And audiences chose the Atresmedia-owned network once again: with a 21.6% share and 3,336,000 viewers, the "Iberian thriller" was the most watched show on primetime and the most watched show of the day.
Meanwhile, Telecinco chose to air movie Allied, starring Brad Pitt, and reached a 12% share and an average of 1.50 million viewers.
In addition, the numbers pulled by Slaughterhouse make the show the best fiction premiere of the 2018-19 season, a title previously held by Telecinco’s series Vivir sin permiso (19.2% share and 2.59 million views).
The ranking is completed with Presumed Guilty (Antena 3, 16% and 2.26 million), Tell me How it Happened (TVE, 15.4% and 2.21 million), I Am Alive (TVE, 11.5% and 1.66 million) and El Continental (TVE, 10.4% and 1.52 million).

The neighbors of a region of Castile, absolutely normal people, will see how totally unexpected circumstances lead them to commit acts they never thought themselves capable of, until they reach a point of now return. It’s an Iberian thriller in which suspense and dark humor generate a very particular atmosphere.
