'Swamp People' Sets Ratings Record for History
Premiere of Louisiana Bayou series gives net best original debut in key demos

The Aug. 22 series premiere of Swamp People, about the denizens of the southern Louisiana marshlands and bayous, garnered 4.2 million total viewers with 2.5 million of them among 25-54-year-olds and 2.3 million among 18-49-year-olds. Those numbers were enough to make Swamp People the top-rated show on cable among total viewers and the 25-54 demo for its 10 p.m. Sunday time period.
History has ordered 10 episodes of the series.
THE ONLY THING MISSING FROM THE FIRST TWO EPISODES IS THE BROTHER-IN-LAW NAMED BUBBA WHO MARRIED CLOTHEL AND IT WAS OFFICIAL WHEN THEY JUMPED THE BROOM.
BUT HONESTLY, I DO KNOW SOME PEOPLE LIKE THOSE ON THE SHOW AND THEY ARE A BREED APART. I HOPE THE WHOLE SERIES ISN'T ABOUT CATCHING ALLIGATORS.WISH THERE WAS A PROGRAM ABOUT HOOP-NET FISHING, RUNNING TROUT LINES,
HOW THE SWAMP PEOPLE DEAL WITH CITY PEOPLE THAT "MESS WITH THEIR STUFF" ............
