Wonder Woman Draws Record Ratings in Its HBO Premiere

Wonder Woman is a blockbuster, but not only at the box office. Director Patty Jenkins’ film delivered record ratings for HBO in its television premiere.

According to Nielsen, the first undisputed hit of the DC Extended Universe drew 2.809 million in its initial telecast on Saturday night, HBO’s largest audience in two years for a feature film premiere. That’s about 300,000 more viewers than watched NBC Sports Network’s primetime coverage of the Winter Olympics that same night.

Wonder Woman also outperformed the TV premieres of previous DCEU films Man of Steel (2.374 million viewers), Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2.33 million), and Suicide Squad (2.13 million).

The Sunday evening encore attracted an additional 1.6 million viewers, presenting HBO with its best Sunday movie ratings since 2014. Better still, those Wonder Woman numbers don’t account for DVR or streaming audiences.

Starring Gal Gadot as Diana, Wonder Woman opened June 2 to critical acclaim, and went on to earn $821.9 million worldwide. It was nominated for three Critics’ Choice Awards, and won for Best Action Movie. Jenkins and Gadot will return for a sequel, targeted for release on Nov. 1, 2019.

Wonder Woman stars Gal Gadot as Diana, Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Robin Wright as General Antiope, Danny Huston as General Erich Ludendorff, David Thewlis as Ares, Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta, Elena Anaya as Doctor Poison, and Lucy Davis as Etta Candy.
