Viewers Drawn to Comedy’s Drawn Together

The debut episode of Comedy Central’s Drawn Together drew a good number of eyeballs Wednesday night.

The “animated reality” series posted a 2.03 Nielsen Media Research household rating and a 1.34 among viewers 18-49, making it “the highest-rated premiere for an animated reality series in television history,” the network said in a tongue-in-cheek prepared statement.

Overall, 2.2 million viewers watched Drawn Together (1.4 million 18-49), and 2.9 million watched the new South Park episode that preceded it (1.67 million 18-49), Comedy said.
