FX’s “The Bridge” Ratings Bounce Back

Pessimism stemming from last week’s “The Bridge” rating, which tied a series low, was evidently for naught.

FX’s critically-acclaimed crime serial responded as effectively as the network could have hoped. After dropping to a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating last week, “The Bridge” improved to a 0.7 for this Wednesday’s offering.

Viewership also rose to a sold 1.80 million average.

While the series is not a runaway hit, it continues to establish itself as a solid, reliable performer for FX.

It also again outpaced the comparable episode from FX’s “The Americans,” which aired to rave reviews–and a second season renewal–earlier this year.
