'Hatfields & McCoys' Again Tops 13 Million Viewers in Night Two

The second installment was down 6% from Monday night's premiere, which delivered a cable-record 13.9 million viewers, the most for a entertainment telecast in the history of ad-supported cable. Part two's 13.1 million viewers makes it the No. 2 entertainment telecast ever by the same measure.
In the demos, Tuesday's episode drew 4.7 million adults 18-49, down 2%, and 5.8 million adults 25-54, which was flat.
The conclusion of the three-part miniseries airs Wednesday at 9 p.m.
Kevin Costner deserves much credit for his mature judgment in scripts and his intuitive feel for both dialogue and action sequences. The decision to film in the mountains of Romania was shrewd and offers a stunning visual resource --- even those horses! --- that's hard to categorize and harder to resist. Tom Bernenger has never been as good in any role I've seen him. Mare Winningham is right in the apron pocket. Oh, that Strother Martin would have been around for one last fling in this one! More from Costner, MORE!
