Starz’s ‘Power’ Ratings Rise for Season Finale

The series will also get a second run on Encore Black this month

Starz’s “Power” saw a sizable bump in viewership for last Saturday’s season finale.

In its 9 p.m. timeslot, “Power” earned a 2.9 HH rating and nearly 1.1 million viewers. That more than doubles the show’s series premiere back on June 7th, which earned a 1.3 HH rating and 462,000 viewers. Over the weekend’s replays, viewers of the finale grew to almost 2.5 million viewers. That outpaces all recent STARZ finale weekends since “Spartacus: War of The Damned” in April 2013.
