Report: VH1’s ‘Divas’ Holiday Special Hits Ratings High Note

Published: Wednesday 7th Dec 2016 by Rashad

It appears the mixture of Mariah Carey, Chaka Khan, Vanessa Williams, and Patti Labelle proved potent for VH1 as newly surfaced reports indicate the holiday rendition of their once-shelved ‘Divas’ series scored major ratings.

Also featuring the likes of Teyana Taylor, JoJo, and more, the showing – which was taped at New Yorks’ King’s Theater and aired December 5th – gave the network its highest ratings for the franchise in over a decade.

See the figures inside:

VH1 dominated small screens on Monday night (Dec. 5) with the network’sVH1 Divas Holiday: Unsilent Night special. Festive performances from Mariah Carey, Vanessa Williams, Patti LaBelleand Chaka Khan, among others, scored two million viewers for the hour-long telecast.

The special’s executive producer, VH1 and Logo’s executive vice president and deputy general manager Amy Doyle, recently told Billboard that there are plans to bring the VH1 Divas show next year. Said Doyle: “We set out to start a new holiday tradition, and based on the early feedback, it seems like we’ve accomplished that!”

    Replace the other nobodys/non divas with TAMAR, Kelly Rowland, Brandy and Fantasia. Keep Jojo though

    there is NOTHING holiday-esque or Christmas like about Fantasia’s voice. she does nothing but shout and sweat and overdramatize every classic or gospel song she delivers. Fantasia does not understand how to simply perform a song without taking it to heights that are not required and quite unnecessary for that particular record. I am so glad the producers did not add her to the roster. she would not have fit.
