Ratings: “Orphan Black” Rebounds with Most Watched Episode Since Season Premiere

After last week posting the worst viewership total since season one, BBC America’s “Orphan Black” this week rallied back in both adults 18-49 and total viewership.

Saturday’s episode, which was the eighth of the current season, drew a 0.16 adults 18-49 rating with 522,000 viewers. It was the most-watched episode since the season three premiere, which drew 535,000 viewers on BBC America and 1.27 million across AMC’s suite of networks.

It was also the first episode since the premiere to reach an audience in excess of 500,000.

Last week’s broadcast drew a 0.10 adults 18-49 rating with 372,000 viewers. As one of the strongest episodes of the season, it nonetheless served to build momentum for this week’s broadcast.

Renewed for season four, “Orphan Black” routinely receives a sizable boost in live+3 and live+7.
