This week’s “The Strain” had effectively no chance of matching the numbers delivered by the previous week’s season premiere. And insofar as the previous week’s season premiere set a viewership low, this week’s episode was inevitably going to set another new low.
Though slight, the week two drop-off did occur. As a result, the second episode of the show’s second season ranks as the least-watched episode yet.
Sunday’s broadcast posted a 0.74 adults 18-49 rating with 1.625 million viewers. The previous episode scored a 0.78 with 1.664 million.
While down from last year’s marks, “The Strain” is still performing well by FX — and general cable — standards.
