Good news for the season finale of HBO’s “The Gilded Age.”
The Julian Fellowes-produced and written soap opera rose by 100,000 viewers and finished with its top rating so far, 800K. Not bad!
Also, the key demo rose to .07, bringing the show back from the dead among younger viewers. All those people who thought I was being ageist last week pay attention: I go by the numbers only. I’m well out of the key demo.
So “The Gilded Age” leaves in good shape for Season 2. They could have a break out season next time around, especially if they spice it up a bit. A good mystery would help, too. But seeing that the final episode was very cerebral, kudos to the writers.
Now, on to the Emmy Awards!
