Auds savor ‘Flavor’

Skein's 2nd season gets off to fast start

VH1 relationship show “Flavor of Love 2” captured the biggest season premiere audience ever for the cable network, while ABC Family drew so-so results for its rookie drama “Three Moons Over Milford.”

Sunday’s season-two “Flavor” bow, which continued rapper Flavor Flav’s search for a soulmate, drew 3.3 million viewers at 10 p.m.

Ninety-minute episode of “Flavor” bested everything else on cable for the night in total viewers, including a new episode of HBO’s “Entourage” (2.4 million overall).

Among adults 18-49, skein tied “Entourage’s” 1.5 national rating/4 share rating.

“Flavor” has become a true breakout show for VH1, which has made Sunday nights a destination for celebrity-centered reality shows like “Hogan Knows Best” and “The Surreal Life.”

First-season finale of “Flavor” drew a massive 6 million viewers to the channel in March, making it the top-rated telecast in VH1 history.

Skein’s 9 p.m. lead-in, “Celebrity Fit Club 4,” drew 1.8 million viewers overall.

ABC Family’s “Three Moons” got off to a slower start. The 8 p.m. premiere attracted 1.6 million viewers and posted a 0.3/4 in its target 18-34 demo. Tally pales in comparison with the premiere of “Kyle XY,” which drew 2.6 million in its June bow.

Elsewhere on Sunday, Nickelodeon delivered 3.2 million total viewers (935,000 kids 2-5) to “Meet Blue’s Baby Brother,” a 10th-anniversary special tied to the preschool skein.

And on Monday, A&E’s “Gene Simmons Family Jewels” delivered 1.9 million viewers at 10 p.m. Premiere episode ranks as the most-watched series bow since the August 2004 debut of “Dog the Bounty Hunter.”
