‘Boss' Premiere Delivers 659K Viewers for Starz

Premiere night audience totals 1 million on Friday

The premiere of new Starz political drama Boss, starring Kelsey Grammer, drew
659,000 total viewers at 10 p.m. Friday, with a cumulative Friday night
audience of 1.05 million.

The 10 p.m. airing's viewership equaled that of Starz' Spartacus: Blood and Sand premiere in
January 2010 but paled the 1.1 million that tuned in for the Spartacus: Gods of the Arena debut last

Starz has already committed to a second season of Boss, renewing the series almost a month
before its Oct. 21 debut.
