The third season premiere of Power opened with huge numbers.

50 Cent’s drama set the all-time high in viewership for the Starz network.

The July 17 episode totaled 2.26 million live-plus-same-day viewers, the most ever for Starz. Outlander‘s season two premiere was the previous record holder (1.46 million Live + Same Day Viewers).

Power also increased 58% in viewers compared to the season two premiere and 47% in viewers compared to the season two finale.

“We are thrilled Power continues to be a force in its third season with this record setting performance – something very few shows ever achieve,” said Starz President and CEO Chris Albrecht. “We are proud to say the show is must-watch TV and has helped to establish Starz as a Sunday destination for viewers.”
