USA Network’s hacker drama had a very good second week – at least in digital afterlife. In Live + 3 ratings, freshman Mr. Robot pulled in 3.2 million total viewers and got a 1.11 rating among adults 18-49 for its second episode, according to Nielsen. The DVR + same night numbers for the July 1 broadcast were up 85% in the key demo from the OK Live + Same Day results the Sam Esmail- created conspiracy series had. In terms of its overall audience, the second episode of Mr. Robot was just a tad down from its debut with 1.73 million as opposed to June 24’s 1.75 million. Among adults 18-49, the second week of the show got a 0.6 rating, up 20% in L+SD numbers.
Week-to-week Live + 3 to Live + 3, the most recent Mr. Robot had a double digit rise over its June 24 debut. In total viewers in L+3 results, the second episode was up 13% from its premiere and 36% in among adults 18-49. With the first Mr. Robot episode having been available online early, the USA debut may have taken a loss from the other platforms. This Episode #2 jump could set a precedent for the already renewed show or settle down going in and past Episode 3.
