The Marc Cherry series climbed 15 percent in key demo over show’s premiere
“Devious Maids” cleaned up in the ratings with its Season 2 premiere on Sunday.
The Lifetime series from “Desperate Housewives” creator Marc Cherry enjoyed a decent ratings bump in the 18-49 demographic, climbing 15 percent over the series premiere with 951,000 viewers in the demo.
In total viewers, the “Maids” premiere drew even with the series premiere, drawing 2 million viewers.
The “Devious Maids” season kickoff also showed improvement in other demos, inching up 6 percent with the 25-54 crowd with 916,000 demo viewers, 12 percent among women 18-49 with 706,000 and three percent in women 25-54, with 684,000 viewers in the demo.
The season premiere didn’t fare as well compared to the Season 1 finale, which drew 3 million total viewers and 1.4 million viewers 18-49. However, the series, which stars Ana Ortiz, Roselyn Sanchez and others, grew significantly from its premiere last season. It is likely to experience similar growth with its current season.
