“Doomsday Preppers” closes its first season as NGC’s highest-rated series ever

The Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence has called it a “guilty pleasure,” and apparently many others agree. National Geographic Channel’s Doomsday Preppers just ended its first season, and the numbers have it closing as the network’s highest-rated series ever.

According to NGC, this past Tuesday’s season finale of Preppers had 861,000 people 2+ tuning in, with 541,000 in the P25-54 demo, and averaging P25-54 0.6 rating, which is on par with the show’s successful P25-54 0.6 for the full 11-episode season.

Next week, NGC will air a bonus “Best Of” compilation episode (“Extreme Prep Edition”) focusing on individuals preparing for the end of the world as we know it. This episode premieres Tuesday, April 24, at 9pm ET/PT. Season 2 of Doomsday Preppers will premiere later this fall.
