The series also dominated on social media, causing three trending terms on Twitter and becoming the No. 4 most social primetime cable program (excluding sports events).

On Tuesday's one-hour premiere episode, Bill Klein, Jennifer Arnold and their adopted son Will arrived in India to pick up the new addition to their family, daughter Zoey — after more than a year of preparation and 20 hours of traveling.

The excitement of their new daughter was tempered by Arnold's health. She would later be diagnosed with a rare cancer.

    This young family is a delight to watch. They don't let their stature keep them from following their dreams, and they are happy to take the audience for a positive ride that is full of love and hope. Dr. Arnold is a teacher at heart, happy to teach the audience what she knows about children and medicine. They have shone a positive light on adoption and the children that may have spent a lifetime in an orphanage, unwanted because of their stature. Little William lights up the screen with his infectious laugh and toothy smile. This season, Jen will teach us about cancer survival. How great it is to see reality television at is very best. I hope they always keep it organic as we continue to watch this family. Here is to many more seasons!


    Love Jen and Bill and Will ! Get well soon Jen and congratulations to you and Bill and Will on bringing Zoey to such a wonderful family
