Lifetime Drama ‘UnReal’ Premieres Quietly Monday

“The UnReal,” Lifetime’s well-reviewed scripted behind-the-scenes look at a television dating show, opened to soft ratings Monday.

According to same-night Nielsen estimates, 10 p.m. drama “UnReal” averaged a 0.29 rating in adults 18-49 and 815,000 viewers overall in the 10 o’clock hour. By comparison, lead-in “Devious Maids” did a 0.53 rating and 1.46 million viewers overall.

“Unreal,” which generated mostly favorable reviews, appeared scheduled to take advantage of spillover audience from ABC’s “The Bachelorette,” which airs from 8 to 10 p.m. and delivered more good ratings results last night (1.9 rating in 18-49, 6.52 million viewers overall).

Over the weekend, Lifetime’s original two-part movie “The Secret Life of Marilyn Monroe” delivered ho-hum ratings. It bowed with a 0.50 rating in 18-49 and 2.31 million total viewers on Saturday and then averaged a 0.51 and 2.05 million on Sunday.
