    The season 3 premiere of “Basketball Wives” and the Single Ladies TV movie brought VH1 some of its highest ratings since 2009.

    The return of the hit reality series brought 3.5 million viewers to the network when combining statistics for both the 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. airings.

    That’s not a huge surprise given the buzz about the series and the fact that the names “Evelyn Lozada” and “Tami Roman” were trending topics on Twitter during the show and for hours afterward.

    Tami took a second to show her appreciation for those who tuned in. “OMG!! Thank you twit fam 4ur support-#basketballwives premiere had 3.5 million viewers!!! Hootie hooo!!!!!” she wrote before sending out a “congratulations” to her co-stars.

    The season 3 “BBW” premiere was followed by the two-hour TV movie that introduced the world to Val, Keisha and April, the characters on VH1’s new series “Single Ladies.”

    The film, which featured appearances by Common, Lauren London, Kim Porter, Chilli and Eve, attracted 2.8 viewers total, including both the 9 p.m. and midnight airings.

    Although the shows have received some unfavorable reviews from TV critics—The Washington Post described it as “a beach read with no words,” —the one-hour drama seems to have found a receptive audience.

    “The show was great! I will be tuning in from now on,” wrote one Sister 2 Sister fan.

    Another wrote, “I liked ‘Single Ladies’ because it reminds me of me and some of my single girlfriends, and I enjoyed the show from start to finish. The drama continues and hopefully it’ll be back for a second season.”
