1883 Obviously a very good year for Paramount+.
The streaming service announced on Tuesday that Yellowstone Sunday’s premiere of the prequel set a record as “the most-watched original series premiere ever,” even as Paramount+ was known as CBS All Access.
Paramount + note that 1883 debuted “more than double” the previous record, though it declined to specify which Paramount+/CBS All Access series previously held the title. Other than that, there aren’t any detailed numbers. (But the superlative is the superlative.)
In addition to the streaming numbers, 1883 also brought in a total of 4.9 million viewers through a linear broadcast special on Paramount Network, following the December 19 episode of Yellowstone.
