Thanks to another strong performance for the BBC America broadcast, Sunday’s “Killing Eve” tied a series high in the adults 18-49 demographic.

According to live+same-day data posted by Showbuzz, Sunday’s episode drew a 0.13 adults 18-49 rating and averaged 0.45 million overall viewers on BBC America. The AMC simulcast added a 0.12 in the demo and 0.57 million in viewership.

The combined 0.25 demo rating ties the series high set by the April 7 season premiere. That episode, notably, drew more of its audience from AMC (the AMC simulcast drew a 0.15, while BBC America added a 0.10).

After slipping to a mere 0.04 two weeks ago, the BBC America airing has produced two comparatively strong ratings (0.12 last week, 0.13 this week).

This week’s combined 1.02 million viewership figure represents the show’s #3 mark on record. Only the aforementioned season premiere (1.17 million) and last week’s broadcast (1.09 million) drew more live+same-day viewers.

This Sunday’s episode marked the fifth broadcast of the second season. The episode, like the show’s previous iterations, should receive a noteworthy spike from delayed viewing.
