The finale, which aired on Jan. 13, grew to 3.3 million viewers in delayed viewing with 1.3 million of those falling in the key adults 18-49 demographic. That is up 10% in total viewers and 15% in the key demo compared to the L+3 numbers for the previous week’s episode.

The show finished its freshman run as a top 10 cable scripted series in adults 18-49 for all of 2018. Dirty John is also Bravo’s highest-rated freshman series in 4 and a half years among total viewers.

Bravo gave Dirty John a two-season order in January. The scripted anthology series is based on the series of articles published by the Los Angeles Times’ last fall about a charismatic con man, John Meehan, and the consequences of an ill-fated romance. Connie Britton stars as Debra Newell, the single mother who fell in love with Meehan, who is played by Eric Bana.

Dirty John was also the source of a podcast hosted by LA Times writer Christopher Goffard. Separately, Oxygen Media has ordered a docuseries on the Meehan case. The second season of Bravo’s anthology will focus on a different case.
