The series debuted to a mere 3.58 million viewers and 1.1 demo, before plummeting to 2.39 million viewers and 0.6 demo the following week. Despite the huge drop, ABC stuck with the series. The most recent episode, which followed a repeat of Trophy Wife, nabbed a series low 2.06 million viewers.
Beginning this Tuesday, ABC will air repeats of breakout drama Resurrection for two weeks. After the two weeks of Resurrection encores, reliable Celebrity Wife Swap will join the schedule with new episodes. The reality series was given a thirteen episode third season renewal last summer.
While Celebrity Wife Swap won’t do huge numbers, it’ll be a big improvement over the last three timeslot occupants. All three were freshmen drama cancelled after a handful of episodes (Lucky 7, Killer Women, and now Mind Games).
