Tyler Perry’s freshman drama shattered its ratings and viewership records on OWN last night with 2.6 million tuning in for The Haves And The Have Nots finale. The show received a 2.21 rating in women 25-54, also its best result so far. Viewership-wise, that’s up from the 1.77 million who watched the show’s 9 PM premiere on May 28 and up from its debut’s 1.57 rating in women 25-54. That debut was the best launch in OWN’s nearly three-year history. Tuesday’s Haves And The Have Nots was the third most watched telecast in OWN history, bested only by interview with Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina and the Lance Armstrong episodes of Oprah’s Next Chapter which had 3.5 million and 3.2 million viewers, respectively. The network doubled its order of The Haves And The Have Nots to 32 episodes in late June. It then added four more episodes to that order on August 21. The series about the rich Cryer family and their hired help returns to the Oprah Winfrey Network in January next year. Read More »
