It seems VH1 made the right move by opting to place Rita Ora and not Karrueche Tran at the helm of ‘America’s Next Top Model‘s relaunch.
Good news below…
Monday’s night premiere drew in 1.7 million viewers, the highest number the show has seen in the last five years thanks to intense promotional efforts implemented by its leading lady Rita.
The show’s creator Tyra Banks still stands as its executive-producer and supported the revival by appearing on Monday night’s episode alongside Ora and her judging crew.
“Model” wrapped its initial run on the CW last December, drawing 1.2 million viewers for its finale. The series aired for 12 years and 22 seasons on the CW and its predecessor, UPN. The CW announced in October, 2015, that the 22nd season would be its last.
Its impressive numbers have now given TV insiders good reason to believe it will be renewed for a “second” season before its first cycle wraps in 2017.
