Real Ratings for VH1’s ‘Celebreality’


VH1 said it set network ratings records Sunday night when 10.2 million viewers tuned in to its "Celebreality" programming block.

The network said Hogan Knows Best debuted with a network record 1.9 Nielsen Media Research 18-49 rating, followed by The Surreal Life 5 with a 1.5 and Celebrity Fit Club 2 with a 1.4.

The debut of Hogan Knows Best, starring World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. icon Hulk Hogan and his family, was the No. 1 telecast in the 18-49 demographic for the night and broke VH1 records, making it the highest-rated series premiere in VH1 history and the highest-rated regular-episode telecast.

“The numbers confirm what we've seen for a while: Our audience is really connecting with our brand strategy of celebrating the music and pop-culture figures we all love so much," VH1 senior vice president of programming strategy Ben Zurier said in a prepared statement.
