Second Season for Boardwalk Empire

Filed under: Top Stories — Tags: , — Thomas Hogan @ 11:09 am

Coming only days after the premiere of the show, “Boardwalk Empire” has been renewed for a second season.

According to HBO, the 9 p.m. premiere episode of “Boardwalk Empire” on Sunday night averaged 4.8 million viewers. This was the largest HBO series premiere since “Deadwood”, which had the advantage of having “The Sopranos” as lead-in. If you include all three back-to-back airings on Sunday night, “Boardwalk Empire” was watched by 7.1 million viewers

Those numbers sound even more impressive when you consider that “Boardwalk Empire” was up against “Manning Bowl II,” which drew a huge rating in the same male-skewed demographic as the new series.

Details on when the next season of “Boardwalk Empire” will air are not yet available.

Nelson Johnson, author of the book Boardwalk Empire, will be having a book signing at Book Expo America (BEA), tomorrow, Saturday, May 30th at the Javits Center in NYC. He will be signing copies in the autographing area of the Expo at 1:30 PM. Please also feel free to stop by the publisher’s booth (#2558) at any point during the expo. I believe the BEA event is only open to qualified members of the book trade, however.
