Lady Gaga Leads ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ To Its Highest Ratings EVER

Published: Tuesday 28th Mar 2017 by Rashad

‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ saw its season 9 premiere, which aired Saturday night [March 24], sashay to its highest ratings yet thanks to a “surprise” appearance from pop superstar Lady Gaga.

Making its VH1 debut after 8 seasons on LOGO, the drag reality competition series invited the Grammy-winning diva to act as a guest judge and mentor for the kickoff of its 9th season.  And, from the looks of things, Little Monsters and the show’s fans couldn’t wait to see her in action.

More inside:


RuPaul’s Drag Race is settling in well at its new home on VH1. The series drew nearly 1 million viewers for Friday’s Season 9 premiere, breaking ratings records and making it the show’s most-watched episode ever.

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.
