‘Seal Team Six’ Premiere Draws 2.7M Viewers On Nat Geo Channel

National Geographic Channel‘s broadcast of Seal Team Six: The Raid On Osama Bin Laden drew an average of 2.7 million viewers last night, making it the network’s top show of 2012 and its sixth-highest-rated broadcast in its six-year history. The two-hour special presentation directed by John Stockwell scored a 1.4 in the adults 25-54 demo, more than four times Nat Geo’s Sunday average (the average viewership in the demo last night was 1.27 million). It is the highest-rated telecast on the network in the demo since the premiere of George W. Bush: The 9/11 Interview in August 2011. Nat Geo’s highest-rated show in the demo was Inside 9/11: Zero Hour, which garnered a 2.88 rating when it aired in August 2005.
