VH1’s Basketball Wives wrapped Season 10A on a high note this week, according to just-released ratings.
Episode 13 scored a strong 0.23 in the P18-49 demo and 591,000 live viewers on Monday night, reports Nielsen, making it the highest-rated episode of Season 10 by far.
The episode, which is acting as a midseason finale, beat the Season 10 premiere back in May (0.17 / 517,000) and topped the previous season high back on June 13 (0.19 / 549,000). Season 10 has averaged a 0.15 in the demo and 469,000 viewers across thirteen episodes.
Season 10 of Basketball Wives is acting as a reboot of sorts, with previous cast members returning to make for one of the biggest casts in the show’s history. The main lineup includes Jackie Christie, Malaysia Pargo, Brandi Maxiell, Brooke Bailey, Brittish Williams, Duffey, Jennifer Williams, and Angel Brinks.
The original version of Basketball Wives was first filmed in Miami, Florida, with Basketball Wives LA premiering the year after with a Los-Angeles based cast. The shows originally ran for 5 seasons before being put on hiatus by VH1. The network then revived Basketball Wives for Season 6 in 2017 and moved the series to Los Angeles, effectively combining the two shows.
With Monday’s episode, the series is now taking a break for the rest of the summer, with Season 10B of Basketball Wives set to premiere on VH1 this fall.
