In its second week of live broadcast "The Penthouse 2" scored ratings of 22.3% on February 26th and ratings of 24% on February 27th. "Penthouse 2" now leads all other programs in its timeslot, including non-dramas. "The Penthouse 2" also has the distinction of marking a 10.1% rating just in the 20-49 year old demographic. The latter assessment was made by advertisers.
The various twists and turns in the plot involved multiple promises of revenge among the lead characters as well as a plastic surgery plot point. "The Penthouse 2" has quickly developed a reputation of outrageousness commensurate with that of the first season of "The Penthouse" to the apparent approval of fans. Elsewhere on Friday night "Beyond Evil" suffered a small drop to 4.3%, while on Saturday "Vincenzo" had 8.1% and "Times" had 1.6%.
