In my opinion,since this program is returning for a 3rd season, i see no reason why it won't continue to attract a fairly large audience, especially those who have watched it on a regular basis.

People generally like prison shows - especially men - and they are usually the ones controlling the remote

If it has an avid audience then I see no reason why close to the same amount of viewers wouldn't tune in for another season
