What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on the WGN America cable channel, the Outsiders TV show follows the Farrell clan. High in the rugged hills of Appalachian Kentucky, this tight-knit isolationist family of renegades has lived atop Shay Mountain for over two hundred years. The Farrells are constantly at odds with those who live outside of their community. The cast includes Joe Anderson, David Morse, Ryan Hurst, Gillian Alexy, Kyle Gallner, Thomas M. Wright, and Christina Jackson.
Season Two Ratings
The second season of The Outsiders averaged a 0.21 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 772,000 viewers. Compared to season one, that’s down by 28% in the demo and down by 6% in terms of average total audience size. Find out how The Outsiders stacks up against the other WGN America TV shows.
WGN America is still pretty new to producing original series. Consider Salem, which was cancelled in December of 2016. Its third and final season averaged a 0.08 in the demo and 259,000 viewers. Similarly, WGN’s cancelled Manhattan TV series finished with a 0.03 in the demo and an average a total audience of 239,000. For now, I’m inclined to think Outsiders has a way to fall, before it is in real danger of cancellation. I’m okay with that. The Farrells look a bit too grimy for even me to eat.
4/14 Update: Outsiders has been cancelled by WGN America, amidst rumors the network is being sold off. Details here.
