Falling Skies Premiere is Cable's #1 Series Launch This Year

It looks as though the Falling Skies premiere was a huge success as it drew in more than 5.9 million viewers to make it the #1 new series launch for the 2011. The two key demographics of 18-49 and 25-54 year olds did quite well with 2.6 million and 3.2 million adults respectively.

Also of note is that the Falling Skies debut had the biggest viewership for any cable scripted series since last year's Rizzoli & Isles (which had 7.6 million). This means Falling Skies beat out the much hyped The Walking Dead (5.3 million).

This is definitely good news and while we don't know how much of that audience the show will keep (or grow upon) during the next few episodes, it does make it seem like TNT will likely pick up second season soon.
