Ratings: Mistresses Returns Down After Break-Up With Bachelorette, Dome Steady

Mistresses RatingsWith a Shark Tank rerun opening the night with about 60 percent of what The Bachelorette was doing, ABC’s Mistresses returned from a two-week break to 3.5 million total viewers and a 1.0 rating — down 12 percent and two tenths from its last fresh outing, yet still topping Siberia for the No. 2 spot at 10 o’clock.

    Sad news for Mistresses! I hope it gets renewed soon. It’s the best show of the summer!

    • Alicia says:

      I agree.. Mistresses, graceland and under the dome best shows ive ever seen in summer. Rookie blue is good too!!

  2. SK says:

    I wonder if the hiatus had something to do with Mistresses being down. I enjoy watching Mistresses. Has it been picked up yet?

  3. Dave says:

    Man, ABC always does this to serialized soaps… just when they get good, they pre-empt them for weeks and then expect them to return 3 weeks later to the same #s.

    They did the same thing to Revenge too!

    • Janet says:

      ABC actually enjoys killing their serialized shows with bad scheduling. They managed to run Whodunnit uninterrupted, but not this? It makes no sense.

    Well, after this huge hiatus this ratings for Mistresses don’t surprise me. and Yay for Under the Dome.

  5. Eric7740 says:

    And the way ABC will “reward” Mistresses is by cancelling it!!! The way ABC almost always does to their shows after they bring them back from a lengthy hiatus and still expect them to do well!!

    I don’t think many people new it was on not many tweets about it. I know my mom didn’t know at all.

    I bet a good, fun dose of Bachelor Pad may have helped to keep Mistresses numbers up ;)

  8. Big Nate says:

    Well, I guess so…they take a two break and put it back on at a time when many people are on summer vacation. Great summer show. ABC needs to bring it back…certainly better than all the 10 Sunday night shows they had on last season.

    the show has held it’s own coming in second to Under the Dome in the 10pm time slot so I think that says a lot. renew it and watch it grow into the top show come next season when people get tired of Under the Dome’s predictable plots.
