Ratings: FX’s “Fargo” Rises From Last Week’s Series Low Performance

While it failed to match the numbers posted by the October 12 season two premiere, let alone those routinely delivered during its inaugural season, FX’s “Fargo” posted week-over-week gains in adults 18-49 and total viewership.

Monday’s episode drew a 0.42 adults 18-49 rating with 1.209 million live+same-day viewers. Both numbers top those of the previous broadcast, which drew a series low 0.27 adults 18-49 rating and a series low 962,000 viewership sum.

Still critically acclaimed, “Fargo” has been a markedly weaker performer in season two. The aforementioned October 12 premiere, which ranks as the most-watched of the season’s three episodes, drew 1.588 million viewers.

That bests only one second season viewership total (1.515 million on May 27, 2014).
