By comparison, the previous season finale, which aired in June 2011, posted a 1.0 with 2.860 million total viewers. The previous season premiere, which aired in April 2011, scored a 1.5 rating with 3.326 million viewers.
— USA Network’s Tuesday lineup also included “Chrisley Knows Best” (0.50, 1.398 million) and “Royal Pains” (0.33, 1.329 million).
