The second season of Devious Maids’ saw a big drop in the ratings and fell about 30% when compared to the first season. Have the numbers rebounded in season three? Will this Lifetime series be cancelled or renewed for a fourth year?
Devious Maids revolves around a group of Latina maids who work in the homes of wealthy and powerful families in Beverly Hills. The large cast includes Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sánchez, Judy Reyes, Edy Ganem, Tom Irwin, Rebecca Wisocky, Brianna Brown, Brett Cullen, Grant Show, Susan Lucci, Drew Van Acker, Naya Rivera, Gilles Marini, Nathan Owens, Ivan Hernandez, and John O’Hurley.
Season three kicked off on June 1st of this year and attracted a 0.53 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.465 million viewers. Compared to the second season’s premiere, that was down by more than 25%. The numbers didn’t get much better as the season progressed.
Thus far, this season of Devious Maids has been averaging a 0.46 demo rating with 1.32 million. That’s down by more than 25% year-to-year and obviously not a good sign for the show’s future. (Season one averaged 0.89 in the demo with 2.53 million.)
UNReal was recently renewed for a second season with about half as many viewers while The Lottery and Witches of East End were both cancelled last year.
Will Devious Maids be renewed for a fourth season? I suspect it will because, despite the serious declines in viewership, it’s still their highest-rated scripted series — and they only have two left. The drama also fits well with their brand and has high-profile names (Desperate Housewives’ Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria) attached to the series. While that won’t ensure the show’s future forever, I suspect it will be enough for now.
But, what do you think? Do you like the Devious Maids TV show? Do you think that it should be cancelled or renewed for a fourth season?
I love this show!!!! its amazing, funny and fun. Make season 5 work please. 🙂
Please renew Devious Maids,I really enjoy watching this show.
I love this show!! Think it is the best show On Lifetime!! I don’t get interested in too many tv shows to the point where I don’t want to miss one…… But this one does it for me!!
It is a chick show but th there is more to it, I just enjoy it thoroughly. Keep it going please!!
Please renew Devious Maids, Please, Please
Please please keep the devious maids on what what a great and entertaining and exciting series to be on lifetime
It is awesome Devious Maids is renewed but sadly only 10 episodes. It is expensive to produce and would suggest they cut a maid each week but keep the Powells and Genevieve on each episode to save money and use them ause those three really make the show (steal t). Focus on the core though I do think Eva Longoria will help and promote the show gosh darn it. They probably should have gone after the soap fans more but Susan Lucci’s role is kind of small. Get the show out there even online – even the old seasons.
Maybe if they put it back on Hulu the ratings will go back up! I was not happy when Lifetime didn’t allow Devious maids to show on Hulu the third season wth?! Maybe Lifetime should stop being greedy and allow it back on Hulu!
