Scoundrels revolves around the West family, a clan that’s had many run-ins with the law. Dad (David James Elliott) has been sent to prison and his wife (Virginia Madsen) is determined that she and their kids not follow him. The TV show’s cast also includes Leven Rambin, Vanessa Marano, Carlos Bernard, and Patrick Flueger (in a dual role).
Based on New Zealand’s Outrageous Fortune series, Scoundrels debuted to a 1.3 rating in the coveted 18-49 demographic and 5.23 million viewers. While that’s certainly not very impressive, ABC was able to boast that it was a double digit increase over the previous year’s ratings.
