Numbers Are In for Debut of Critically Acclaimed HBO Show 'Girls' EW

Viewer numbers are in for Sunday’s debut of the critically acclaimed HBO comedy series "Girls," with the show drawing a modest 1.1 million viewers across two airings, reports's Inside TV blog.

That represented a drop from its lead-in, "Eastbound & Down," which delivered 1.6 million viewers for its third-season finale, the piece notes.

"Girls" performed better than the debut of HBO's most recent new comedy, "Enlightened," which received a second-season order, so it's likely "Girls" will receive another season unless ratings plummet, the piece points out.
