Sunday cable ratings: ‘Power’ Season 3 premiere sets a record for Starz

power-s3-premiere-ratings

“Power” lived up to its name with its third-season premiere Sunday, setting an all-time viewership record for a Starz original series.

The show, which kicked of Starz’s move of originals from Saturday to Sunday nights, drew 2.26 million viewers for its Season 3 debut. That beats the channel’s previous record for an original series — the Season 2 finale of “Power” (1.54 million viewers) last season. The second-season opener of “Outlander” had the previous premiere record of 1.46 million viewers.

The premiere was also No. 1 among adults 18-49 on cable for the night, scoring a 1.1 rating.

Also Sunday, HBO’s “Ballers” opened its second season with a 0.8 in the demo, down from 1.1 for its series premiere last year. “The Night Of” (0.5) was up two tenths of a point from its premiere, and “Vice Principals” debuted to a 0.5.
