Leading out of the least-watched “Devious Maids” on record, Monday’s “UnREAL” premiere delivered soft marks in adults 18-49 and total viewership.

The launch, which received strong feedback from critics, posted a 0.29 adults 18-49 rating with 815,000 viewers.

The aforementioned “Devious Maids” premiere, which aired in its new Monday at 9PM timeslot, drew a 0.53 adults 18-49 rating with 1.465 million viewers. Down from the season two opener, which posted a 0.7 rating with 1.96 million viewers on April 20, 2014, this season’s launch set a series low in total viewership.
