The 4400 (USA): Ratings Recap

USA Network's 'The 4400' premiered July 11, 2004 to a 2.8/8 adults 18-49 rating/share and 7.41 million viewers which, at the time, were the biggest debut numbers for a basic cable series in history. The record was previously held by 'The Dead Zone' which snagged 6.438 million viewers in 2002, and was broken again by TNT's 'Raising the Bar' which scored 7.7 million viewers for its 2008 premiere. The show did really well throughout its short 5-episode first season - averaging 2.91 million adults 18-49 (2.1 rating) and 5.89 million viewers - so it was renewed for a second season. The second season aired in summer 2005 and despite starting very solid (5.25 million), it soon tumbled down to 3.2 million, and averaged about 3.54 million viewers and 2.07 million adults 18-49 (1.6 rating). The third season (2006) continued the downward trajectory, managing 1.77 million adults 18-49 (1.4 rating) & 3.22 million viewers, and the fourth season (2007) tumbled all the way down to 2.1 million on-average. The show concluded September 16, 2007 having aired a total of 44 episodes. Note: the viewership and 18-49 season averages come from official published sources and are a reflection of the full seasons.
