Niecy Nash & Karrueche Tran’s ‘Claws’ Premieres To Moderate Ratings

Published: Wednesday 14th Jun 2017 by Rashad

TNT’s newest dramedy centers around Niecy Nash (“Desna Simms”) as the leader of a fiesty and (at times) catty group of Floridian manicurists who are using their nail salon to assist as a money laundering front for a neighboring clinic.

The series, which also stars Emmy winner Karrueche Tran, won rave reviews from critics in pre-screens. Yet, when it made its debut on June 11th, viewership figures didn’t exactly match that fanfare.


‘Claws’ Series Premiere Ratings = 1.18 million

The numbers, though far from blockbuster, are fair given a number of circumstances:

  • It’s in line with a number of other TNT original programming premiere figures from the past year
  • It had to contend with major rating draws like ‘Celebrity Family Feud’ and ‘NHL Playoffs’
  • The show’s already given viewers a “sneak preview” during a previously aired NBA game

With all things considered, the show is off to a solid start.  Next week’s ratings will be a good determinant of how well it was or wasn’t able to sustain viewers.

    This show is everything! Instead of always talking about ratings and numbers (when you so-called “bloggers” of TGJ probably barely passed Algebra one) maybe you should do more features in regards to the amazingly casting, quality and storyline.

    Why are you calling Karruche and Emmy Winner like she won for acting? She’s a DAYTIME(less competition and easier to win) Emmy Winner and it was for being one of many producers on a web soap.
