Ratings: FX’s “Louie” Rises; “The Comedians” Sinks to Low

Deflated lead-in support did not prevent this week’s “Louie” from posting week-over-week gains in adults 18-49 and total viewership.

This week’s edition of the FX comedy drew a 0.22 adults 18-49 rating with 414,000 total viewers. Both numbers top those of last week’s broadcast, which achieved a 0.17 rating with 366,000 audience members.

That episode was the least-watched “Louie” installment on record.

While “Louie” rose from that series low this week, lead-in “The Comedians” set a new one. Airing at 10PM, Thursday’s “The Comedians” drew a deflated 0.14 adults 18-49 rating with 381,000 total viewers.

Both marks represent series lows.

Last week’s edition of “The Comedians” posted a 0.20 rating with 474,000 viewers.
