Will ‘The Killing’ Premiere Kill It in the Ratings? – Poll (Updated w/Ratings)
Update: Overall the guesses in the poll were too optimistic. In preliminary ratings The Killing drew 1.8 million viewers and a 0.4 adults 18-49 rating vs. 1.8 million and a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating in its season 2 premiere.
Tonight, season three of The Killing premieres on AMC. The show was cancelled after season two, then AMC reconsidered. While the show received a fair amount of critical acclaim, the ratings were never strong. But this season the show is jumping on the serial killer bandwagon instead of just focusing on Rosie Larsen’s murder, which may add some excitement. It will certainly up the body count. The season two finale in June 2012 earned a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating. How do you think the premiere will fare tonight? Make your predictions.
