Cable Ratings: 'Khloe & Lamar' Starts OK, 'Merlin' Ends Solid, 'Killing' Holds Up Well

The series premiere of Khloe & Lamar on E! last night drew almost 2.6 million total viewers. The show, starring Kardashian and L.A. Lakers forward Odom, fell short of the recent debut of Kourtney & Kim Take New York, which logged a record 3 million total viewers, but was in line with the first- and second-season premieres of another Keeping Up with the Kardashians spinoff series, Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami, which drew 2.7 million and 2.6 million, respectively.

The Season 3 finale of Merlin on Syfy on Friday posted 1.9 million viewers, a series high, as well as 621,000 adults 18-49, also a season high.

In Week 2, AMC’s crime drama The Killing drew 2.6 million viewers, on par with the 2.7 million who tuned in for the two-hour premiere last week, an encouraging hold for a serialized series. However, its cumed audience for the night’s three airings, 4 million, was down from the 4.7 million total viewership for the premiere night. In persons 25-54, The Killing (993,000) was down 10%.

Also in its second week, Starz’s Camelot posted 850,000 viewers, down 23% from its two-hour premiere.
