If you aren't watching Downton Abbey, you might want to start. The PBS Masterpiece earned huge ratings on Sunday's season two premiere of the hit show.
PBS says that number not only doubled their primetime average, but it was higher than the average season one numbers by 18 percent.
As they should be, PBS execs are thrilled.
“Downton Abbey officially takes its place among the best of Masterpiece titles since the series began in 1971,” executive producer Rebecca Eaton said of the series. “It’s beautifully done and draws in millions of viewers — what more could we ask for?”
Don't miss the next episode of Downton Abbey on Sunday night at 9 p.m. on PBS!
