Season 9 Premiere Of "RuPaul's Drag Race" Garners Nearly 1 Million Viewers

It looks like the move to VH1 for RuPaul's Drag Race paid off handsomely (or is it 'beautifully'?).

The premiere of season 9 garnered almost 1 million viewers making it the show’s most-watched episode ever.

Via Deadline:

The telecast tripled its 8 PM time slot and more than doubled its viewership from last season’s debut on Logo.

The Emmy-winning series moved to VH1 as part of the recent restructuring under the networks’ owner Viacom.

The Season 9 premiere also performed well on social, scoring its highest Twitter volume ever, according to VH1.

We'll have to see if the premiere's guest judge - Lady Gaga! - was a huge impact on the numbers.

The second episode airs this Friday at 8PM with guests Lisa Kudrow and the B-52.
