Power season 6 ratings, Chesapeake Shores, Fear the Walking Dead

PowerIt’s been a while since we’ve checked in on the performance of a number of cable series, so why not do it within this piece?

A good starting-off point here is Power season 6 — it may be the final season, but doesn’t everyone want to see the show go out with as big of a bang possible? The premiere generated a total live audience of 1.47 million, a number close to the premiere ratings from the start of season 5. Whatever difference is there may be compensated by the show’s streaming numbers, which haven’t been confirmed yet via Starz. Consider this — more and more viewers are choosing to check out these premium-cable shows early. Why in the world would you wait if you don’t have to, and you can just enjoy the show when it is first available? Some people aren’t able to, but for others, there are other options.

Note that the live premiere audience for Power is up versus the show’s season 5 average.

Good start for Chesapeake Shores – The Hallmark Channel is doing a good job jumping quickly from one hit show to the next. They had When Calls the Heart, Good Witch, and now Chesapeake Shores is populating their airwaves. For now, the news is good. The premiere drew a 0.2 rating in the 18-49 demographic and over 1.8 million live viewers; the demo is about on par with the most-recent premiere, and the total viewership is actually stronger than both the premiere and the season 3 average. If the show keeps this trajectory, it feels fair to say that a season 5 will be coming.

Also, does Hallmark Channel have some of the most ratings-stable shows out there right now? In terms of live viewership, it does feel that way.

Fear the Walking Dead holds on – This past episode on Sunday generated a 0.4 rating and over 1.43 million live viewers — a slight increase versus the week prior. Yet, the interesting story about Fear the Walking Dead and its ratings is that no matter what happens with it, it always tends to survive. It’s already been renewed, but this is a show that is down more than 40% in the demo versus season 4. Meanwhile, it’s also down by almost 30% in live viewers.
