TBS, a division of Turner, has another comedy hit on its hands with The Detour, which shot out of the starting gate last week to rank as cable's #1 new comedy series of the year among adults 18-49. TBS announced two weeks ago that it has already ordered a 13-episode second season of The Detour. The show marks the latest in a string of acclaimed hits launched by the network this year, a growing list that includes Angie Tribeca and Full Frontal with Samantha Bee. New episodes of The Detour premiere each Monday at 9/8c on TBS, tbs.com and the Watch TBS mobile app, with availability on TBS On Demand and TV providers' websites and apps the next day. The Detour is an often too honest look at the family dynamic and the chaos that erupts from not being truthful with the ones we love. Starring Jason Jones, Natalie Zea, Ashley Gerasimovich and Liam Carroll.
Here are some of the highlights from The Detour's early success:
The Detour is reaching an average of 5.3 million viewers across TBS platforms through its first two episodes (the April 11 premiere, which was followed immediately by the second episode).
The Detour's reach includes 1.5 million viewers and 848,000 adults 18-49 in Live + 3 delivery, the latter making it cable's top new comedy series with young adults for the year-to-date.
The Detour has drawn a large number of viewers through time-shifted viewing, with the first two episodes charting a +37% increase among adults 18-49 in Live + 3 vs. Live + Same Day.
Success for The Detour extends beyond the television screen to include exceptional digital and social media engagement. Leading up to last week's launch, the show drew 39 million social media impressions through Facebook and Twitter.
TBS also made the pilot available to watch via social media the weekend prior to show's launch, scoring a total of 8.7 million video views across Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
