How did Caitlyn Jenner’s new show do? “I Am Cait” topped Sunday’s cable shows, according to early overnight ratings.
While final ratings are expected on Thursday and E!’s Live plus 3-day ratings totals may not be available until later this week, the preliminary ratings are showing that Caitlyn Jenner’s new reality series did pretty well.
According to Variety, “I Am Cait” averaged a 2.1 household rating in Nielsen’s metered-markets, the 56 cities whose viewership is tracked by the ratings company.
That means it ties with TNT’s “The Last Ship” for the night’s most-watched cable show. Last week, a similar rating translated to a little more than 3 million viewers.
For comparison,that means it did better than HBO’s “True Detective” (1.5), TNT’s “Falling Skies” (1.5), and HBO’s “Ballers” (1.2).
