“Mare of Easttown” scored big numbers on Sunday despite HBO Max crashing right before the show went on.
The total says HBO was 3 million for both HBO and HBO Max, and another million before Monday night was over. They say it’s a total of 4 million. Not bad.
The “Mare” finale was their best showing of the 7 episodes. It beat the finale of “The Undoing” and was the most watched show so far in its time slot first run on HBO Max.
In other words, it was a monster hit. And so well done that it should garner lots of Emmy attention. HBO will have a problem on its hands, but the kind everyone likes: too many limited series nominees. “The Undoing” was just as good, but it was six months ago. People have short memories.
