FX’s Timothy Olyphant starrer “Justified” garnered 3.1 million total viewers Tuesday night for its season-three debut, down 11% from the 3.5 million for the season-two premiere.

In the 18-49 demo, the skein drew 1.3 million, which was off a hefty 24% (1.7 million). However Tuesday’s first episode was up versus season-two averages in total viewers by 16% and in 18-49 by 9%.

Olyphant, who plays a U.S. marshal based in Kentucky, toplines the Sony Television-produced skein. Walton Goggins, Nick Searcy, Joelle Carter and Natalie Zea are among the co-stars.

Show was created by Graham Yost, and he exec produces with Fred Golan, Sarah Timberman, Carl Beverly, Michael Dinner and Elmore Leonard.

At FX’s recent Television Critics Assn. tour session, network president John Landgraf reiterated the importance of cumulative viewing and noted that a series can ultimately receive about three times as many viewers as it draws from its initial weekly telecast.
