TV Ratings Report: A Very Strong Following

by at . Comments

Airing after one of the most exciting Conference Championship games in recent memory helped The Following Season 2 get off to a strong start last night, as the Kevin Bacon-anchored drama set a series high among young adult.

It earned a 4.4 rating for 18-49-year olds, a 38 percent increase over last year's premiere.

The real test, however, will come after tonight's second episode...
