The Americans' audience delivery catapulted an incredible +93% among Adults 18-49, and posted a gain of +83% in Total Viewers - 15 points ahead of FX's second most time-shifted drama, Justified (+68% in Season 4).

The Americans received four Critics' Choice Television Award nominations - the most of any first year drama series. In addition to the nomination for Best Drama Series, The Americans scored noms for Keri Russell as Best Actress in a Drama Series, Matthew Rhys as Best Actor in a Drama Series, and Noah Emmerich as Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.
