Showtime’s ‘Tudors’ Outdraws HBO’s ‘Treatment’

Apr 7, 2009  •  Post A Comment

HBO’s shrink drew a lot of people to the couch Sunday night, but not as many as Showtime got for “The Tudors.”
The first two episodes of the new season of HBO’s “In Treatment” drew an average of 657,000 viewers in their premiere airings, up 137% from last season’s average of 277,000.
Meanwhile, the season-three premiere of Showtime’s “The Tudors” drew 726,000 viewers at 9 p.m., marking one of the few times a Showtime original has beaten an HBO original.
The “Tudors” premiere was down 5% from its second-season debut a year ago.
Earlier this year, an episode of Showtime’s “The United States of Tara” beat an episode of HBO’s “Flight of the Conchords,” and last year, an episode of Showtime’s “Dexter” topped “Tell Me You Love Me” on HBO.
HBO has about 12 million more subscribers than Showtime.

  1. I viewed my first In Treatment program about 2 weeks ago and I was blown away. Therapy has always seemed to be a mysterious process that I didn’t quite understand. However, due to the concentrated verbal exchange between doctor and patient in this powerful drama, it became possible to almost ‘see’ the mind of the patient reach a new realization. I finally get it. Great script, great acting, great subject.

  2. I enjoyed the first season; but find the
    writing, acting and scripts much more
    compelling for me this year. They have
    assembled a great group of actors,
    especially John Mahoney from FRASIER.
    I find the best moments for me take
    place when Paul and Oliver are spending
    time together. There’s something really
    touching about the tenderness Paul shows
    towards Oliver, a lonely fat kid with
    narcissistic parents.

  3. the reason the ratings are down, are because you wait so long to put out the new season! I love this show!
