New Jim Carrey Series Kicks Off With Strong Ratings For Showtime

Posted by at 12:52 pm on September 11, 2018

The premiere of Jim Carrey’s new Showtime series Kidding enjoyed a respectable start in the Sunday ratings. Airing at 10 p.m. immediately after Shameless, Kidding drew 443,000 viewers in its linear debut. When adding in the three replays that aired the same night, that grows to 787,000. Showtime also made the premiere available on digital platforms ten days prior to the linear launch, with the premium cable network claiming an additional 360,000 viewers watched in that time. As such, Kidding’s total premiere haul stands at approximately 1.2 million.

Meanwhile, the Season 9 premiere of Shameless saw Showtime’s most-watched show take a hit in the linear ratings on Sunday night. Airing at 9 p.m., Shameless drew 1.3 million viewers in its initial airing, off approximately 30% from the Season 8 premiere. However, when adding in replays that aired Sunday night as well as streaming and On Demand viewership, the show’s haul grows to 2.2 million.

Looking just at the linear ratings, Kidding’s premiere topped previous Showtime offerings like White Famous and both season premieres of I’m Dying Up Here, which Carrey also executive produces.
