Can we wait til Sunday?
HBO’s “Mare of Easttown” is headed into its 7th and final episode with 1.2 million viewers this past Sunday just onthe main network.
All together, on all HBO platforms, “Mare of Easttown” is up to 2 million fans on Sunday nights. This is extraordinary on so many levels. And though there are snarkers out there nitpicking various parts of it, “Mare” is a word of mouth hit. Everyone is talking about it. People who don’t watch it have caught up in the last couple of weeks because they don’t want to feel left out of it.
HBO will have a field day with the Emmys on this one and “The Undoing.” They’re going to have Kate Winslet and Nicole Kidman in the same category. They may have Hugh Grant and Evan Peters and Guy Pearce all in the same category. And then just from “Mare” they’ll have Jean Smart and Julianne Nicholson, at least.
I have the 7th episode but I’m afraid to watch it before Sunday. I’ll let you know if I change my mind. But I don’t want “Mare” to end!
