STARZ Original series Magic City’s weekend Live+SD viewership has climbed 26% since the premiere.  Sure, it’s no Spartacus, and equally sure, it was renewed for a second season before the first season premiered, so it might not matter much, but up is up!

“Magic City” continued its viewership climb for the episode 5 premiere weekend, with 1.327M Live+SD viewers for May 4-6. This represents a 26.4% increase since the first season premiered the weekend of April 6th.
