Ratings: USA Rookie Drama ‘Mr. Robot’ Surges in Week Two
The audience for USA drama “Mr. Robot” grew nicely in its second week, making the show among the year’s top-rated cable series launches.
In Nielsen’s Live+3 estimates, which include same-night viewing and DVR playback within three days, the July 1 episode of “Mr. Robot” averaged a 1.11 rating in adults 18-49 and 3.2 million viewers overall. It shot up 36% in the demo and 13% in total viewers from the show’s June 24 premiere.

'True Detective': The Do's and Don'ts of Onscreen Death
Ray Velcoro died. It's not even that Colin Farrell's character appeared to die in "True Detective" Episode 2; it's that he really did die. After taking a shotgun blast to the chest, everyone's favorite mustached feminist lay cold and unmoving on the ground as the masked shooter slowly sauntered over him. The suspect — dressed in black and wearing a crow's mask he borrowed from that very apartment — fired another blast into Ray's chest at point blank range, before we abruptly shifted to the silent sidewalk outside Ben Caspere's Hollywood apartment; a reminder that no one would have heard the shooting thanks to the sound-proofing within. Poor Ray went there alone and died there alone, leaving the audience to wonder when and how his rotting corpse would be found in Episode 3.
