Three million U.S. households tuned in for the season finale of Lifetime’s “Devious Maids,” one of the most successful TV drama series of the season.
As Lifetime topped audience ratings Sunday at 10:00 p.m., 19 percent of viewers were of Hispanic origin.
“The performance and growth of ‘Devious Maids’ has been incredible,” Rob Sharenow, executive vice president and general manager of Lifetime, said in a press release.
“Any time you see your ratings double over the course of a season, you know the creatives are making a great show that is hitting a chord with viewers,” he said.
“Devious Maids” is an American dramatic comedy created by Marc Cherry and Eva Longoria - a star of “Desperate Housewives” - and starring Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes.
The series is based on the Mexican series “Ellas Son la Alegria del Hogar” (They’re the Joy of the Household), which portrays the lives of five maids who combine their ambitions and dreams with working for the rich and famous of Beverly Hills.
The series is produced by ABC Studios, which has prepared a second season of 13 episodes that will air next year.
