The second season averaged 1.9 million viewers during its first seven days, according to Nielsen, which released an Amazon show’s figures for the first time.
The Amazon series The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel won the first three awards handed out Sunday, sweeping the comedy series awards. It won best ensemble in a comedy series, as well as individual honors for Rachel Brosnahan and Tony Shalhoub, whose win was a surprise in a category that included Bill Hader (Barry) and Michael Douglas (The Kominsky Method).
The Americans and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel tied for top television winners in the Critics Choice Awards with three apiece. Maisel won the top comedy honor for the second year in a row, and series star Rachel Brosnahan also was a repeat winner for best actress in a comedy series.
Associated Press writer Alicia Rancilio gives the top spot to the Amazon Prime hit. “From its costumes to the dialogue to the music to the quirky characters, this show is a delight. Watch it to feel good.”
