Bates Motel

Tonight, the much hyped new drama series Bates Motel premieres on A&E. The question is whether it will be the next big cable hit. For comparison, The Americans premiered to a 1.2 adults 18-49 on January 30, rating while the series premiere of Longmire, A&E's most recent scripted drama, garnered  a 0.8 adults 18-49 rating last June.  How do you think Bates Motel will fare? Make your prediction below.

    No more than a 1.1 – touch competition tonight.

    Where is Once Upon A Time’s poll ?

  • Jeff (Canada)

    This is literally the first time I’ve even heard of this show. Maybe I’ll give it a shot tonight.

  • Holly


    It was up yesterday, before the episode aired, which only seems logical. It still shows up in the side bar of recent posts.

    It’s available On Demand but I don’t think many know that. I think the first ep will get those who are curious, but it also kinda sucks so I predict the 2 ep will see a big drop.

  • erwan from france

    I think it will do over 2.0.. I have seen this commercial everytime I basically turn on the tv..

  • Jenny

    I’d say 1.7-2.0 looks like a great show.

  • john

    I watched it on demand and I liked it very much. I hope it gets a 2.0

  • brian

    2.1. I think this’ll be the next big hit.

  • Ji (g)


  • John

    This is the first time i hear about this show, however I really like it’s premise so I definitely will check it out.
    But to be honest I don’t think it will be a hit, it could get big ratings for premiere but will drop a lot in next weeks.

  • American

    Lower than 1.5, definitely.

  • DW

    wow its all over in the theaters and on popcorn bags , comcast has been promoting it on demand and they have the first episode up. i’m going 1.8 its so good. i hope its the next big thing.

  • Dan S

    I’m being a bit optimistic & guessing 1.5-1.7. For those not hearing about it where have you been ? It’s been heavily promoted on the networks & has a preview in movie theaters. Even though it’s a prequel it’s set in contemporary times so it’s not going to be set in the 40’s. It’s from the producers of Lost with a top notch cast. I think this show will do well for A&E.

    Rating? Don’t know.
    Pilot was amazing, though.
