There’s even more great news for everyone following the Yellowstone ratings closely — entering the upcoming finale, the Paramount Network series remains stronger than it’s been for most of the summer.
Now only did Wednesday night’s new episode tie its series-high 0.4 rating in the 18-49 demographic, but with more than 2.13 million viewers, it posted its best total audience since July 11. What’s not to love there? While the series hasn’t come close to matching its premiere viewership just yet, it has managed to be incredibly steady from basically the second week of the show on.
So what is Yellowstone doing that other shows out there can learn from? It’s really a combination of things, but we think #1 on the list is that it’s figured out a way to bring back a specific genre and style of television that isn’t quite out there anywhere else. It’s appealing to a crowd that has not been catered to and we do think that this helps it immensely. Beyond just that, it tells the sort of story that really gets you drawn in and makes you want to see just about every single second of it from start to finish. Once you’re addicted, you don’t want to stop watching live because you’ll miss out on the opportunity to talk about it with some of your friends afterwards.
Now, we really just have to hope that the folks behind the scenes at the Paramount Network don’t find a way to screw this up. We’re hoping that there is going to be a way in which they can keep the show on the summer, not move it around too much, and don’t try to change the show from what it is — after all, what the show is right now is clearly a series that is working.
What do you think of the Yellowstone ratings entering the finale, and do you predict that they will continue to go up in this sort of way? Share in the comments!
