Last night's two hour premiere of Falling Skies drew 5.9 million viewers and 2.6 million adults 18-49, which works out to a 2.0 adults 18-49 . While that's easily ahead of the 5.2 million viewers for the premiere, scored a 2.7 adults 18-49 rating, or 35% better with the advertising-coveted adults 18-49.
The numbers for Falling Skies still weren't shabby, but it looks like post-apocalyptic zombies > post-apocalyptic aliens with viewers under 50. But the big question is how it will do in its second week in its normal 10pm time slot. For comparative purposes,dropped a couple of tenths in its second week to a 2.5 adults 18-49 rating.
