bonnieandclydeThe opening part of four-hour miniseries Bonnie & Clyde last night delivered 9.8 million total viewers and 4.2 million adults 25-54 viewers in simulcast on Lifetime, A&E and History. That is a respectable showing though it fell short of the meteoric highs of History’s first two miniseries: Hatfields & McCoys, which opened with 13.9 million viewers, and The Bible, which premiered with 13.1 million viewers. Both aired only on History, for which Bonnie & Clyde was originally developed. History led the A+E simulcast viewership pack last night with 3.7 million viewers, followed by Lifetime (3.1 million) and A&E (3 million).
