Friday night airings, including the debut at 9PM et/pt (930,000), and subsequent 10PM (469,000) and 11PM (443,000) re-airings, generated about 1.84 million Live+SD, P2+ viewers.

The weekend performance was in line with the 2.7 million Live+SD P2+ viewers that viewed the season finale to “Spartacus: Vengeance” during its premiere weekend this past April.  “Spartacus: Vengeance,” averaged more than 6 million viewers across multi-platform viewing, including DVR and on-demand.
