The total viewers for the episode were 7.60 million, with a 1.5 Rating and a 5 Share for the key 18-49 demographic. The episode ranked 2nd in its time slot and 4th for the overall evening ranking.
Wow! A big improvement over the downward trend we’ve seen since the premiere of Season 3 of WDYTYA. The number of viewers rose by over 33% since last week and the 18-49 demographic rating was up a whopping 50%.
This is more amazing given the fact that many cities in the Ohio Valley and the South were under tornado watches most of the evening and many local stations opted to show weather updates instead of regular programming.
There are seven more episodes of Who Do You Think You Are? left this season – let’s hope that the huge ratings jump last night is the start of an upward trend.
