“Bates Motel” Ratings Rebound from Series Low

After setting series lows for two consecutive broadcasts, A&E’s “Bates Motel” finally enjoyed a ratings uptick.

Monday’s episode delivered an improved 0.9 adults 18-49 rating with 2.23 million viewers.

Up considerably from last week’s 0.7 with 1.85 million viewers, the performance slightly trails that delivered by last season’s comparable episode.

“Trust Me,” the fourth episode of season one, drew a 1.0 rating with 2.30 million viewers on April 8, 2013. It was the worst-performing episode of the first season.

To date, season two of “Bates” is averaging a 0.95 rating and 2.34 million viewers. That average is held up, however by the strong 1.3 with 3.07 million garnered by the season premiere.
