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

  • 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!

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

  • 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 ;)

  • 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.
