'The Killing' Viewership Down in FinaleAMC drama draws 1.4 million to episode that finally revealed killer 6/19/2012 02:17:20 PM Eastern
The season two finale of AMC's The Killing drew 1.4 million viewers at 9 p.m. Sunday, down 22% from the 1.8 million that watched its premiere in April.
Overall, the drama's second season has been down over its
first after the series' creator controversially decided not to answer The Killing's central question -- who
killed Rosie Larsen -- in its season one finale.
That question was finally answered in Sunday's finale, which
averaged a 0.5 rating with adults 18-49, mostly on par with what the series has
averaged this season. It is worth noting that Sunday's finale faced competition from Game 3 of
the NBA Finals on ABC.
AMC has not yet renewed The
Killing for a third season.
