A nice increase from the season 3 premiere…
AMC has announced that the season 4 premiere of Hell On Wheels scored 3.6 million viewers. This includes the three days of time-shifting. The show had a live+3 rating, which grew 48 percent from live/same day and was up five percent over the ratings for the season three premiere.
Speaking on the announcement, AMC President Charlie Collier commented: "Achieving critical mass, let alone year-over-year audience growth, is more elusive than ever in today's environment. We saw a strategic opportunity for Hell On Wheels on the toughest night of the week for TV, and now the show has grown two years in a row in this new slot. Nearly 3.6 million viewers for the premiere within three days puts the show in elite cable company in its fourth season. Thanks to John Wirth, Anson Mount and the entire writing team, cast and crew for bringing Hell On Wheels back to the fans with such distinction. AMC is proud to be back on the railroad, raising Hell and revolution on Saturday night."
The season 4 premiere aired on August 2. The Western TV series follows the construction of the First Transcontinental railroad in the US.
