‘Star Trek: Discovery’ Premiere Draws 9.6 Million Viewers on CBS

The overnight numbers are in and Star Trek: Discovery‘s series premiere “The Vulcan Hello” drew approximately 8.2 9.6 million views, making it one of the most-viewed programs on Sunday night.

*The premiere of Star Trek: Discovery has been updated from 8.2 to 9.6 million by the Nielsen.

How Discovery stacks up against other Star Trek premieres:

The 2001 premiere of Star Trek: Enterprise “Broken Bow” saw 12.5 million views, while the first episode of Star Trek: Voyager “Caretaker” on UPN had 21.3 million, and Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s “Encounter at Farpoint” had 15.7 million views.

It should be noted that while Discovery may not had reached the pinnacles of its predecessors, the television landscape has changed dramatically in recent years.

Following the premiere on CBS, the series’ second episode “Battle at Binary Stars” was made available on CBS All Access. Additionally, all future episodes will be released on over-the-top streaming service in the United States on Sundays. The first half of the season will run through November 5, with the series returning in January 2018.

CBS issued a press release on Sunday night noting that Star Trek: Discovery was responsible for the largest single-day sign-ups in the history of CBS All Access, since the service was launched in 2014.
