Vikings Slays Competition #1 Series of Night

HISTORY’s Emmy Award-nominated original series Vikings returned with a vengeance, slaying the competition and seizing the #1 spot of the night across specialty with 465,000 Canadians watching its November 30th mid-season premiere. Vikings claimed top spot in multiple key demos, including 2+, A25-54 and A18-49. Since its launch in 2013, Vikings has consistently been the #1 scripted series across Canadian specialty (2+, A25-54, A18-34 and A18-49) and following Wednesday’s strong start, the momentum continues.
