50 Cent is still laughing straight to the bank. This television show POWER is clocking big enough numbers to become one of the highest-rated television shows on cable.
Deadline reports that co-executive producer Courtney Kemp signed a new overall deal with Starz after the growing success of the show. The deal will allow her to produce shows for Starz and Lionsgate Studio and then shop them out to other outlets.
In that news, Deadline also wrote that the Season 3 premiere was up 58% from Season 2 and 389% from Season 1. But here is the bombshell:
When multiplatform and delayed viewing is factored in, Power has been averaging an audience of around 8 million. That makes it the second-most-watched series on premium cable after HBO’s Emmy-winning Game of Thrones.
