Ratings: “Orphan Black” Rises for Season 3 Finale

The season finale of BBC America’s “Orphan Black” was not the season or series’ highest-rated broadcast, but it did outperform the penultimate installment.

Saturday’s episode posted a 0.15 adults 18-49 rating with 428,000 total viewers.

The previous broadcast drew a 0.10 rating with 401,000.

A weaker ratings performer than it was last year, “Orphan Black” has nonetheless performed well enough in context — and received enough of a DVR lift — to warrant a fourth season pickup from BBC America. Set to launch next year, that season will include ten episodes.
