The ratings are in, and Da Vinci’s Demons is the winner! The series premiered on Starz! last Friday, as part of their free preview weekend, and set ratings records with 2.14 million tuning in, the most of any Starz! premiere to date.
I’ve seen the next two episodes, and while Sid doesn’t appear in either (except in a “memory”), the political intrigue and da Vinci’s irrepressible personality have me hooked on the series.
