Ratings: “Total Divas” Hits Season High as Paige Debuts

Sunday’s “Total Divas,” which was the first episode since the show’s October 26 fall finale, delivered a series high performance for E!

Boosted by lead-in support from “Kourtney & Khloe Take the Hamptons” (0.9 adults 18-49 rating, 1.84 million viewers) and anticipation over its return to the air, Sunday’s midseason premiere drew a 0.7 adults 18-49 rating with 1.41 million viewers. Not since the June 2014 season two finale (0.8 adults 18-49 rating, 1.55 million viewers) has a “Total Divas” episode delivered a performance of this caliber.

The aforementioned fall finale drew a 0.5 adults 18-49 rating with 1.13 million viewers.

As far as this Sunday’s race goes, “Total Divas” ranked seventh among all cable telecasts in the adults 18-49 demographic.

The episode, which also benefited from the debut of new cast member Paige, fared even better in key younger demos. It commanded a 0.9 rating in the adults 18-34 demographic and a 1.2 among females 12-34.

Its Kardashians lead-in drew a 1.2 and 1.5 in those respective demos.

This coming Sunday, “Total Divas” returns to its regular 9PM ET timeslot and loses the “Kourtney & Khloe” boost.
