Ratings: ‘Titan Games’ Season 2 Premiere Has Titanic Decline From Series Debut

But it was Memorial Day, so

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s “The Titan Games” returned to NBC last night with a mighty drop in TV ratings from its Season 1 premiere last year, according to Nielsen.

On Jan. 3 2019, the 2-hour series premiere of the athletic competition series scored a 1.8 rating/8 share among adults 18-49 and 6.5 million total viewers. The “Titan Games” Season 2 opener, which aired from 8-10 p.m. during Monday’s Memorial Day holiday primetime, settled for a 0.7/4 and 3.4 million viewers.
