HBO’s The Leftovers premiered to 1.8 million viewers for its initial telecast on Sunday night, according to Nielsen estimates, putting it below the network’s other high-profile dramas over the last few years. When including a late-Sunday repeat, the two-episode total for The Leftovers was 2.1 million. In its two airings, True Blood grossed 3.5 million.
The Leftovers comes from Warner Bros. Television and was created by Damon Lindelof and Tom Perrotta, based on the novel of the same name by the latter. It centers on the fallout from the abrupt disappearance of 2% of the world’s population, and the people in a suburban community who were not taken. The cast includes Justin Theroux, Amy Brenneman and Liv Tyler, and the pilot was directed by Peter Berg.
