It was a pretty good start for the show — not a big hit and not a bomb out of the gate.


Cable ratings are typically released within a day or so of the show’s airing, except for in the case of weekends and holidays. They are sometimes harder to come by so there may be occasional delays or gaps.

    Please bring it back. It’s a really great show that I look forward to each week. It seems to be well written, and I love the chemistry among the characters.

    RENEW! Good storytelling, great actor connection especially among the principals. Find a more outside the box way to promote this series!!! Better than most Network fare these days.

    Bring it back. Edgar, King, Maxwell, and Benny are great characters. It will be interesting to see which direction the characters go. Gotta love that Edgar!

    This is one of very few TV shows that I really, really liked, this season.
    Will be unhappy with TNT if they cancel it!

    My wife and I like the show and the chemistry between “King” and Maxwell. We ESPECIALLY like Edgar’s character who used very well without stereotyping. Keep it on!

      Very much agree. Some rocky moments but overall intriguing stories that draw you in, good characterizations, and good looking leads to boot! So much better than most shows on the major networks. Please return soon.
