On the one hand, Sunday’s “The Arrangement” opener drew a smaller audience than the 2015 series premiere of fellow E! show “The Royals.”
On the other hand, it drew a larger audience than all episodes in the most recent season of “The Royals.”
According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, Sunday’s “The Arrangement” drew a 0.36 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 0.85 million overall viewers.
It led out of a broadcast of “Fifty Shades Of Grey” (replacing the previously scheduled “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” premiere) that drew a 0.52 rating and 1.23 million in viewership.
Leading out of “Kardashians” (1.2, 2.55 million), the aforementioned “Royals” premiere posted a 0.5 in the adults 18-49 demo and 1.41 million in overall viewership on March 15, 2015.
Ratings for the show’s recent third season, however, pale in comparison to those premiere numbers. The third season finale, as an example, drew a 0.20 rating and 0.52 million in viewership.
