The Moment is an American reality television series on USA that debuted April 11, 2013.[1][2][3] Casting for a potential second season took place prior the series debut.[4] The series debuted with 1.129 million viewers,[5] with the second episode dropping to 963,000 viewers[6] and its third airing capturing only 950,000 viewers[7] — which led to USA shifting the series to Fridays at 11 pm.[8]
