Season End Status: The linear viewing numbers for this show remained low throughout its first season, but Cinemax reported that the its digital viewing has been pretty good.  How much “Hollywood accounting” is involved is uncertain, but this show was renewed for a second season before it debuted anyway. Whether the network will want it to build its audience in its second season remains to be seen, but with The Walking Dead‘s Robert Kirkman attached to the show, that should help keep it afloat for a while.
