NEW YORK, NY – USA Network’s THE SINNER is now the #1 new cable series of 2017 in P18-49, P25-54 and total viewers,* two episodes into its eight episode series run. After a strong series premiere, THE SINNER, from Universal Cable Productions and starring Jessica Biel and Bill Pullman, grew in its second week in adults 18-49 (+7% to 1.4 million), adults 25-54 (+5% to 1.6 million) and adults 18-34 (+4% to 543,000). Over its first two episodes, the series is averaging 3.5M P2+.
"Certified (93%) Fresh” by Rotten Tomatoes, THE SINNER follows a young mother, Cora (Biel) who, when out with her husband (Christopher Abbott) and son, commits a startling act of violence and, to her horror, has no idea why. Detective Ambrose (Pullman) finds himself obsessed with uncovering the woman's buried motive, which launches an inverted and utterly surprising crime thriller whose driving force is not the “who” or the “what” -- but the “why.”
In Episode 3, debuting this Wednesday at 10/9c, Ambrose unearths a startling secret about Cora that changes the course of the investigation, while Mason takes matters into his own hands.
