This represents A respective 10% and 86% increase in comparison to Hawkeye’s viewership. However, there was good news for Clint Barton and Kate Bishop, as Boba Fett was watched by 188,000 households in the UK.
This represents a 6% decrease in the amount of viewership that Hawkeye received. While these numbers are intriguing to look at, I can’t imagine the folks at Marvel will be losing too much sleep over them.
