After slipping sharply last week, BBC America’s “Orphan Black” enjoyed gains in adults 18-49 and total viewership this week.

Saturday’s episode, which was the third of the third season, posted a 0.19 adults 18-49 rating with 443,000 viewers. Both numbers were up from those of the previous episode, which drew a 0.14 with 420,000 viewers.

The demo rating actually ties that delivered by the BBC America edition of the season premiere. That broadcast, which was one of five concurrent “Orphan Black” airings, delivered a 0.19 with 535,000 viewers.

Despite besting last week’s mark, this week’s viewership total nonetheless trails that posted by every season two episode. Had last week’s episode not fared the way it did, this Saturday’s edition would have been the least watched since 2013.
