As we previously reported, Married to Medicinepremiered to 1.89 million viewers, making it the highest-rated non-spinoff series premiere in Bravo's history. The ratings went up and down throughout the season, ranging from 1.18 million (the wine tour) to 2.66 million (the poolside brawl), but averaged out at 1.8 million.
The 1.8 million average makes Married to Medicine the highest-rated non-franchise/non-spinoff freshman series on Bravo since Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, which debuted in 2003. Over 1.5 million viewers tuned in to Sunday night's season finale.
Yes, I find Mariah to be too aggressive and extremely unlikable, but that does not mean I'm blind to Kari andToya's antics. Do I sometimes think the snotty comments directed at Mariah are warranted though? Yes. Definitely. More than likely, if you do not like Koya, you cheer on Quariah. To each their own. If I were Kari or Toya, I'd completely eliminate Mariah (and by extension Quad) from my life, but I get that they all need to interact for the sake of the show. Lucky us! ;)
Quad and Gregory kick off the season finale with yet another disagreement over starting a family. He wants a baby; she wants to be a reality TV star. Quad says, besides all that "pushing, tugging, pulling, and gaining weight," there are too many issues in this group of women to bring in kids of her own. All is right in Quad's world as long as she has an audience (says me) and her dogs (says her). There's nothing wrong with that, at all, but my goodness did these two ever talk about expectations, goals, family, etc. before they got married?
Kari, who organized the trip, shared, "I was glad that I had invited the ladies on the wine tour, but for me it was a very difficult day. I had worked hard to put things together, so that everyone could have a good time and hopefully heal from things. It was a generous invitation and a peace offering. One that I hoped would bring lasting peace."
Quad's "short bus" comment ruined Kari's warm and fuzzy feelings almost instantly. "Quad immediately complained that the bus was too small. I could not believe her rudeness. I guess that for Quad that a 16-passenger party bus with plush leather couches, two full bars, fiber optic lighting, and plasma TVs is not enough for a one-hour journey for six people."
Our favorite reality TV stars can't get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!

One star, Asa Soltan Rahmati, isn't fazed. "They hated it, but they watched it every week, they knew ever detail," said Asa. "I think, secretly, they loved it."
