SWAT is averaging 10.36 million viewers, according to the network, and a 1.9 in viewers 25-54. 2 premiere at 10/9c was the best performance in the time period with entertainment programming since January of 2016. Stephanie Sigman, Alex Russell, Lina Esco, Kenny Johnson, Peter Onorati, Jay Harrington and David Lim co-star.
