Ratings for the two-hour “Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger” premiere have arrived. They reveal that the new Freeform drama premiered similar to fellow 2018 newcomer “Siren.”

According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, Thursday’s “Cloak & Dagger” opener averaged a 0.29 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 835,000 overall viewers.

The aforementioned “Siren” opener drew a 0.30 adults 18-49 rating and 871,000 overall viewers.

“Cloak & Dagger,” it should be noted, endured a non-trivial decline in hour two. While the first hour drew a 0.32 adults 18-49 rating and 919,000 viewers, the 9-10PM window posted a 0.25 and 750,000.

“Siren” was much steadier over the course of its two hours. It posted a 0.30 adults 18-49 at both 8PM and 9PM. The 8PM hour drew a slightly better viewership number (872,000 vs. 869,000).
