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.
