TV One has scored big time with the premiere of its new reality series “R&B Divas.”
The network today announced that the show, which follows Faith Evans, Nicci Gilbert-Daniels, Monifah Carter, Syleena Johnson and Keke Wyatt as they work on a comeback, earned 479,000 viewers during its Monday, 10 p.m. debut – becoming the most watched original premiere in the history of the network.
Nearly 900,000 total viewers tuned in if you factor in the encore airings as well.
“We were confident in the quality of production and that the compelling storytelling deriving from the Divas’ willingness to present their lives so openly and honestly would result in an entertaining series,” said Toni Judkins, TV One EVP of Programming and Production. “We’re pleased that the ratings reflect the viewers’ interest in and support of the show and TV One.”
