A week’s vacation for Memorial Day weekend did Syfy’s Sanctuary a world of good. The show returned with a new episode this week, turning in its best live viewership numbers since the show was moved to Mondays.
“Carentan,” the eighteenth episode of the season, drew an estimated 915,000 viewers (Live + Same Day) on June 6, with a 0.3 rating in the key demographic of adults 18 to 49.
That’s a massive 39 percent recovery over the May 23 episode, which was Sanctuary‘s lowest ever.
