    ‘Falling Skies’ Season One Finale Snags Good Ratings | Screen Rant

    ‘Falling Skies’ Season One Finale Snags Good Ratings
    Aug 9, 2011 by Michael Crider Like16

    The ‘Falling Skies’ finale Sunday night was the most-watched episode since the June premiere, scoring over 5 million viewers. That makes it the most successful new show on basic cable.


    Falling Skies has been a surprise hit on TNT, a fact that’s become even more apparent as the numbers for the feature-length finale have come in. The two-hour episode netted 5.6 million viewers, according to a press release from the network.

    That makes the finale the most-watched episode since the premiere on June 19th, which scored slightly better at 5.9 million viewers (and a full 8 million in the Live +7 ratings). Falling Skies has averaged 4.8 million viewers across the 10-episode freshman season, numbers to make any cable show (and many broadcast shows) jealous. About 50% of viewers are watching on DVR devices, so the finale’s ratings should increase significantly when the +7 ratings come in two weeks.




    The genre show is also performing surprisingly well in the all-important 18-49 demographic: 2.5 million viewers of Sunday night’s finale fell in the range. With that, Falling Skies is the best-performing new basic cable show this year. TNT renewed the show after its fourth episode, and Season 2 is currently scheduled for another 10-episode run next summer.

    The show’s success is even more surprising given its unashamedly sci-fi premise. Science fiction shows have been falling left and right for the last year: No Ordinary Family, V, The Event, Caprica, Stargate Universe… it’s refreshing to see a genre show get a good jump out of the gate.



    Audience reactions to Falling Skies have been mostly positive, with critical reactions to match. If for no other reason, a good chunk of the viewership will probably return next year just to find out what happened after the impressive finale cliffhanger.

    Falling Skies is also making a splash on international television. According to TNT, the show is the best-performing launch ever for parent company Turner in Spain, Germany and Austria, with strong performances in the UK, Australia and Germany. The series launched almost simultaneously in over a hundred markets.

    At least TNT will give a show a chance until the SyFy Channel.

    Season 2 Summer 2012

    'Falling Skies' Season 2: Watch The First 3 Minutes Of The Premiere (VIDEO)


    Falling Skies Season 2 Preview
    "Falling Skies" Season 2 premieres in June.

    "Falling Skies" Season 2 won't premiere on TNT until Sun., June 17 at 9 p.m. ET, but you don't have to wait any longer for your first sneak peek. In the new Season 2 preview, which was originally screened at Emerald City Comiccon, viewers pick up with Tom (Noah Wyle) walking aboard the alien ship, willingly.

    What happens next? Fast forward three months later and the rebel faction is still going strong. We don't want to give too much away, but watch the video below for more.

    Created by Robert Rodat and executive produced by Steven Spielberg, "Falling Skies" stars Wyle and Moon Bloodgood as members of a human rebel force battling alien invaders. The first season of "Falling Skies" closed to an audience of 5.5 million viewers and 5.9 million viewers tuned in for the premiere, which is not a bad retention rate at all.


    PS: the premiere is 2 hours long.

    How did I not join this thread last year? (And why do I seem to remember discussing it here???? - old-timer's here I come!)

    Anyhoo - I digress.... I am so excited for the new season of Falling Skies. LOVED the 2 minute teaser clip and will be front and center on June 17th.

    This was my favorite summer show last year (even over True Blood! *Gasp*)

    So glad the show is back. The scenes with them pulling that thing out of his eye...ugh. Curious to see where the story goes this season.
