Who is watching the first season of the Watchmen TV show on HBO? As we all know, the Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether a TV show like Watchmen is cancelled or renewed for season two. Unfortunately, most of us do not live in Nielsen households. Because many viewers feel frustration when their viewing habits and opinions aren’t considered, we invite you to rate all of the first season episodes of Watchmen here.
An HBO superhero drama series, Watchmen is loosely based on the 1980s graphic novel series of the same name by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons. Created and developed by Damon Lindelof, the TV series is set in a world where the original story took place and begins in 2019, 34 years after the comic’s story ended. The show stars Regina King, Don Johnson, Tim Blake Nelson, Louis Gossett Jr., Jessica Camacho, Andrew Howard, Jeremy Irons, Jean Smart, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Jacob Ming-Trent, Adelaide Clemens, Frances Fisher, Tom Mison, Sara Vickers, Hong Chau, and James Wolk, with guest Robert Redford. In an alternate version of America, where superheroes are treated like outlaws, President Robert Redford (Redford) has been in office since being elected in 1992. A white supremacy group of Rorschach (an anti-hero from the original story) followers, aka “The Seventh Cavalry,” has committed simultaneous attacks on the houses of police members. As a result, the police conceal their identities behind masks.
