Likely To Avoid The Presidential Debates, Westworld Episode 2 Chestnut Comes Early.
All hands on deck, Westworld episode 2, entitled Chestnut was released early by HBO. The early release, which came out Thursday night at midnight was actually a clever way of allowing fans access to the next hour in the drama series thus avoiding the Presidential debate. The debate between Clinton and Trump is scheduled for Sunday nights 9:00 PM ET time slot.
The Westworld premiere, which aired this past Sunday was seen by 3.3 million viewers. That is HBO’s biggest premiere numbers since True Detective premiered nearly 3 years ago. The news of this release first came as an email from HBO’s promotional travel site, Discover Westworld.
Inside Westworld actually announced the debut of the second episode on Social Media largely before any other website took notice. First to know, first to act.
