Sunday's premiere of “Bonnie & Clyde” drew 9.8 million total viewers, with 4.2 million of them in the demo.

The miniseries — which stars Emile Hirsch and Holliday Grainger as criminal couple Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker, averaged 8.6 million total viewers, making it the third-most watched miniseries — behind History's “Hatfields & McCoys” and “The Bible” since 2006.

The Day 2 dropoff for “Bonnie & Clyde” is in line with those miniseries; while both performed considerably better than “Bonnie & Clyde,” they also fell off with their second installments, with “The Bible” slipping from 13.1 million total viewers to 10.8 million, and “Hatfields” falling from 13.9 million to 13.1 million.
