Ratings: E!’s “Total Divas” Sets Premiere Low, USA’s “Tough Enough” Rises

Two WWE-centric reality shows (that feature Diva Paige) aired on cable television Tuesday. They delivered mixed results in the official ratings report.

The season premiere of E! reality series “Total Divas,” which aired in its new Tuesday at 9PM timeslot, posted a 0.47 adults 18-49 rating with 975,000 total viewers.

While it was not the worst-performing “Total Divas” episode on record, it was the series’ least-watched season premiere.

Earlier in the night, USA aired “Tough Enough.” While not as hot as “Total Divas” in the adults 18-49 demographic, “Tough Enough” reached a considerably larger audience. It also enjoyed week-over-week gains in both columns.

Tuesday’s episode drew a 0.41 rating with 1.221 million viewers. Last week’s episode posted a 0.32 rating with 1.047 million.
