FX says it’s pleased with the second season debut of "Justified," saying that it pulled "very solid" ratings, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.
The show was watched by a total of 3.5 million viewers, which the story says is "both good and not-so-good news" for FX after the failure of "Terriers." The season debut represented a 42% increase in total viewers compared with the program’s first season average, but the article notes that the second season rollout declined 17% from the first season’s debut.
The story also points out that "Justified’s" audience is almost two-thirds men, which is noteworthy since usually women are bigger viewers of episodic dramas.
The series focuses on a U.S. marshal in Kentucky.
