A show that premiered this month ranks as the most-watched cable drama series premiere since November 2018. Paramount Network announced Wednesday that its “68 Whiskey” pulled off the feat by attracting 2 million L+3 viewers.

The scripted series from Ron Howard and Brian Grazer, which premiered Jan. 15, also earned a 1.0 rating in adults 25-54, and jumped triple digits across key demos in L+3 viewing.

“Blending intense drama with irreverent humor, ’68 Whiskey’ follows a multicultural band of Army medics stationed in Afghanistan on a base nicknamed ‘The Orphanage,'” Paramount noted in today’s announcement. “Together, the medics navigate a dangerous and sometimes absurd world, relying on comradery, various vices, and, occasionally, a profound sense of purpose to carry them through.”

The series stars Sam Keeley, Jeremy Tardy, Gage Golightly, Cristina Rodlo, Beth Riesgraf, Lamont Thompson, Nicholas Coombe and Derek Theler.
