Is Anybody Watching Years of Living Dangerously?

by Greg Pollowitz

Years of Living Dangerously, Showtime’s celebrity-filled, James Cameron–produced, documentary series is certainly garnering plenty of media praise: See here, here, here, and here for just a few examples.

But is anybody watching it? Years didn’t crack the Top 100 cable shows on Sunday April 13. For comparison purposes, the Showtime drama Shameless was No. 12 on Sunday April 6

As the goal of the series is to communicate the dangers of global warming to viewers, I’m not sure things are working out as planned.
