Show's don't make it to four seasons unless we watch. And apparently with Basketball Wives, we can't turn away.
They fight...and fight...and fight, and sometimes get drinks thrown in their faces, too. And we watch.
We "like" their Facebook page 720,000 times. We move the Nielsen needle enough for this VH1 franchise to keep coming back, in one-hour form on Monday nights.
Think of all the shows that have flopped over the years, shows you liked that didn't last one season—let alone four.
They're apparently doing something right here, something that didn't work with the series' Baseball Wives counterpart. That show was all Anna Benson, who hasn't been relevant since our modems said 56k on the side.
These "Wives" have it, and they'll be bringing the drama back. Hey, even if it's not your thing, you can't argue that it's better than some of the regular-season NBA going on right now.
