E!’s special Keeping Up With The Kardashians: About Bruce, which debuted Part 1 on May 17 at 9 PM, delivered 2.8 million demo viewers and 4.2 million total viewers in Live+3 ratings, making it the network’s most-watched premiere since September 2012.
The special finished as the No. 1 ad-supported cable program for the night in the demo, women 18-39 and in persons and women 18-34, besting the series finale of Mad Men. Among women 18-34, the special finished ahead of Game Of Thrones. (Live+3 ratings for Part 2 of the KUWTK Jenner special, which aired May 18 at 9 PM, won’t be out until Tuesday.)
Sunday’s 10 PM season finale of E!’s first original scripted series The Royals delivered 1.1 million demo viewers in Live+3, which was consistent with the overall Season 1 average. E! boasts the Elizabeth Hurley drama ranks as the top new scripted series in cable for the year, if you exclude all spinoffs. It’s back for a second season in November.
