The initial results for “The Get Down” indicate that the show has not been a big hit, a likely disappointment for the streamer given that it cost at least $120 million to produce, as Variety reported in July.
The first six episodes of the 12-part “Get Down” premiered Aug. 12. According to Symphony Advanced Media, “The Get Down” in the first 31 days of release garnered 3.2 million total viewers among U.S. adults 18-49, with an average audience rating in the demo of 2.33.
That’s less than half the audience of several other Netflix originals over the same 31-day time frame after premiere. “Orange Is The New Black” season 4, for example, had 15.56 million 18-49 viewers in that window (with a rating of 11.25), followed by “Fuller House” (15.23 million, 11.01), “Stranger Things” (13.23 million, 9.56), “Making a Murderer” (12.28 million, 8.87) and “Marvel’s Daredevil” season 2 (8.18 million, 5.92), per SymphonyAM.
