Cable Ratings: Better Call Saul, Preacher season 3, Lodge 49

Better Call Saul season 4In this edition of Cable Ratings, we’re touching now on the latest for Better Call Saul, Preacher season 3, and Lodge 49. Clearly, there’s a lot of different stuff to discuss here.

Let’s start with the latest when it comes to Better Call Saul, as the AMC series drew a 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic and then also close to 1.55 million viewers. Given that the premiere episode was the first installment in well over a year, we expected the premiere ratings to be inflated; with that, we also anticipated a little bit of a drop. That is precisely what happened here. The good news, though, is that the series is currently averaging better live viewership for season 4 than it did for season 3. We’ll see if it keeps that up.

As for some of the other shows on the schedule as of late…

Lodge 49 – We wish there was some better news here, but last night’s episode drew just a 0.1 rating and almost 500,000 viewers, a hefty drop from the premiere. Given that the series has a pretty good lead-in, we have to think that AMC was expecting something better. It actually is really entertaining, but it feels almost like one of those shows that nobody is going to appreciate until a few years after it is gone from the air.

Preacher – How about this for some good news? Following Fear the Walking Dead on Sunday night, this AMC series drew a 0.3 rating and its best total viewership of the whole season with over 930,000 viewers checking it out. We don’t know for sure if this will get the series a season 4, but it certainly doesn’t hurt anything.
