Ratings: Showtime’s “The Affair” Improves Again

Demonstrating a welcome trajectory, Showtime’s new drama “The Affair” achieved a second consecutive week of ratings improvement.

And this week’s uptick dwarfs that delivered by last week’s broadcast.

Sunday’s “The Affair,” which was the series’ third broadcast to date, drew a 0.2 adults 18-49 rating (rounded up from a 0.19) with 599,000 viewers. Both figures exceed their corresponding marks from last week’s episode, which drew a 0.2 adults 18-49 rating (but rounded up from only a 0.15) with 512,000 viewers.

The 10/12 premiere, meanwhile, drew a 0.1 rating (rounded down from a 0.14) with 507,000 viewers.

Assistance once again came from Showtime flagship “Homeland,” which also enjoyed a second week of improvement. After delivering a 0.5 rating (but rounded up from a 0.47) with 1.35 million viewers last week, “Homeland” this week posted a 0.5 (rounded down from a 0.53) with 1.53 million.
