Donald Glover’s Show “Atlanta” Breaks FX Viewing Record

Donald Glover’s new show “Atlanta” on FX is already a huge television hit.

Glover, aka Childish Gambino, is the executive producer behind the show. Up until the time of this publication the show was trending on Twitter with viewership increasing rapidly and rave reviews by viewers. According to Complex, the new sitcom has the best premiere in three years in the 18-49 bracket with some 3 million people tuning in the series premiere last week and even more for episode three on Tuesday night.

So far we’ve been seeing a Metacritic score of 90 which is superb for a new TV series. This makes “Atlanta” the most critically acclaim series so far this year. After working with 30 Rock and Community, this marks the first major television project for Danny Glover.

With this much commercial success in TV, we might have to wait a while before we see Childish Gambino getting back to making music.
