Not even a solid lead-in following the Academy Awards could help bring in solid ratings. 

It averaged a mere 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demo in live+same day figures, but it did command strong growth in delayed viewing. 

Foley and Cohan are also marketable stars, which explains why the series was a draw internationally.

However, the big issue that plagued the series was that it was now owned by ABC, meaning the diminished ratings, coupled with the fact that network would not make money from potential syndication, made a sophomore run a big gamble.
