A week after the release of Netflix’s Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, the ratings for the four-part event have been leaked via Symphony Advanced Media. The company reported that 4.97 million viewers in the 18-49 age demographic have watched the revival. According to Deadline, this ranks Gilmore Girls (so far) as the third most watched show on Netflix with a 2016 release date behind Fuller House (7.3 million viewers) and Orange Is the New Black (5.8 million viewers).
More viewers watched the first installment of the four titled, “Winter” totaling 5.99 million viewers in the first three days of streaming. This means that over 80% of viewers watched the entire four episodes.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, if Gilmore Girls was broadcasted on television with the numbers it received, its rating would amount to 3.6 in the 18-49 age demographic. This number equates to similar ratings as How to Get Away with Murder, Grey’s Anatomy, and Modern Family. These shows all hold top spots among the highest rated shows of the 2015-2016 season (The Wrap).
Overall, this means that Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life appears to be a hit for Netflix and is projected to grow in viewership as the holiday season approaches. Due to its success, the question that is now posed is: Will there be more Gilmore? The answer is still up in the air as creator Amy Sherman Palladino said in an interview with TVLine’s Michael Ausiello that, “No one is talking about that right now. We’re all very tired. I have to finish this Amazon pilot [The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel], which I’m very proud of. Dan and I have been in a Gilmore cocoon for a year and a half. It’s been very intense. So we’re stepping back now. We’re happy it’s out. We’re happy we can talk about it.”
