According to Vulture, last week’s premiere of “Atlanta” was the highest-rated debut of any basic cable comedy series since 2013. Additionally, it boasted the biggest premiere for any half-hour show on FX since 2011.
Numbers-wise, the premiere drew in 1.75 million total viewers and 1.05 million telecast viewers in the adults 50-and-under age demographic.
“Atlanta” follows two cousins, Earn and Paper Boi, as they maneuver their way through the music scene while also coping with their own personal struggles.
In addition to serving as creator and star of “Atlanta,” Donald Glover will also be featured in the upcoming, Spider-Man: Homecoming film. Although Glover won’t take on the role of the wallcrawler, fans did once petition for the rapper/actor to be cast as Spidey.
For those who have yet to venture to “Atlanta,” the show airs on Tuesdays at 10 P.M. ET on FX, or you can watch the first episode online here.
