The quick decision to repeat the season 1B premiere of Total Divas after last nights edition of Monday Night Raw seems to have, again, been a smart one, as the second airing drew an additional 1.2 million viewers.
This, of course, comes quite close to matching the 1.3 million that the inaugural airing amassed when it returned to the E! Network Sunday night following the season finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Per the coveted 18-49 year old demo, the replay took in a 0.5 which is just below the 0.6 the episode drew Sunday. To put it into perspective, that 0.5 (for a repeat) ranks higher than pretty much everything E! has outside of the Kardashians. Not only that, it’s also on par with how other current USA Network shows such as White Collar and Covert Affairs are performing for original airings. Nice work for a repeat, right?
The next two weeks will, of course, be a bigger test for Total Divas, as it has to not only lose its Kardashian lead-in, but also compete against WWE’s own Survivor Series on November 24th. However, we’ve got faith that the Divas can pull it off!
