[Ed. – What is wrong with America, that anyone is watching this series?]
The long wait for I Am Cait ended Sunday night with the premiere of E!’s latest reality series — and while Caitlyn Jenner‘s first solo reality vehicle definitely popped, initial ratings might not be as high as many would have guessed.
Per live-plus-same day Nielsen ratings, the first episode of I Am Cait brought an average audience of 2.73 million viewers. That’s slightly stronger from a typical night-of showing from Keeping Up With the Kardashians. (Jenner’s original E! entry hasn’t topped 3 million night-of viewers since 2013.)
Among those 2.73 million viewers, more than half (1.5 million) were adults 18-49. And, with a total of four airings across the night, the show did gross 6.2 million viewers. …
I Am Cait will have a shorter run, at least where reality is concerned, running another seven episodes this summer.
