Ghosts spooked up record viewership with its holiday-themed episode on Thursday. The special one-hour episode of the CBS comedy took home an average of 7M viewers, according to live + same day Nielsen data.
That’s a +7% gain from the series’ average viewership across Season 2.
The episode also played well on social media, driving over 119M potential social impressions, the largest totals since the season 2 premiere on September 29, CBS reports. That’s about a 22% increase in social impressions week-over-week.
Ghosts has been quite popular since it launched last year. In September, Season 2 premiered to a same-day audience of 6.15M, winning its half-hour and jumping 11% over Season 1’s premiere.
After 35 days of delayed viewing, the Season 2 premiere managed to draw more than 10M viewers — the only broadcast comedy to do so. Out of the top 30 season premieres, the sophomore series sat at No. 6 on the chart.
