A&E Miniseries With High-Powered Cast Debuts to Comatose Ratings

Sep 5, 2012  •  Post A Comment

A&E’s "Coma" miniseries had a low viewer turnout for its first night — especially when compared with the network’s previous medical thriller miniseries, "Andromeda Strain," reports EW.com’s Inside TV.

The first installment of "Coma" aired Monday, with only 1.8 million viewers tuning in, the story reports. In comparison, 2008’s "Andromeda Strain" attracted 4.8 million viewers for its first night, according to the story.

"Coma" is a remake of the Robin Cook medical thriller, and stars Lauren Ambrose, Geena Davis, Richard Dreyfuss, James Woods and Ellen Burstyn.

  1. Maybe everyone who SAW the “Andromeda Strain” mini-series were convinced to stay away because of the complete mess they made of THAT production! Seriously, you’d have done better to just take Robert Wise’s film and try to dig up some unused footage or something and run that as a mini-series (it’s almost long enough already) than the garbage A&E tried to pass off as “Andromeda Strain”.
