Last week, HBO’s comedies “Girls,” “Togetherness” and “Looking” all enjoyed ratings and viewership rises despite facing stiff competition from the Academy Awards broadcast.
This week, the three comedies did not face competition from a major television event. All three rose again, and “Girls” enjoyed particularly considerable gains in both adults 18-49 and total viewership.
Up from last week’s episode, which drew a 0.22 adults 18-49 rating and 477,000 viewers, this week’s “Girls” scored a 0.33 rating with 639,000 viewers. It was the most watched telecast since the January 25, which was the last to air sans competition from a major television event or awards show.
That episode drew a superior viewership average of 721,000 but a slightly inferior 0.31 adults 18-49 rating.
Freshman lead-out “Togetherness” followed with a 0.21 rating and 444,000 viewers. It was up from the previous telecast, which scored a 0.20 rating and 367,000 viewers.
“Looking” followed with a 0.11 rating and 239,000 viewers. Last week’s broadcast scored a 0.10 rating with 204,000 viewers.
