‘Ms. Marvel’ Boasts Record-Low Viewership Numbers
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has seen its newest hero unveiled with thunderous applause from critics- despite some of the best attempts at cutting it down- but it has proven, thus far, to have arrived at a small audience, as Ms. Marvel boasts Record-low viewership numbers for Marvel Studios.
It is a character that is among the most unique, likable, and interesting that the Marvel comics have had; and it was a hero that would often be categorized as a fan favorite.
Kamala Khan has had a passionate and committed fanbase in her run in the world of marvel comics, but it appears as though her transition into the world of live action adaptations. has not proven to be as fruitful.
With the critical community loudly and proudly singing the praises of the MCU adaptation, it turns out the audiences have not shown up in the way that many had hoped; or in the way that is deserving of what is clearly a fantastically executed series.
According to SambaTV- the entity that is most known for its work in tracking down the audience numbers for streaming networks and specific programs, Ms. Marvel is on track to have record-low viewership numbers for her debut series.
The most recent report on its premiere episode stated that (Via The Direct) Ms. Marvel was watched by a mere 775K households in the U.S; being the first Marvel CInematic Universe series to not provide at least a million viewers.
There are some factors that could prove impacting Ms. Marvel’s viewership numbers; most notably being her competition, with Disney+ having Obi-Wan Kenobi premiering at the exact same time and day.
In the same window of time, the fan-favorite Star Wars hero debuted to 2.1 Million households; which could explain the lack of audiences taking in the Ms. Marvel premiere.
It could also be the youthful focus of the series; with many adults assuming that the program is targeted at children, feeling like it was an MCU project they could skip.
Whatever the reason, the low viewership numbers are not indicative of the tremendous series that Ms. Marvel has already proven to be in its first two installments.
