In adults 18-49, “Devious Maids” drew a 0.65 rating (or about 826,000), a little below the 0.74 that “The Client List” did in the 10 p.m. hour a week ago for its season finale. Roughly one third of the “Devious Maids” audience (662,000) fell in the net’s target women 25-54 demo.
“Devious Maids” stars Ana Ortiz, Dania Ramirez, Roselyn Sanchez, Edy Ganem and Judy Reyes as five maids with ambitions and dreams of their own while working for the rich and famous in Beverly Hills.
It was inspired by the telenovela “Ellas son la Alegria del Hogar” and is produced by ABC Studios. The show ended up at Lifetime after ABC, the home to Cherry’s megahit “Desperate Housewives,” aired for eight seasons.
Also for Lifetime over the weekend, Saturday’s original movie “Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret” averaged 3.1 million viewers and 1.2 million adults 18-49 — the second best numbers for a cable movie this year, behind the net’s “Prosecuting Casey Anthony.”
