TLC's 'Sister Wives' finale rises

The first season finale of TLC's Sister Wives rose up in the ratings Sunday.

About 2.7 million viewers showed up, with a 1.2 in the adult demo. That's a nice rise from the show's 2.2 million average audience. 

The network hasn't yet picked up Sister Wives for a second season, but with these numbers you can expect it's coming. The production team was pretty confident about the show before it premiered, and continued to film the family beyond its original episode order just in case the show was picked up for another round. 

Also Sunday: Boardwalk Empire rose up to 2.9 million viewers (0.8) from last week's low. Showtime's Dexter (1.9 million, 0.8) slipped a tad. AMC's Mad Men (2.4 million, 0.8) was on par. And E!'s Keeping Up With the Kardashians (2.9 million, 1.6) held sway over all (and dipped slightly).
