Description: Preacher is the story of Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper), a conflicted preacher in a small Texas town who is inhabited by a mysterious entity that allows him to develop a highly unconventional power. Jesse embarks on a journey to, literally, find God, joined by his ex-girlfriend Tulip (Ruth Negga) and an Irish vampire named Cassidy (Joseph Gilgun). AMC.com Based on the DC/Vertigo comic created by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon

Status End Status: The numbers were decent, if not spectacular, for a cable entry and according to Variety the show is the Number 2 new series on cable this year among adults 18-49 (more at this link) through Summer. AMC saw fit to give this show a second season and it has developed some decent buzz, so maybe it will grow its audience when it returns next year.
