People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story hits record 12 million viewers with DVR numbers
Twenty years later, it appears viewers still can’t get enough of the O.J. Simpson trial.
FX has just released the Live +3 numbers (overnight ratings were already record-breaking) for The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story and they’re pretty great: 12 million viewers total and 6.1 million in the pivotal 18-49 demo. ACS is now officially FX’s highest-rated drama debut ever.
This week’s episode will certainly yield a high tune-in factor — it’s an intense recreation of Simpson’s iconic White Bronco chase directed by executive producer Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story).
The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story airs at Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on FX.
