‘Hell on Wheels’ down from a year ago

AMC's Western draws 2.5 million for season opener

AMC’s “Hell on Wheels” opened its second season Sunday down from a year ago.

Western starring Anson Mount, Common and Colm Meaney drew 2.5 million overall viewers, as well as 793,000 in the 18-49 demo and 1 million in the 25-54 demo.

When the series launched in November, the premiere drew 4.3 million total viewers (2.4 million in the 18-49 demo, 2.3 million in 25-54), but it had the advantage of massive hit “The Walking Dead” as a lead-in.

The season-one finale that aired in January drew 2.9 million viewers, with 933,000 in the 18-49 demo and 1.1 million in 25-54.

From Endemol USA and Entertainment One, series is exec produced by creators Joe and Tony Gayton, John Shiban, Jeremy Gold and David von Ancken. Skein is shot in Calgary, Alberta.

Cabler will conclude the first eight episodes of the final season of “Breaking Bad” on Sept. 2, and Oct. 14 will mark the debut of the new season of “The Walking Dead.”
