FX’s new series “Snowfall” got off to a decent start Wednesday, posting ratings in line with recent series and season debuts on the channel.

“Snowfall” earned a 0.6 rating among adults 18-49, in line with the series debuts of “Taboo” (0.6) and “Legion” (0.7) last season and ahead of “Feud” (0.5) and “Fargo” Season 3 (0.4). Its 1.36 million viewers, however, were the lowest of that group.

“Alaskan Bush People” was the top-rated original Wednesday with a 0.7, up a tenth from last week. It also led the day in viewers with 2.9 million. “The Real Housewives of New York City” (0.6) was also up a tenth, while “Queen Sugar” held steady at 0.4 for OWN. “Younger” (0.2) slipped out of the top 25.
