As you can see below, the season started out strong at the premiere and then fell back a million viewers from 2.1 million to 1.1 million, but has rebounded strongly since then and is doing much better than season one's average of ~900,000 viewers per episode.\
Update: 10/27 with season finale detail. Additional detail about the season finale and season two ratings is available here.
