DESCRIPTION: (from USA's press release, October 2014) USA Network today announced a 10-episode second season order for the sexy one-hour hit original drama series SATISFACTION, a postmodern love story centered around a married couple, Neil Truman (Matt Passmore, "The Glades") and his wife, Grace (Stephanie Szostak, "The Devil Wears Prada") and the unconventional choices they make to keep their relationship intact. SATISFACTION drew a loyal and consistent audience since its July 17 debut, averaging 2.21MM total viewers P2+ L7 season-to-date, with the penultimate episode reaching a series high 2.43MM total viewers P2+, 1.09MM P18-49 and 1.13MM P25-54 (L7 data for the finale is not yet available). On average, the series registered particularly high double-digit growth in L7 lifts of +74% P18-49, +75% P25-54, +60% P18-34 and +58% in P2+ season-to-date. In SATISFACTION, investment advisor Neil Truman (Passmore) and his wife Grace (Szostak) are sifting through their stagnant relationship when Neil discovers that Grace has been seeing a male escort. After an unusual chain of events, he gains a new perspective on his life and what motivates women, while Grace contemplates whether her needs are being met and if her marriage is worth saving. The series concluded its 10-episode freshman season on September 18, with a shocking cliffhanger leaving Neil and Grace dealing with a major fallout from their secrets.
