Did you catch the premiere of Showtime’s mini-series on George Jones and Tammy Wynette this weekend? Turns out a LOT of us did. Episode one of “George & Tammy” aired Sunday on Showtime, Paramount+, and CMT, and pulled in 3.3 million combined viewers.
According to Showtime, that makes it their most-watched premiere ever.
The fact that it aired right after “Yellowstone” probably didn’t hurt.
Jessica Chastain plays Tammy, and Michael Shannon plays George. If you don’t know his name, you know his face. He did 56 episodes of “Boardwalk Empire”, and played Zod in “Man of Steel” and “Batman vs. Superman”.
Five more episodes are set to air every Sunday, between now and January 8th.
