How is it faring in the ratings?

We haven’t discussed the performance of City of Angels too much so far, but we’re not sure that Showtime is getting precisely what they hoped for out of it. To date, we’re seeing the series average around 360,000 live viewers an episode — while these constitute just a small sample of viewers when you bring in DVR numbers and internet streams, it is still important to gauge your live, traditional viewership. It’s usually at least a good representation of sample size.

For some comparisons, another Showtime drama in Billions is currently bringing in over 600,000 live viewers an episode. Meanwhile, the original Penny Dreadful averaged in its final season close to 580,000 viewers. Maybe the numbers level off more when you consider external measures, but there is no guarantee of anything beyond this season at the moment.
