FX Drama Tyrant Rules Respectable Kingdom of 775K Demo Viewers

Mideast-set series gets increase over lead-in for pilot

Tyrant is off to a reasonable start, if not an earth-shaking one: the drama pulled in a .61 rating, which came out to some 775,000 viewers in the key 18-49 demo. Not bad, with plenty of room to grow—and grow it ought to, because reviews are generally favorable for the new show. Combined with a second showing later that evening, the show delivered 3.56 million viewers and 1.32 million adults 18-49.
