‘The Killing’ Season 2 Premiere Not So Hotly Watched

The second season of The Killing premiered to lower numbers than the first season did.   In fact the TV ratings for the season premiere were a third lower than they were for the first season of the show.

The Killing‘s second season pulled in an average of 1.8 million total viewers and it has folks wondering.

Many media outlets are wondering if last season’s failed delivery of the culprit for who dunnit might not have had an impact on the returning numbers.

Last season fans were seemingly expecting to learn who killed Rosie Larsen when the season came to a close, but all viewers received was a cliffhanger when a gunman approached an arrested suspect.

When the finale aired, people were pretty pissed actually and vented in all kinds of digital venues.

I too was disappointed, but it did answer my question of whether the show would find a new murder each season or drag out what they started in the first season.

But now it seems that AMC TV is going to be paying the piper.  And that surprises me because usually TV fans have short memories and are willing to forgive as things develop.  Face it, if anything, I’m the one that usually holds the grudge beyond due time!

But I did tune into the season premiere of The Killing and was rewarded with answers to other questions plus there was one heck of new layer of professional tension added to Sarah Linden’s day.

I was happy with the premiere and will be moving forward with the show, in the very strong mindset knowing that Rosie’s murder will be solved by seasons’ end.

But was the damage done already?  Will viewers return?  I’d recommend checking out The Killing again.  Even if you’re miffed, because the writing hasn’t changed and the story seems to be even better.

But that’s my take on the situation!
