Comments: This show debuted with tepid numbers and then went down from there. It wrapped up most of its story arcs at the end of its ten episode run, though, staying mostly truly to its “limited run” claim. But we all know that these type of shows have additional storylines built in so that more seasons are possible. That seems to be unlikely at this point based on its numbers unless it has significant international financing and syndication deals backing it. And USA gets to cancel the show without having to admit to cancelling because they will claim it was always planned for a limited run.
