Additionally, NAKED AND AFRAID pulled in 3.471 million total viewers P2+, up 29% versus last season’s premiere and was the most watched premiere without a Wallenda lead-in.
The season premiere of NAKED AND AFRAID was that Sunday night’s #1 non-sports program on ad-supported cable with M25-54/18-49/18-34 and pulled in strong ratings among Women and Persons 12-17. The premiere was the #3 ad-supported cable program on Sunday night with women, beating E!’s Royals and Bravo’s Blood, Sweat & Heels and in its younger demo and posted a double digit increase (+16%) from last season’s premiere in P12-17 rating.
