The Idol Premiere Ratings: HBO’s ‘The Idol’ Ratings Debut Behind ‘Euphoria’

With the start of this month, many new films and series have been launched and even the audience has shown great interest in them. However, some of them did not perform well on the screen but managed to get fine ratings such as The Idol. It is the new controversial poorly-reviewed series of HBO that has its 1st ratings numbers in and they are…fine. Not good, not bad, but many watchers wonder what kind of drop-off we will see for the 2nd episode, given how poorly 1st episode went. This drama drew 913,000 watchers for the launch, which is 17% lower as compared to the release of 1st season Euphoria.

It is quite shocking that the creator of “The Idol” is also the creator of “Euphoria” and shockingly one series is poorly reviewed and one is good. Sam Levinson has created both series and fans are shocked by his work in both series. Though it is not a ratings disaster. Those numbers are close to even with the 1st season of The White Lotus which had around 944,000 viewers. Though, The White Lotus had wonderful word of mouth. Due to the stunning storyline, the viewership wants to watch every single episode of the 1st season of The White Lotus.

For context, “Euphoria” drew 1.1 million viewers when it launched in 2019. The second HBO outing of Levinson is hence 17% behind his first.

Fans are quite sad with the storyline of “The Idol” as they had high expectations from it. As of now, we have this many details but we will share more details as soon as we get them.
