Yellowstone Hits Ratings High with Episode 4

Yellowstone Episode 4 Draws Record 8 Million Viewers

The fourth episode of the hit show Yellowstone on CBS drew a massive audience of 8 million viewers on Sunday night. This viewership sets a new high for the neo-Western drama series and makes Episode 4 the most watched scripted telecast on broadcast television since the series finale of The Big Bang Theory in 2019.

Highest Viewership Yet for Yellowstone

The 8 million viewers for Yellowstone’s latest episode top the 7.5 million who tuned in for Episode 3 earlier this month. The show has continued to build its audience with each episode in Season 5 so far. This increasing viewership demonstrates that Yellowstone is reaching new fans even in its fifth season on air.

Leading the Summer TV Ratings

The record ratings for Episode 4 cement Yellowstone’s spot as the #1 most watched summer broadcast TV show in over 25 years. It has now surpassed previous popular summer hits like America’s Got Talent, The Bachelorette, and Big Brother. Yellowstone’s appointment viewing style has drawn in viewers across wide demographics, especially older audiences.

Kevin Costner Drives Viewers

Much of the appeal of Yellowstone lies with its lead actor Kevin Costner, who stars as John Dutton, the patriarch fighting to maintain his family’s sprawling Montana ranching empire. Costner’s star power and the show’s high production values have helped it stand out in the crowded TV landscape. The show airs on Paramount Network but the latest episode was simulcast on CBS to drive new viewers.

Renewal Announced

On the heels of the record ratings for Season 5, Paramount Network announced it has already renewed Yellowstone for a fifth season. The network credits Yellowstone with growing viewership almost 50 percent compared to last season and bringing in the biggest audience ever for Paramount Network. With its glowing ratings success, Yellowstone is sure to be a major fixture on TV for seasons to come.
