The third-season premiere of Six Feet Under was a big draw for Home Box Office
Sunday night, although not as big as last year.
Six Feet Under attracted a 10.6 rating with 5.1 million viewers among HBO
subscribers, according to Nielsen Media Research.
HBO defines its universe as the 38 million HBO and Cinemax customers, while
Nielsen puts the mark at 34 million.
Six Feet Under's 2002 season premiere notched a 12.1 rating and 6.2
But the finale scored a 10.7, on par with last weekend's debut rating.
