And again outdid NBC’s The Listener!
The second episode of USA’s Royal Pains actually improved on its debut, growing in both the P18-49 and P25-54 demographics. That is a first for a scripted show on USA.
Royal Pains drew 2.35 million viewers 18-49 Thursday, up 2% from last week, and 2.6 million P25-54, up 3%. The episode drew 5.6 million total viewers, on par with last week’s premiere.
Burn Notice drew 2.43 million adults 25-54 and 2.17 million 18-49s, both of which accounted for a 14 percent decline versus last week’s demo deliveries. While viewers 18-34 are not a target demo, Burn Notice took its most significant hit among that younger segment, averaging 878,000, down 27 percent versus its season opener (1.2 million).
