Everyone loves a good trainwreck. Last night’s season premiere of “Kourtney & Kim Take New York” set a new ratings record. Nearly 3.2 million viewers tuned in to watch the beginning of the end of Kim Kardashian’s short-lived marriage to Kris Humphries. That’s 6 percent more eyeballs than the Season 1 opener garnered in Jan. 2011.
Also worth noting: A majority of that audience (2.3 million) belongs to the coveted 18-49 demographic. E! says the episode ranks in the network’s top 10 highest rated telecasts ever among women 18-49, and top 20 among the total 18-49 group.
