Season 2 Premiere Ratings Strong But Down From Last Year

The Falling Skies season 2 premiere opened strong, but not as strong as last year's premiere as it pulled in 4.5 million viewers and a 1.5 rating among adults 18-49.  Last year's premiere drew a 2.0 rating among the key adults 18-49 demographic.

While dropping from a 2.0 to a 1.5 in the key demographic is a decent drop, it's also not too surprising considering it was up against the NBA finals as well as golf.

    Sadly a lot of great shows suffer rating dips. The key is to see where the show is at past mid season. One of the tricks cable networks have been using over years is to film short intense seasons - like just 10 to 15 episodes. Keeps ratings from tanking.
