It beat the 1.7 million people who watched last season's finale, and shows how the drama is gaining in popularity as its end nears. The first-night viewership is generally only a fraction of how many people will eventually tune in; with delayed viewing each of last season's episodes had an average of 7.2 million viewers. CNN critic Brian Lowry says there was a lot going on in the first episode, most of it setting up action to come between media mogul Logan Roy and his fractious family.
