Patti Stanger’s new “Million Dollar Matchmaker” series was not an immediate love connection with viewers in its WE tv premiere, according to Nielsen ratings.
But just 373,000 viewers tuned in for the premiere of her new show, reports Nielsen.
(In its last season on Bravo, the premiere of “The Millionaire Matchmaker” drew 1.5 million.)
But Stanger got more love from “Live +3” ratings numbers, which include three days of DVR playback.
A rep said that number hit an average of 507,000 viewers, and the “audience grew 36 percent in three days.”
The rep added in a statement: “This is the first episode of the first season of a new show we think is terrific and are thrilled to have on WE tv.”
Stanger’s also brought some of her old show’s on-screen experts to the new series, which shows her giving rich clients “love lessons.”
