Yellowstone broke a ratings record for its Season 5 premiere! The Dutton drama delivered a cumulative viewership of 12.1 million live-plus-same day viewers, the biggest overnight launch yet for the show.

“After four seasons, the show’s massive audience base continues to impress with its latest season premiere becoming the most watched scripted television premiere of 2022,” said Ashwin Navin, co-founder and CEO, Samba TV. “Yellowstone continues to tap into the passions of a broad swath of viewers throughout the American Midwest hungry for Western-themed genres that have been largely underrepresented on television in recent years. Viewership significantly over-indexed for the season premiere within cities such as St. Louis, Cleveland and Pittsburgh and not surprisingly under-indexed in the largely coastal urban centers of San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York.”

If the numbers are already looking like that, who knows how high they’ll go this season!

We’re so excited about the new Dutton spinoff, 1923. The show finally shared a first look at frontrunners Harrison Ford & Helen Mirren, and we are in love! Check out the photos HERE.
