“Mistresses,” though never a ratings barn-burner, did snag 3.91 million viewers to its Sept. 9 finale and a 3 rating among the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic. It ranked No. 2 for summer scripted series second only to CBS’s “Under the Dome.”

It stars Alyssa Milano, Rochelle Aytes, Jes Macallan and Yunjin Kim.
