tvN’s “Criminal Minds” Off To Auspicious Start With High Viewer Ratings For First Episode

tvN’s remake of “Criminal Minds” aired its first episode last night and is off to a great start!

According to ATAM, the first episode of “Criminal Minds” had an average viewer rating of 5.19 percent in the Seoul metropolitan area. It’s highest viewer rating during the episode was an unprecedented 6.56 percent.

Breaking the 5 percent threshold with their first episode is a laudable feat for a cable network show like “Criminal Minds.” To put those percentages into perspective, viewer ratings for tvN’s “Bride of the Water God,” which is currently airing as well, have stayed between the 3 to 4 percent area since its premiere earlier this month.

“Criminal Minds” stars Lee Joon Gi, Son Hyun Joo, Moon Chae Won, and more. The drama airs every Wednesday and Thursday at 10:50 p.m. KST.
