A critical darling, the dark comedy about a group of privileged, self-absorbed twenty-somethings covering up a murder, was never well suited for a linear network like TBS.
Sensing that, TBS brass gave the series a multi-platform launch, which included a binge release of the entire first season over Thanksgiving week, which drew more than 1.1M viewers per episode across all platforms over five days, showing strong appeal to millennials, with 18% of its audience in the adults 18-34 demo.
