Psychological thriller's first episode reaches more than 13 million viewers to date, delivering TNT's strongest series debut since 2012 and a record-setting digital launch
"The Alienist" scored an impressive launch last Monday night to become cable's No. 1 new drama series this season in live +3 delivery. This turn-of-the-century murder mystery has so far reached a cumulative 13.1 million total viewers in telecasts airing last week, nearly half of whom were new to the network. The premiere TNT telecast alone averaged 3.1M total viewers and nearly 1M viewers 18-49 in live +3, and the network's live +35 multiplatform projection is 16 million, making it TNT's most successful launch event since 2012. New episodes of "The Alienist" premiere Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on TNT.
Hailed as "exhilarating to watch" by USA Today, and "richly detailed" by the Los Angeles Times, "The Alienist" beat out eight new dramas that have already premiered this season for the No. 1 slot. "The Alienist" premiere was also a record-setting digital launch for TNT, generating more than 4 million total minutes watched on TNT's apps and sites, the most digital views among all TNT series, and sparking more than 10 million social engagements.
