Powered by a big gain for the BBC America broadcast, Sunday’s “Killing Eve” was the best-performing episode since the April 7 season premiere. It meanwhile ranks as the show’s second-most-watched episode ever.

According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, this week’s episode drew a 0.12 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 0.63 million viewers on AMC. The BBC America installment posted a 0.12 adults 18-49 rating and 0.46 million viewers.

The combined 0.24 rating and 1.09 million viewer sum represent the show’s best performance since the aforementioned season premiere, which drew a combined 0.25 and 1.17 million viewer figure. The BBC America-specific numbers are actually the very best of the season.

Last week’s episode drew a combined 0.19 rating and 0.98 million viewer mark, with the BBC America figures coming in at just 0.04 and 0.36 million.

A live+same-day gain is always worth celebrating, but it ultimately tells just part of the story for “Killing Eve.” The show continues to post solid numbers in delayed viewing, while also generating valuable “prestige buzz” for the two networks.
