'Justified' Rocks Ratings with Premiere Episode

Timothy Olyphant of FX's The premiere episode of FX's 'Justified' was a lot of fun to watch and apparently, I wasn't the only one who thought so.

Tuesday's episode, titled "Fire in the Hole" after the Elmore Leonard novella upon which the series is based, scored 4.2 million sets of eyeballs, the network's second highest rating since the premiere of 'The Shield.'

Naturally, the show scored more older than younger viewers, but my gut tells me that could change once word spreads about the type of show it is and the quality it can produce. Sure it's a pseudo-western, but it has a very updated and edgy feel. It's fun for the whole family, if your family is one of those weird groups that lets their kids watch anything whether it's an edgy Western drama or late night Cinemax.

While I'm pleased for the show and will try to catch the premiere soon, doesn't this say more about the promotion of the episode than the quality of the show? That's not meant to be derogatory, just an observation. (I'm in the UK so don't know how it was promoted State-side)
