"Even before we shattered records with the premiere on June 3, we saw the battalions of critical acclaim and knew we had a hit," said Daniels. "Everyone up and down the chain of command deserves a medal for making the show such a success, from our amazing partners at ABC Studios and the production teams both in LA and on the ground in South Carolina to my talented colleagues here at Lifetime and, of course, those nearly four million viewers who tune in every week.
