According to Nielsen (via The Hollywood Reporter), the Sylvester Stallone-led series has broken House of the Dragon‘s viewership ratings by becoming this year’s highest-rated series debut with 3.7 million viewers.

Tulsa King scored as the number one new series of the year, topping all others, including the Game of Thrones sequel House of the Dragon. With its preview on Paramount Network, and on Paramount+, it shattered records, driving us to our biggest new signup day in history — which is why we instantly greenlit Season 2,” Paramount Media Networks and MTV Entertainment Studios president and CEO, Chris McCarthy said in a statement. “Tulsa King together with Mayor of Kingstown, 1883, and the upcoming 1923, undeniably confirm the success of our strategy to franchise Yellowstone and use it to supercharge streaming growth — none of which would be possible without the creative mastermind of Taylor Sheridan.”

Tulsa King is created and executive produced by Taylor Sheridan. Joining Stallone are Andrea Savage (I’m Sorry), Max Casella (The Tender Bar), Martin Starr (Silicon Valley), Domenick Lombardozzi (The Irishman), Vincent Piazza (Boardwalk Empire), Jay Will (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), A.C. Peterson (Superman & Lois), Garrett Hedlund (The United States vs. Billie Holiday), and Dana Delany (Body of Proof).

“The series follows New York mafia capo Dwight ‘The General’ Manfredi just after he is released from prison after 25 years and unceremoniously exiled by his boss to set up shop in Tulsa, Okla,” reads the synopsis. “Realizing that his mob family may not have his best interests in mind, Dwight slowly builds a crew from a group of unlikely characters, to help him establish a new criminal empire in a place that to him might as well be another planet.”
