Initially, the show was scheduled to premiere on September 20, but was postponed from September 20 to October 18 in light of Wendy's health issues.

On the week it premiered, it had a slight increase in ratings with a 0.8 posting - a difference from the previous week's ratings of 0.5, according to The Wrap.

However, some of the improvement was likely due to the fact that the show was airing reruns at the time.
