50 Cent's

The final episode of "Power" was watched by approximately 2.5 million viewers.

The final episode of 50 Cent’s Power program had the highest season finale for a Starz program since 2013’s Spartacus: War of the Damned, according to allhiphop.com

The show, which drew 2.5 million viewers, doubled the number of viewers of the show’s first episode in June.

Power, which features Omari Hardwick, Naturi Naughton and 50 Cent, drew an average of 4 million viewers per episode for its first season once Starz on Demand and Starz Play were added, the network said.

Power’s viewership is 71% African-American.

Beginning August 12 at 10 pm EST, Starz is slated to re-air the full first season of Power on Encore Black.

"I'm really proud of this project," 50 Cent said in June. "I've been pretty much hands-on and involved with the entire process and I feel like my baby's born. Omari was the perfect person for it. The stars lined up for me when started going through the casting process. He was the #1 person on the list for us to pick for the show."

Also in June, it was announced that Power was been picked up for a 10-episode second season.

    You might be dangerous if you actually knew what you were talking about. Breaking Bad only had 7 episodes in Season 1 due to a writers strike. It eventually went on to become the highest watched cable show in history. It had real actors with real writers. I wasn't even a fan of that show, but to pretend that Power is following the same pattern is just laughable.

    Another win for 50. Got the opening theme song and more often than not an Animal Ambition song during the end credits. They played an unreleased Freddie Gibbs song in the finale.

    show is good. They need to pick up the pace though. Ghost/Angela do a lot of talking about the same stuff for 7 1/2 episodes. The club stuff with stern was boooring! I fwd thru it. Also, how come no one in knows that Angela is a federal prosecutor. They havent seen her in years but nobody has google? Also, a good show ties up some storylines at finale. Not one storyline has been tied up after 8 episodes. Starz has a history of killing off its series after two seasons. Power needs to step it up to avoid that.
    • HipHopOne
      Yeah. The club stuff was a drag. They need to stop being a show about star crossed lovers and get to the gettin'. Also, how does anyone not google the girl angela to see what she does for a living?

      The wire started out slow but when it was on it was on they have to develop the story season 2 will be much different.
    • kato5209
      I feel yall but to say the least, Tommy found out Angela was part of the feds on the end of the show. I guess that would be something to lean forward toward in Season 2. Now we all have to wait patiently for a year.
