The premiere episode of Atlanta delivered impressive numbers for FX!! According to a press release from the network:
Atlanta…scored the best audience of any basic cable primetime scripted comedy in over three years in the key 18-49 demographic. On a Live+3 basis, the total audience delivery for the series premiere telecast and encore airings was 3 million Total Viewers and 1.9 million Adults 18-49.
Created by and starring actor, writer and recording artist Donald Glover (aka Childish Gambino), Atlanta is about two cousins exploring the hip-hop scene of the bustling southern city. “I know it’s going to be very easy for people to say ‘it’s a black Mecca,’ and it is, but I just think that it’s the most American place,” Donald said during a panel discussion about the show at TCA in January. “Everybody there is like ‘Yo, I got a verse’. Everybody is trying to make something from nothing.”
Atlanta airs every Tuesday night at 10 pm on FX!!
