TNT’s science-fiction series Falling Skies, returned this past Sunday with a two hour premiere that was watched by 4.46 million total viewers, with 1.87 million of those viewers in the Adults 18-49 demo (a 1.5 rating) and 2.19 million viewers in the Adults 25-54 demo.

Those numbers are down 25% compared to the show’s series premiere last year (5.9 million total viewers/2.0 rating A18-49), which ranked as basic cable’s #1 new series in adults 18-49 last year. That said, the series was facing stiff competition on Sunday night from the NBA finals as well as new episodes of Suits (USA Network), The Borgias (Showtime), Girls (HBO), True Blood (HBO) and the season finale of The Killing (AMC). It should also be noted that the season premiere’s numbers were more or less steady with the live+same day averages for the show’s first season (4.6 million total viewers/1.6 rating A18-49).
