March 14, 2006 07:41 PM by Joe Blackmon

America can’t get enough of Flavor Flav! The "Flavor of Love" series finale was the #1 rated telecast in the 18-49 demo out of all basic cable television networks for the week of March 6-12. The episode was also the #2 most watched telecast out of all cable programs for the week only behind the season premiere of HBO’s "The Sopranos."

For year-to-date among ad supported cable television, the "Flavor of Love" finale is the highest rated non-sports telecast among viewers 18-49.

The 90-minute "Flavor of Love" finale became the #1 show in VH1′s history, scoring a 3.5 rating in the key 18-49 demo and averaging 5,884,000 total (P2+) viewers and 3,672,000 P18-49 viewers. In terms of overall viewers across the entire television landscape, "Flavor of Love" ranked behind only ABC’s "Grey’s Anatomy" and NBC’s "Crossing Jordan" in the Sunday night 10:00 PM time period.

Across its ten premieres, "Flavor of Love" averaged an unprecedented 1.6 rating in the 18-49 demo, making it the highest rated VH1 series premiere average ever. Three of the "Flavor of Love" premieres reside in VH1′s Top Ten-rated commercial telecasts of all time, taking the #1, #3, and #6 spots.

In "Flavor of Love," 20 single women from all walks of life, selected for their expressed love for Flav, moved into a "phat crib" in Los Angeles and vied for his affection. With help and advice from Big Rick, Flav’s gigantic body-guard and chauffeur, Flavor Flav dated all of the women, weeded out the ones who are only after his fame and fortune … and in the end chose his one true love. "Flavor of Love" is a production of Mindless Entertainment and 51 Pictures. Executive producers are Mark Cronin, Cris Abrego and Ben Samek. Executive producers for VH1 are Jeff Olde and Jill Holmes.

    Flavor of Love was addicting! At first I was like, “Oh please! I’m not watching that garbage”, but then a few weeks ago, VH-1 had a marathon and I found myself waiting for the rest of the episodes. I even had the nerve to be upset with myself for falling asleep trying to watch the finale.

    Can’t wait for the Reunion!

    Flava of love is like a night time soaps. This is the the best show ever. Nobody can top this show off. The last season had a lot of real females. I mean real b-tches. Newyork hate her alot the rest were all good. I know one thing NY didn’t really want the drama from Boots for real. She was scared for sure.
