AllHipHop Staff

Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and Antonia “Toya” Carter have reached a milestone previously unattained by any reality show on the BET network.

According to Nielsen Media Research, Tiny & Toya, the show chronicling the two women’s lives, finished it’s eight-episode debut season with an average of 1.8 million viewers, more than any other original series in BET history.

The show debuted on June 28 with three million viewers.

Audiences continued to follow Toya’s attempt to evolve beyond her public persona as Lil’ Wayne’s ex-wife and Tiny’s pursuit of her entrepreneurial endeavors while coping with boyfriend T.I.’s incarceration.

One episode even brought the cameras along as Tiny drove T.I to prison through a mob of paparazzi, documenting the former Xscape singer-songwriter’s personal turmoil.

Despite pulling significantly less viewers than the first episode, the Tiny & Toya season finale on Tuesday (August 25) attracted over 1.9 million total views.

Those viewers all seemed to have remained glued to the TV for the premier of Frankie & Neffe, thus giving the spin-off series about singer Keyshia Cole’s mother and sister the #2 series debut in BET history.
