Fans of the New York edition of VH1’s hit reality franchise, ‘Love & Hip Hop,’ not only got to kick off 2018 by finding out the latest shenanigans of Remy Ma, Yandy Smith-Harris, newcomer Lil’ Mo, and more on Monday night (January 1), but were also introduced to the newest member of the franchise’s family – ‘Love & Hip Hop: Miami’ (starring Trina, Trick Daddy, and more).
As we reported here, anticipation for the cast of ‘The Magic City’s addition to the franchise was high and, as reports now reveal, are certainly reflected in the viewership numbers of its premiere. With figures in line with the respective inaugural episodes of its ‘LHH’ predecessors, tuck in below to see just how many Miami’s crew reeled in:
