Since the Western drama debuted on CBS on Sept. 17, nearly 21.6 million viewers have tuned in to at least one episode of YELLOWSTONE on CBS. Over half (52%) are new to the series, having not seen a single episode in the past year on either linear or streaming.

From MTV Entertainment Studios and 101 Studios, YELLOWSTONE chronicles the Dutton family who controls the largest contiguous cattle ranch in the United States. Amid shifting alliances, unsolved murders, open wounds, and hard-earned respect – the ranch is in constant conflict with those it borders – an expanding town, an Indian reservation, and vicious business rivalries.
