With an unprecedented 12.1 million visitors, Yellowstone’s Season 5 debut broke the series’ previous record for viewership.
According to Variety’s estimates, the 12.1 million people who watched the Season 5 premiere of Yellowstone were more than the 11.2 million who saw the debut of Season 4.
After broadcasting on Paramount Network, CMT, TV Land, and Pop, the first episode drew in 12.1 million viewers. An increase from last year’s 8 million viewers to this year’s 8.8 million on Paramount Network. There were 10.3 million viewers across all four networks, up from 9.5 million in 2017.
Ashwin Navin, co-founder and CEO of Samba TV, announced that the season four debut had the highest viewership of any scripted television launch in 2022. “Yellowstone continues to appeal to a wide audience in the American Midwest that has been underserved in recent years by television shows with Western themes.
St. Louis, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh had huge increases in viewership for the season opener, while San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York saw predictable decreases.
The premiere was rerun twice on Sunday, November 13, across all four networks, bringing the total audience to 12.1 million, breaking the previous record of 11.2 million established the year before. It should be noted, however, that Paramount Plus only aired a repeat of the Season 4 opener.
Yellowstone is the highest-rated scripted series launch of 2022, according to both The Hollywood Reporter and Samba TV.
