Archer ratings solid. Season 5 on the way.
The official announcement yesterday for Archer season 5 came as no surprise. As we reported last year, Mr. Reed signed on for not just season 4 and 5 at the same time, but also the option of a 6th and 7th season. With Archers’ steady growth in ratings each season, we expect Archer and the Isis gang to be sticking around for a while, and also expect to continue loving every minute of it.
Archer is doing quite well over all, as Deadline Hollywood reports:
Archer has posted dramatic ratings growth every year. So far in 2013, it ranks as cable’s No. 2 series in delivery of men 18-34 behind The Walking Dead, and it has ranked as television’s No. 1 program in that demo in the Thursday 10 PM time period in four of the past six weeks (Live+Same Day). Through four episodes this season, Archer is posting gains of +44% in adults 18-34 and +36% in adults 18-49 compared to its Season 3 average. First-run episodes are averaging 2.37 million total viewers, 2.01 million adults 18-49, and 1.41 million adults 18-34 (Live+7). Compared with the first season, Season 4 has increased its audience by +92% in total viewers, +129% in adults 18-34, +159% in men 18-34, +128% in adults 18-49, and +160% in men 18-49 (Live+7).
