“Faking It” Delivers Steady Ratings, Improves Viewership Total

Faking It [MTV]

Uninterested in declining for a second consecutive week, MTV’s new comedy “Faking It” held steady in the ratings Tuesday.

Tuesday’s episode, the show’s third, matched the previous week’s 0.4 adults 18-49 rating. Its viewership total of 928,000 represented a gain of 8% from last week’s total.

Two weeks ago, “Faking It” premiered to a 0.5 rating with 1.17 million viewers.

The scenario was similar for MTV’s veteran comedy “Awkward,” which led into “Faking It.” Even with last week’s 0.5 rating, this week’s broadcast drew an improved viewership tally of 1.213 million.
