The Season 6 premiere of “Homeland” on Jan. 15 posted uncharacteristically low ratings, with a 0.3 in adults 18-49 and 1.08 million viewers. Showtime had made the premiere available on demand a few weeks early, which may have drawn some fans away from the on-air debut.

The show’s numbers on Sunday seem to put some weight behind that notion. Episode 2 of “Homeland” jumped to a 0.5 in adults 18-49 and 1.45 million viewers, in line with its Season 5 average.

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” held onto the No. 1 spot with a 1.0 in adults 18-49. The Season 3 finale of “The Librarians” posted a 0.5, up a tenth from the previous week. “Alaska: The Last Frontier” (2.74 million) led the day in total viewers.

“The Young Pope,” meanwhile, slipped further out of the Top 100 with a 0.2 and 681,000 viewers.
