Sunday’s premiere notched the network’s best performance in that genre when accounting for on demand and streaming
“The Comey Rule” debuted Sunday to more than 400,000 viewers and more than 1 million when adding in on demand and streaming platforms, making it Showtime’s top multiplatform debut ever for a limited drama series.
The 90-minute premiere of the network’s two-part miniseries notched 626,000 viewers on TV with an additional 375,000 viewers when accounting for on demand and streaming. Showtime says that’s about 23% higher than “Escape at Dannemora,” the prior record holder. The 626,000 viewers include two replays — one Sunday night and another one Monday prior to Part 2. For the 9 p.m. debut on Sunday, “The Comey Rule” drew 415,000 viewers.
