Ratings: HBO’s “Westworld” Rises This Week

Westworld [HBO]

Unlike last week’s broadcast, this week’s “Westworld” was not asked to contend with the World Series. It also faced a lower-rated (though still monstrous) edition of “The Walking Dead.”

It accordingly rose in the live+same-day ratings.

According to L+SD data posted by Showbuzz, Sunday’s “Westworld” drew a 0.71 adults 18-49 rating and 1.64 million total viewers. Last week’s episode drew a 0.65 and 1.49 million total viewers.

Lead-out “Divorce” also ticked up this week, drawing a 0.17 rating and 0.53 million total viewers. Last week’s edition posted a 0.16 and 0.52 million.

“Insecure” was steady in the demo (0.13) but down in total viewership (0.33 million vs. 0.35 million), while “Last Week Tonight” (0.40, 1.05 million vs. 0.39, 1.03 million) was up slightly in both columns.
