It appears FX has another hit comedy series on its hands. The first episode ratings for Denis Leary’s new sitcom Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll just pulled in some of the biggest Live + 3 days ratings in the network’s history.
A total of 867,000 viewers tuned into watch the July 16 premiere episode. Add on the DVR ratings of live + 3 days and that number has jumped 57% bringing the total numbers of the premiere episode to 1.36 million. Demo breakdowns are just as impressive as L+3 brings 710,000 in the 18-49 demo.
Thursday night is always a crowded night for television, even in the summer. S&D&R&R getting a nice boost in DVR ratings shows the interest from people to watch the show. Congrats all around to Leary, his team at Apostle, and all involved in the show.
