TRUE DETECTIVE Has Good Premiere, Despite Globes

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in True Detective

Despite the Golden Globes having its best night in ten years, as far as ratings go, HBO's True Detective, bold enough to premiere against the Globes, premiered to just over 2 million viewers.

This was the second biggest premiere since Steve Buscemi's Boardwalk Empire, back in 2010.

Now the big question remains:  Were these 2.3 million viewers on board because HBO had a free weekend in many cable households?

Or will the show, starring Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson, keep some kind of decent draw.

Either way, I've seen good words about the show from various resources.


If you missed the premiere, it will reair on HBO on Wednesday, Jan 15 at 10pm.

"TRUE DETECTIVE is written by Nic Pizzolatto and directed by Cary Fukunaga. It centers on two detectives, Rust Cohle (Matthew McConaughey) and Martin Hart (Woody Harrelson), whose lives collide and entwine during a seventeen-year hunt for a serial killer in Louisiana. The investigation of a bizarre murder in 1995 is framed and interlaced with testimony from the detectives in 2012, when the case has been reopened.

Watch new episodes of True Detective every Sunday at 9PM, only on HBO.
