The Sorrentinos (TVGN): Ratings Recap

TVGN's 'The Sorrentinos' premiered to 149,000 viewers in July 2014, and rose slightly in week 2 to 194,000. The show aired a total of 10 episodes over the course of a single season and concluded in September 2016. Note: 18-49 data wasn't made available for the first two episodes, and it was only made available to 1-decimal place for the episode that aired Sept. 2, 2014. Additionally, I believe the Aug. 26, 2014 was a rerun, but I've seen differing information about this program's airdates so those numbers are included anyway.
