Deadwood (HBO): Ratings Recap

HBO's 'Deadwood' premiered March 21, 2004 behind the third-episode of the fifth season of 'The Sopranos'. The program logged an impressive 5.8 million viewers, holding more than half of its 'Sopranos' lead-in (10.1 million). The first season remained pretty solid, averaging about 4.5 million viewers, but concluded on a low-note (3.21 million) without a 'Sopranos' lead-in. A second season aired in 2005 and did have an expected viewership drop with the loss of a strong lead-in, but the show remained above 2 million viewers for every episode and averaged 2.4 million throughout the run. A third and final season premiered in 2006 and very little ratings data is available for this season. The season premiered right where the latter season left off - 2.4 million - but fell to a series-low by episode 4 (1.7 million) and ultimately concluded with just over 2 million viewers. It was not renewed for a fourth season, but HBO aired a 'Deadwood' movie in May 2019 which found 931,000 viewers.
