'Mistresses' renewed by ABC

Posted on

Ratings were pretty soft. But ABC is bringing back summer soap Mistresses anyway.

The network confirms its picking up another run of the Alyssa Milano drama. The first batch averaged 5 million viewers and a 2.0 adults 18-49 rating including seven days of DVR, ranking 18th in the ratings for the summer, behind a slew of reality shows and scripted repeats.

ABC originally ran Mistresses against CBS’ high-powered Under the Dome, the scooted the show out of the way. Dome and NBC’s Hollywood Game Night are two other freshman summer survivors.
