USA’s “Covert Affairs” delivered 2010’s top 18-49 audience for a series premiere on ad-supported cable Tuesday, but overall it was no match for the emotional farewell to Capt. Phil Harris on Discovery’s “Deadliest Catch.”
The final regular appearance on “Deadliest Catch” of Harris, who died in February days after suffering a stroke, drew 8.5 million viewers at 9 p.m., the biggest audience on cable Tuesday and the largest for Discovery since 2000 (third all-time behind “Raising the Mammoth” and “Walking With Dinosaurs”). “Deadliest Catch” has ranked first in the 25-54 demo for 14 consecutive weeks among non-sports programs on cable.
