Deadline also reports The Breaks premiere rated 204% higher than VH1’s last scripted series to debut on the channel which was Hindsight in January 2015.

However, the “Hard To Handle” episode did slightly lower numbers than the television feature film that originally ran on January 4, 2016.

The show scored 2.3 million total viewers compared to 2.6 million for the movie.

The Breaks stars Mack Wilds, Afton Williams, Antoine Harris, Wood Harris, Method Man, Teyana Taylor, and Tip “T.I.” Harris.

It airs Mondays at 9 pm on VH1 and streams on vh1.com.
