“Carter” followed the tale of a teenage girl named Carter (Kathryn Prescott) who discovers that the woman who has been raising her isn’t actually her mother at all. Watros played her birth mother, Elizabeth Wilson.

The first season of the show averaged a 0.5 Live + Same Day rating in Adults 18-49 and 1.14 million viewers. Season two began way down at just a 0.29 in Adults 18-49 and a mere 556,000 viewers. The second half of season two fell even further with barely half the already meager audience, reports TV By The Numbers.

Also featured in the series was former “Port Charles” actor Eddie Matos.
