Younger Notches Record Ratings as Season Five Heats Up

by Stuart Winchester, Viacom

Younger keeps getting stronger. The TV Land mainstay’s fourth season, which wrapped last September, was the highest-rated and most-watched in the show’s history. Liza and the gang then outdid themselves by landing as the No. 1 original ad-supported cable sitcom with the key women’s demographics of 18-49 and 25-54 (Nielsen, L+3) for all of 2017.

Kelsey, Josh, Charles and company are back for season five, and the intricate web of rivalries and romances spinning around central character Liza’s secret (she’s 40 and pretending to be 25), are resonating with viewers more than ever. Episode two, which followed up on the #MeToo-centric, jaw-dropper-filled season premiere, marked the highest-rated and most-watched second week performance in series history. More than 1.2 million average viewers watched, good for a 1.21 rating among women 25-54, and .81 ratings among all adults in that age group. Take a look:

With new bombshells dropping each episode of the Darren Star-produced hit, ratings could stay strong for the remainder of this season’s seven-episode run.

TV Land has already renewed Younger for season six. Watch new episodes every Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET.
