New York, NY - May 23, 2013 - The Americans, the most critically-acclaimed new drama of the year and recipient of four Critics' Choice Television Award nominations, concluded its first season tied for most-watched FX freshman drama ever, and as the #1 most time-shifted drama in FX history.

Inclusive of Live+7 data, The Americans averaged 3.4 million Total Viewers, tying it with Justified as the most-watched first season of any FX drama series (13 total).

The Americans' audience delivery catapulted an incredible +93% among Adults 18-49, and posted a gain of +83% in Total Viewers - 15 points ahead of FX's second most time-shifted drama, Justified (+68% in Season 4).

The Americans received four Critics' Choice Television Award nominations - the most of any first year drama series. In addition to the nomination for Best Drama Series, The Americans scored noms for Keri Russell as Best Actress in a Drama Series, Matthew Rhys as Best Actor in a Drama Series, and Noah Emmerich as Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
