“Bates Motel” ratings break network record with 4.6 million viewers

Another premiere, another ratings record for A&E.

Bates Motel premiered last night to 4.6 million viewers, and in breaking down the demographics became the most-watched series debut among adults 18-49 and 25-54 (1.6 million). The comptemporized prequel to the Psycho films, starring Freddie Highmore as a teenage Norman Bates and Vera Farmiga as his, um, difficult mother has earned raves from critics and now audiences.

Those who missed the debut episode can catch an ¬†encore presentation at 11pm ET/PT after tomorrow’s episode of Duck Dynasty (good pairing, right?). New episodes of Bates Motel premiere Mondays at 10pm ET/PT.
