‘Saints & Sinners’ season finale becomes Bounce TV's most-watched program ever

On May 5, 2016

Bounce TV's first-ever original drama series “Saints & Sinners” was a smash-hit success on all fronts and the show's inaugural season finished with a bang late last month with the shocking finale becoming Bounce TV's #1 most-watched program in its nearly five year history.

The eighth episode premiere telecast on April 24 reached 1.4 million unduplicated viewers. The 9 p.m. ET series became Bounce TV's No. 1 program ever among total viewers (754,000 Persons 2+) while also posting the highest audience peak of the series to-date (839,000) and setting network records for the delivery of people ages 25-54 (358,000) and women ages 25-54 (235,000).  

This also marked the seventh Sunday night that Bounce TV beat BET in the same aforementioned groups during the run of the series.

“Saints & Sinners” has been renewed for a second season, which will premiere in the first quarter of 2017.

Bounce TV is the only emerging broadcast network producing original scripted series. The second season of the network's hit sitcom Mann & Wife is currently seen Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. ET and “In The Cut” returns for season two in July.

“Saints & Sinners” centers around the pursuit of power, intertwined with greed, deception, corruption and murder – all set against the backdrop of a large southern church. The series stars Vanessa Bell Calloway, Christian Keyes, Keith Robinson, Clifton Powell, Gloria Reuben, J.D. Williams, Jasmine Burke, Afemo Omilami and Richard Lawson.

Bounce TV is the fastest-growing African-American network on television and airs on the broadcast signals of local television stations and corresponding cable carriage.
