TNT’s ‘Salem’s Lot’ is Ratings Monster

“Variety reports that the two-part adaptation of Stephen King’s Salem’s Lot (review) was a ratings monster for the TNT network. The premiere of the first installment this past Sunday night scared up 5.9 million viewers, making it the year’s number-one longform basic-cable program and besting major networks ABC and Fox in the key 18-49-year-old demographic for the timeslot. The second part was almost as strong, pulling 5.3 million viewers on Monday night. If you missed the initial airings, you can still catch LOT in repeats this weekend: Friday, June 25 at 8 p.m. and 10 p.m.; Saturday, June 26 at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m.; and Sunday, June 27 at 10 a.m. and 12 p.m.” – Fangoria
