one.
As Hollywood Reporter details, the Season 5 premiere of Yellowstone was “the biggest overnight launch yet for the Kevin Costner neo-Western.” On top of that, the Season 5 premiere now ranks as the top scripted series premiere of 2022.
Hollywood Reporter further explained how the series saw immense growth:
“The series was also up double digits in all demos, including growing 52 percent among adults 18-34 and delivering a cumulative 5.6 rating among adults 18-49.”
