ABC is going back to the world of infidelity.
Starring Alyssa Milano, the series ranked as the summer’s No. 2 scripted drama among adults 18-49, behind CBS’ ratings monster Under the Dome.
After initially airing the drama on Mondays at 8 p.m. — in the same time slot as Dome — ABC showed a sign of faith in the summer entry when it moved the series to 9 p.m., where it wouldn’t have to face off with the adaptation of Stephen King‘s best-seller.
Mistresses, from executive producer K.J. Steinberg, is a remake of the British series of the same name, which aired only six episodes. The ABC Studios entry was one of a handful of low-cost originals that the broadcast networks ran this summer in a bid to keep the lights on during the typically low-rated season.
Mistresses joins Under the Dome and NBC’s unscripted game show Hollywood Game Night as summer fare renewed for second seasons.
