Ratings: HBO’s “True Detective” with Jodie Foster Rises 20% from Last Week, Still Down 50% from Previous Season


“True Detective: Night Country” picked up some steam on Sunday night.

The fourth season of the HBO drama rose 20% over last week in linear numbers — meaning people who watched on HBO and no place else.

Total viewers was 678,000, which is pretty good. But the season 4 average is still off by 50% from season 3 in 2019.

The key demo average is down 76% from 2019.

Still, “Night Country” is growing. HBO says including Max, next day and so on, the total was 2.8 million. That means almost no one is watching HBO at home on TV, but on their phones, computers, and toaster ovens.

Maybe now that Foster has been nominated for a new Oscar, more people will tune in this coming week!
