Update: Live + Same Day figures for the show’s broadcast on CBS have come in with a reported 9.6 million viewers tuning in and rating a 1.9 in adults 18-49.
Last night’s premiere of “Star Trek: Discovery” on CBS All Access drove a record number of single day sign-ups for the digital streaming subscription service.
The company won’t report specific numbers, but the record beats the previous one which was because of the 2017 Grammy Awards. The service also had its best week and month ever for sign-ups.
The new series, the first “Star Trek” back on TV since ‘Enterprise’ wrapped in 2005, has done well with reviewers who’ve given it a score of 76/100 on Metacritic – that’s better than “Big Little Lies” (75) & “Twin Peaks” (74), on par with “13 Reasons Why” and “Preacher,” and behind “American Gods” (77) and “The Good Fight” (80).
Episodes one and two of ‘Star Trek: Discovery” are now available to stream on CBS All Access in the United States and on Netflix around much of the rest of the world. All new episodes will be available on demand weekly after 8:30 PM US-ET on Sundays. Check out the graphics for the show’s opening titles sequence below:
