It pays noting, however, that this rating is close to season 15’s premiere’s rating. The premiere episode of season 16 score a 0.91. This is a 1% increase from season 15. With the 18-49 and 18-34 demographic, Drag Race was also hailed the top cable entertainment telecast of the day on Friday.

Season 16 marks the second for Drag Race at MTV after it moved from VH1 last season. It’s a fair decision, as MTV generally performs well in terms of viewership and demo ratings than VH1.
