History’s three-part miniseries Sons Of Liberty wrapped last night, with 3.3 million total viewers tuning in to see the finale — 1.1 million of those in the adults 18-49 demo. The network said it was the night’s most-watched cable show in total viewers, and those numbers are mostly even with Night 1 of the mini on Sunday, which drew 3.3M viewers and 1.4M in the demo.
The mini, which took an action angle on historical figures including Sam Adams, John Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock and Dr. Joseph Warren planning the American Revolution, was a solid viewer-getter for the network but it fell short of the May 2012 phenom Hatfields & McCoys mini, which drew 13.9 million total viewers and 4.8 million adults 18-49 in its first episode which was the No. 1 nonsports telecast ever on ad-supported cable. History followed that in March 2013 with the debut of mini The Bible to a crowd of 13.1 million viewers, that year’s most-watched cable entertainment telecast.
Over its three nights, Sons Of Liberty averaged 3.1M total viewers, 1.1M adults 18-49 and 1.3M adults 25-54.
Sons Of Liberty is produced by A+E Studios in association with Stephen David Entertainment for History.
