Ratings: HBO’s “Westworld” Enjoys Another Gain

Westworld [HBO]

For the second straight week, HBO’s “Westworld” posted a gain in the live+same-day ratings.

According to data posted by Showbuzz, Sunday’s episode drew a 0.78 adults 18-49 rating and 1.75 million total viewers. The numbers top the 0.71 rating and 1.64 million viewer mark drawn by last week’s episode.

The gain comes despite a marked increase in competition from Sunday Night Football.

Solid, the live+same-day ratings do not at all tell the whole story regarding “Westworld.” With encore airings, DVR, on-demand, and digital viewership factored into the equation, “Westworld” episodes are reaching considerably more than ~1.7 million viewers per week.

— “Westworld” led into “Divorce” (0.16 rating, 0.51 million this week vs. 0.17/0.53m last week), which led into “Insecure” (0.17/0.39m vs. 0.13/0.33m). Both comedies have also been renewed for season two.

HBO closed its evening with “Last Week Tonight” (0.47/1.17m vs. 0.40/1.05m).
