Ratings: WGN America’s “Salem” Falls from Season One Premiere, Bests Finale

The good news: Sunday’s “Salem” was the most-watched episode since the April 2014 series premiere.

The bad news: Its adults 18-49 and total viewership numbers do not remotely compare to those of the series premiere.

Sunday’s “Salem,” which commenced the WGN America series’ second episode, drew a 0.22 adults 18-49 rating with 510,000 viewers.

Up from the 0.08 rating and 236,000 million viewership total posted by the July 13, 2014 season one finale, the numbers considerably trail the 0.51 rating and 1.521 million viewership marks posted by the April 20, 2014 season one opener.

The two season premieres represent the only “Salem” episodes to draw a first-run viewership total in excess of 500,000.
