The NM Production premiered in June of this year, during ABC’s summer season. The full 8 episode run opened with a solid 5.17M viewers but that steadily declined to just over 2M for its finale this August.
“The series premiere of Scoundrels and The Gates gave ABC some bragging points for an otherwise ho-hum night of TV on Sunday: The Gates, which averaged 4.64 million viewers at 10 p.m., represented ABC’s strongest summer scripted series debut in five years. It won its time slot at 10 p.m. in the adult demographic and came in second in viewers behind CBS’ repeat of Cold Case.
Scoundrels averaged 5.17 million viewers at 9 p.m. and won its second half-hour in viewers. The two dramas also gave ABC a boost over last year in viewers and adults 18-49.” – EW
