The premiere and three more episodes of Lifetime’s UnReal are now all online. That’s almost half of the 10-episode series that premiered last Monday and continues tonight at 10 p.m. ET.

Lifetime’s move to make more of the series available online–which happened quietly Saturday morning, Variety says–is likely because only 815,000 people watched last Monday night’s debut, far fewer than the 6.5 million who watched the show it brutally satirizes, The Bachelorette.

As I wrote in my review, it’s not so much a satire of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette as it is a documentary in scripted form. If you want to know how your fantasy reality is made, how people are ground up for your entertainment, UnReal is a highly entertaining way to learn.

Full episodes are on Lifetime’s site.
