Tyler Perry continues to drive big ratings for OWN.
The actor/director/producer’s drama series The Haves and The Have Nots set an OWN series ratings record Tuesday, averaging 3.7 million viewers for its fifth season finale.
The series was up 6% over the former record set by the March 2015 finale of season four of the series, according to OWN. The show, which follows the exploits of a rich, white family and the black family of their maid, also posted an 18% increase among women 25-54 compared the March finale, according to network officials.
OWN also drew big numbers for the season three premiere of Tyler series If Loving You Is Wrong, which drew 2.9 million viewers.
Both shows were the most watched cable shows in primetime last night, according to Nielsen.
