The Season 2 premiere enjoyed ratings that were "nine times higher" than the Season 1 premiere in June 2019, though there was no HBO Max at the time. Also of note is that the 2.4 million viewers across all platforms for Euphoria Season 2's premiere only counts people who watched it immediately. So the numbers will undoubtedly grow this week and beyond as people catch up and watch at their leisure.
The network said that the Sam Levinson-created series’ second-season debut scored nine times higher than its Season 1 premiere in digital viewing, which came in June 2019 via HBO Go and HBO Now. HBO did not provide a viewership number for Euphoria‘s linear broadcast last night; for its series premiere, that number was 577,000 viewers and grew to almost 1 million, including a replay.
The Season 2 premiere was the No. 1-ranked asset on HBO Max on Sunday, the network said, a claim backed up by a flurry of tweets last night reporting the HBO Max app had been crashing around 9 p.m., the time the episode was made available.
