When you first heard about BET’s new original reality series, “Tiny & Toya” we bet you didn’t think, “Hey, this show is going to be the #1 show in history!” Well, according to stats recently released by Nielson Media Research, it is!
The season finale of the popular BET series Tuesday night (Aug 25) saw an impressive 1.9 milion total viewers, while the season premiere of “Frankie & Neffe” also saw the same numbers. And with an average of 1.8 million viewers per night, “Tiny & Toya” is currently the #1 original series in the history of BET Networks! The premiere of Frankie & Neffe stands as the #2 series debut in BET history.
“Tiny & Toya” chronicled the everyday lives of two ordinary women, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle (T.I.’s fiancee) and Antonia “Toya” Carter (Lil Wayne’s ex-wife), brought together in friendship by their shared experiences surviving the pitfalls of fame alongside superstar significant others. While the brand new series “Frankie & Neffe” follows the R&B Keyshia Cole’s mother (Frankie) and sister (Neffe) as they strive to gain financial independence and take charge of their own lives.
With impressive numbers like that, we wouldn’t be surprised if BET renewed both shows for a second season!
