‘Ballers’ Ends First Season finale as HBO’s Most-Watched Comedy in Six Years

Even though “Ballers” wrapped its first season with its smallest same-night tune-in to date,  it still finishes as the network’s most-watched half-hour program in six years. According to the network’s analysis of Nielsen data, “Ballers” averaged a gross weekly multi-platform audience of 8.8 million viewers. That puts it third all-time among HBO comedies, behind “Sex and the City” (10.3 million) and the first season of “Hung” in 2009 (9.3 million).


Ballers along with The Brink are both renewed for a second season which was  ranked  seventh among most-watched HBO comedy seasons.
