About 299,000 watched the initial telecast of the star-studded Roger Ailes miniseries, starring Russell Crowe and Naomi Watts. That's well below City on a Hill's 532,000 viewership two weeks earlier. It was also behind Showtime's last limited series, Escape at Dannemora, which drew 397,000 for its premiere. Replays and streaming bumped the total number to 651,000. Showtime points out that most of its series rise significantly in later viewing.
