Sex Finale Attracts Huge Audience

Publish date:

Home Box Office bid adieu to its hit Sex and the City Sunday night to the show’s biggest audience of the season.

The series finale attracted 10.6 million viewers with a 6.5 national household rating and a 10 share according to Nielsen Media Research. That was good enough for third place in competition among the big four networks, behind ABC’s Super Millionaire and NBC’s Law & Order: Criminal Intent in total viewership, but ahead of CBS and Fox.

In the HBO-only universe, about 30 million subscribers, Sex collected a 22 household rating and a 28 share. Over the final eight episodes, Sex and the City averaged 6.1 million viewers.
