Season Three of “Survivor’s Remorse” has seen record increases in its audience, averaging 2.9M viewers per episode among all reportable platforms, an increase of more than 20% above Season Two and 60% above Season One.
Episode 306, which aired Sunday, August 21, showed a 20% gain over the previous week, making it the second highest premiere viewing ever for the series.

“I’m incredibly proud of the team at ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ and what we’ve built,” said LeBron James. “The show grew so much this year, attracting new fans and reaching new levels of popularity. I want to thank all the fans who’ve made ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ a success and the team at Starz for all of their support.”
“We are thrilled to renew ‘Survivor’s Remorse’ for a fourth season,” said Carmi Zlotnik, managing director of Starz. “Critics have consistently called it one of the smartest and funniest comedies on television and we are delighted to see audiences embracing the characters and the storyline with that same enthusiasm. Mike O’Malley and his tremendously talented team of writers and actors boldly tackle today’s most pressing issues, from race, class, sex, and politics, to love and loss, but with such a deft touch that nothing ever feels heavy-handed. In the Calloways, O’Malley has created a modern family bound by heart and humor, who remain completely relatable despite dealing with the ‘pro-money and pro-problems’ that come with Cam’s position as one of the top basketball stars in the nation.”
“Survivor’s Remorse” made its third season debut on Sunday, July 24 as part of STARZ’s decision to shift its original programming to Sunday nights, which has long been established as the home of premium television. Since Season Three of “Survivor’s Remorse” premiered on Sunday nights, it has seen its premiere telecast audience grow 159% compared to Season Two and 308% compared to Season One.
