Yellowstone hits series ratings high for Paramount

Published

on


Despite some initial lacklustre reviews for the first episode Yellowstone is really hitting it’s stride now for the Paramount Network. Episode 3, No Good Horses, set records across several key demos including P 18-49 (1.3), P 25-54 (1.9) and W25-54 (1.7). The series now ranks as cable’s most-watched series behind “The Walking Dead.”

The success of “Yellowstone” marks the six-month old network’s third successful scripted launch in a row. Back in January, the limited-series “Waco,” which last week scored three Emmy nominations, premiered to the best ratings for an ad-supported cable drama debut in nearly six months. In June, the network’s first scripted-comedy “American Woman,” bowed to the highest P/W18-49 and W25-54 ratings for an ad-supported cable scripted half-hour series premiere since early January.

Starring world-renowned actor and Oscar(R)-winner Kevin Costner, who serves in the lead role, “Yellowstone” is written and directed by critically-acclaimed, Oscar(R)-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan (“Wind River,” “Hell or High Water” and “Sicario”).

In addition to Costner, the impressive cast for “Yellowstone” includes Wes Bentley, Kelly Reilly, Luke Grimes, Dave Anabelle, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Danny Huston, Gil Birmingham, Josh Lucas, Jefferson White, Gretchen Mol, Jill Hennessey, Patrick St. Esprit, Ian Bohen, Heather Hemmons, Denim Richards, and Michael Nouri.

“Yellowstone” chronicles the Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Costner), who controls the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect – the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and America’s first national park.

Executive Producers for the series include Taylor Sheridan, Kevin Costner, John Linson, Art Linson, and David C. Glasser. Ted Gold and Lauren Ruggiero are the executives in charge of production for Paramount Network.

New episodes of Yellowstone premiere Wednesday at 10pm ET/PT only on the new Paramount Network.
