More than 6.1 million viewers tuned in during the mini-series' run. Airing on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT over four weeks, the series rated 76 percent above the network's prime average.

Additionally, "Expedition Unknown: After the Hunt," which premiered at 10 p.m. ET/PT as a four-part series of after-show companion specials, drew in over 3.6 million viewers, generating a 38 percent ratings increase from its year-ago timeslot levels.
