Recently Renewed Drama is Attracting An Average of 5 Million Viewers an Episode and Ranks as 2nd Most Watched Series on Cable

Los Angeles, August 6, 2018 - The Dutton family's list of enemies keeps growing each week, but so does its number of fans. The new Paramount Network's recently renewed drama, "Yellowstone," set series high ratings in Live+3 viewing. Episode six entitled "The Remembering" delivered a new ratings benchmark of 1.3 P 18-49. The season one finale bows Wednesday, August 22 at 10 PM, ET/PT, with season two premiering next year.

The critically acclaimed drama stars world-renowned Oscar(R) and Emmy(R) Award-winning actor Kevin Costner along with Luke Grimes, Kelly Reilly, Wes Bentley, Cole Hauser, Kelsey Asbille, Brecken Merrill, Jefferson White, Danny Huston and Gil Birmingham.

"Yellowstone" chronicles the Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Kevin Costner), who controls the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect - the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders - an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and America's first national park.

"Yellowstone" is written and directed by critically-acclaimed, Oscar(R)-nominated screenwriter Taylor Sheridan ("Wind River," "Hell or High Water" and "Sicario").

Following a record-setting debut that attracted 5.3 million viewers, the series now ranks as cable's most-watched series of 2018 behind "The Walking Dead." Season to date, the series is averaging 5 million viewers and registering a 1.4 rating with P 18-49, 2.0 P 25-54 and 1.9 W 25-54 (Most Current). New episodes premiere Wednesdays at 10pm ET/PT only on Paramount Network. New mid-season trailer here.

Executive producers for "Yellowstone" are John Linson, Art Linson, Taylor Sheridan, Kevin Costner and David C. Glasser. Ted Gold and Lauren Ruggiero are the executives in charge of production for Paramount Network.

The success of "Yellowstone" marks the six-month-old network's third successful scripted launch in a row. Back in January, the limited-series "Waco," which scored three Emmy(R) nominations, premiered to the best ratings for an ad-supported cable drama debut in nearly six months. In June, the network's first scripted-comedy "American Woman," bowed to the highest P/W18-49 and W25-54 ratings for an ad-supported cable scripted half-hour series premiere since early January.
