Ratings: Client List Gets Happy Ending, Falling Skies Returns Lower

Lifetime’s The Client List wrapped its freshman rub run on Sunday night with a total audience of 2.7 million total viewers, down a hair from the series opener (which drew 2.8 mil) but up 8 percent from its Season 1 average.

Among that finale crowd, 1.2 mil landed in the coveted 18-49 demo, and the Jennifer Love Hewitt-fronted drama stands as Sunday’s No. 1 show with women in the 10 o’clock slot.

The Client List was already renewed for Season 2, which will pump out 15 episodes (versus Season 1’s 10).

Over on TNT Sunday night, Falling Skies‘ two-hour Season 2 premiere averaged 4.5 million total viewers with 1.9 landing in the 18-49 demo, down from both the sci-fier’s year-ago debut (which with 5.9 mil last summer marked cable’s best series launch of 2011) and the freshman finale (5.6 mil). Even so, the numbers mark a strong return and helped TNT rank as the No. 1 basic cable network for the night with a 2.3 household rating.
