TNT’s “Claws” has not been delivering mammoth live+same-day numbers, but it has been a remarkably consistent performer across its first five episodes.
It is also receiving big lifts from DVR and multi-platform viewing.
With those factors on its side, “Claws” predictably scored a second season renewal. TNT announced the news Wednesday afternoon.
“Look out Manatee County, these ladies are coming back for more!” said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT. “These strong-willed, hilarious women represent the diverse voices this network is all about. Claws has certainly struck a chord with audiences and continues to attract new viewers each week.”
TNT notes that “Claws” is averaging 6.3 million all-platform viewers (TV, streaming, mobile, etc) per episode. The TV broadcasts of the episodes are averaging 1.1 million adults 18-49 on a live+7 basis.
The first season will conclude on August 13. Season two will bow in 2018.
