The final numbers are out, the Preacher pilot was watched by 3.82 million people. While 2.38 million watched on AMC live Sunday night another 1.44 million watched elsewhere. This includes DVR, Apple or Google Play stores, AMC.com broadcast or on YouTube. When all was said and done, a number just under 4 million isn’t as bad as most made it out to be.
It is also important to note that this was the third most watched cable TV show for the week of May 16-22 behind Game of Thrones and the mid season finale of Fear the Walking Dead.
