‘OJ: Made in America’ Premiere Tackles 3.4 Million Total Viewers

Key demo hands ABC top Saturday broadcast rating in five months, excluding sports and debates

The ABC network premiere of ESPN documentary “O.J.: Made in America” huddled-up 3.4 million total viewers on Saturday.

The start to the 10-hour TV movie received a 0.9 rating/4 share in the key 18-49 demographic. That Nielsen rating actually tripled the 0.3 from its lead-in.

“Made in America” ranked No. 1 among its major network competition in all four half-hours of its two-hour time slot.

The O.J. Simpson special not only ranked as the evening’s No. 1 non-sports TV program, but excluding sporting events and political debates, “Made in America” tied as the highest-rated Saturday broadcast show in the last five months among viewers 18-49.

Parts 2 through 5 of “O.J.: Made in America” premiere each night at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN this Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.
