‘Yellowstone’s CBS Premiere Scores Massive Viewership Numbers
Due to the reduction of new content amid the ongoing actors and writers’ strike for fair wages and better working conditions — CBS modified its programming slate to include the massively popular neo-western series, Yellowstone. Apparently, the decision to air Paramount Network’s hit Taylor Sheridan-created series has so far proven to be a smart, strategic move, as millions of viewers have tuned in to witness the adventures of the Dutton family once again. Having premiered on the broadcasting network on September 17, the neo-Western drama has accumulated 6.56 million viewers thus far, according to Nielsen live-plus-same-day fast figures (via The Wrap).
Taylor Sheridan’s Yellowstone, which stars Kevin Costner, has made quite an impression for its network debut on CBS.
