'American Gigolo' continues to have a substantial amount of viewership despite the critic ratings on Rotten Tomatoes. As it hurtles towards a season one finish, the 35 percent audience rating takes a backseat as all eyes solely rest on the cast that's driving the glam crime thriller on Showtime. With the show reaching its halfway mark, expect the remaining four episodes to be a more pacy affair startinf with Episode 5.

Revamped from the old Richard Gere classic 'American Gigolo', the new series of the same name is a present-day reimagining of the '80s film. It follows Julian Kaye (Jon Bernthal) after his wrongful conviction release from 15 years in prison as he navigates his complicated relationships with his former lover Michelle (Gretchen Mol), his troubled mother, and the people who betrayed him. While Julian struggles to harmonize the escort he was in the past and the man he is today, Detective Sunday (Rosie O'Donnell) seeks the truth about the murder that sent Julian to prison all those years ago, unearthing a much larger conspiracy along the way.

As the pilot season crosses the halfway mark, the show brings the focus back on Kaye, who is now in Sunday's crosshairs as the murder case mystery deepens. This comes as one of the many roadblocks that the former gigolo navigates as he looks to lead a more normal life if there was ever one for him.

Alongside Bernthal and Mol, the series also stars Rosie O'Donnell as Detective Sunday, Lizzie Brocheré as Isabelle, and Leland Orser as Richard Stratton. Viewers will also see Wayne Brady as Lorenzo, and Laura Liguori as Elizabeth Shannon House in recurring roles in the series.
