According to BroadwayWorld.com, last night's season return of "Total Divas" took in 1.3 million viewers in its initial airing.
It should be noted that the lead-in to the show was the season finale of "Keeping Up with The Kardashians," which means "Total Divas" will no longer have that strong lead-in going forward.
E! has issued the following press release regarding the rating:
