The network has yet to renew Breakout Kings for a second season.

The March 6 premiere episode of Breakout Kings set a network series premiere ratings record among adults 25-54 (1.6 million viewers) and adults 18-49 (1.5 million viewers), but fell short of the 3.6 million total viewers that A&E's drama series The Glades drew in its summer 2010 debut.

The Glades, which stars Matt Passmore as a quirky detective fighting crime in the Florida Everglades, launches its sophomore season this Sunday.
