Sex and the City (HBO): Ratings Recap

HBO's 'Sex and the City' premiered June 6, 1998 to a 2.9 household rating and 3.84 million viewers and remained around that mark throughout its first and second seasons. A third season premiered in 2000 to 4.2 million viewers and averaged about 4.3 million viewers in its 18-episode run. Ratings began to pick up in its fourth season (2001) which premiered to a then-high of 6.49 million viewers, averaged nearly 6 million viewers, and concluded with a strong 7.39 million. The show's fifth season continued the ratings climb, up over 1 million viewers on average to just over 7 million. The sixth and final season (2003-04) dipped just a bit to 6.6 million viewers, but the show concluded in February 2004 to a series-high 10.62 million. Note: full viewership figures were not available for seasons 1 or 2, so only episodes whose viewership was available are included in those tables. Also, the majority of household ratings for season 3 were also not available so only available figures were included.
