“I Am Caitlyn” premiere draws 2.7 million viewers

The heavily-hyped premiere of I Am Cait didn’t set any records but it gave cable channel E! Entertainment its third-highest audience of the year.

The reality series chronicling the new life of Caitlyn Jenner premiered on Sunday to an audience of 2.7 million viewers. Only the channel’s Academy Awards red carpet special and the special About Bruce have had higher ratings.

I Am Cait featured appearances by stepdaughter Kim Kardashian and her husband Kanye West and Jenner’s younger daughter Kylie.

But the emotional highlight was a group therapy session with Jenner’s 88-year-old mother, Esther, and two sisters.

I’m a huge fan of Esther Jenner and hope we will see her in future episodes.

The series is set to run for eight episodes this summer and is a key part of the 1976 Olympic champion’s carefully orchestrated re-introduction to the world.

As Bruce, Jenner sat down for a two-hour interview with Diane Sawyer of ABC News which drew 17 million viewers to the broadcast network. ABC also aired the ESPY Awards (8 million viewers) where Jenner was honored and made a memorable and widely-praised speech.

    Unfortunately I’m unable to view it since I don’t have cable. If you ever happen to find clips from “I Am Cait”, they’d be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Greg.
