A&E’s Bates Motel averaged 3 million viewers at 10:00 p.m. and picked up 1.6 million more later on Monday night. With 2.5 million of them in the 25-54 age group and 2.4 million in the 18-49 demo, it was the network’s most-watched original drama series debut ever among those key demos. (The debut of last year’s Longmire on A&E drew slightly more total viewers, but slightly fewer voters in the younger demos.) In a statement, A&E President Bob DeBitetto, said, “We are extremely pleased with the initial viewer response to this edgy and provocative series and are confident that it will continue to draw in new audiences.”
