Newyork_tango_photo“New York” didn’t leave anything to “Chance” and found out Tango has love for her.  Monday night’s season finale of VH1′s “I Love New York” drew 4.8
million total viewers, making it the most watched episode of the
season. The series ended up as the second highest-rated season of any
VH1 series ever.

The finale resonated with viewers across mobile and broadband platforms as well. Close to 1 million video streams on VSPOT were logged Monday and Tuesday alone and "I Love New York" content on VH1.com hit 3 million page views during the two-day period. Additionally, over 40,000 mobile text messages were received during the hour-long telecast, in which viewers responded to a dynamic on-air VH1 Mobile poll asking which guy "New York" should choose.

The surprising ending, in which Tango proposed, left viewers wanting more.  Find out what happened after the cameras stopped rolling during the “I Love New York” reunion special premiering on Sunday, April 15 at 9:00 PM.

“I Love New York” proved to be a hit right out of the gate, attracting 4.4 million total viewers for the premiere episode on Monday January 8 becoming the most watched series premiere ever in VH1′s history.   

The show is executive produced by Mark Cronin & Cris Abrego for Mindless Entertainment & 51 Pictures who also produce the record-breaking hits “Flavor of Love,” “The Surreal Life" and “My Fair Brady.” Their latest project “Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School starring Mo’Nique” debuts on Sunday, April 15 at 10:00 PM ET/PT.

The “I Love New York” ratings come on the heels of VH1′s announcement that the network posted its highest-rated quarter ever in primetime among 18-49 viewers.  Primetime ratings at VH1 soared 20% during the first quarter of 2007, averaging a .5 in primetime during the period between Monday, January 1, 2007 and Sunday, April 1, 2007 marking the 19th quarter of consecutive quarter of year-to-year growth among total viewers.

    It’s all about ratings for tv and an “agenda” for those involved that has nothing to do with real love. But in either case, its an entertaining show which I enjoy.

    If you really paid attention, you can tell that New York is really in love with Chance and not Tango. Pay close attention, she even runs after him after choosing Tango. She’s “in love” with chance but, loves Tango for the stability he’ll provide cuz as we all can see, Chance is a male New York, both crazy, they can’t be together or hell would break loose.

    Chance is sexy and real with his. Tango a fake ass. New york should of follow her heart. Cuz Tango straigth played her that was grimey. But it’s all good cuz I wanna see season 2. I got love 4 NY she crazy and i’m feeling the show.

    Flav has no respect for women and Tango needs to grow up. As fisty as New York may be she deserves to be respected and Tango and Flav showed the world there true colours. The don’t deserve any woman until they learn to respect women. They would not like anyone to treat there mother or sister the way they treated Tiffany Pollard

    New York, honestly, I think you should not have treated Tango’s mom so bad and disrespected Tango the way you did. U know u were wrong, and you should’ve apologized and kissed his ass cuz he was down for U! When U disrespected his momma, U disrespected him. U R a smart woman and U love control, probably 2 much. But U gotta let some of that control go in order 2 truly B happy with the 1 U know is the best man 4 U!!!! Take my advice from a fellow Capricorn!!!

    hey i just want to say that i luv Chance and i hope that chance does have his own reality show soon and i will be visting his page and add him as my friend and i hope he does the same and New york is dumb for not picking chance and tango did not want her in the first place he said so on t.v like the black carpet, and 106 & park show he just came on there to be compittitsion and that was it he wasnt feelin her really. but i hope i love new york season 2 miss New York will find true Love . but like new york she’s cool.

    New York – Girl, In this life that we live it’s so hard to find an that one honest and true love that we crave thats damn near impossable and truly hard to come by. As I’m watching you go through this fun and sometimes heart string pulling experience in your life, I honestly feal for ya. I wish you the best & hope that you finally end up with the man that’s right for you. Our Lives are a series of beautiful, and sometimes trying times but times in our lives we must have to go through a few bad men in order to recognize a extrordinary one when he crosses our path. I hope that you don’t have to go through any bad men, You deserve a good one. Best of luck Girl – J
