VH1’s “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” is samba-ing to a new night.
The South Beach spinoff of hit series and franchise-sparker “Love & Hip Hop” will return to the Viacom cable channel on Wednesday, Jan. 2 at 8/7c. Fans of the South-Florida version of the show will want to update their DVRs from Monday recordings to Wednesdays.
The New York City-version will air on Mondays as “Miami” holds down Wednesdays. That means VH1 gets a double-dose of tune-in — and TV ratings are the strength of the reality-show universe.
“Love & Hip Hop: Miami” marked VH1’s highest rated reality launch since 2014 when it debuted last January, and the various incarnations of “Love & Hip Hop” regularly rank as cable’s No. 1 unscripted show on Monday nights.
VH1 will look to continue on with that success with a number of returning cast members (below), as well as the addition of comedian and viral sensation Jessie Woo and underground rapper/song-writer Khaotic.
“Love & Hip Hop: Miami” is executive produced by Mona Scott-Young and Stephanie R. Gayle and co-executive produced by Maricarmen Lopez for Monami Entertainment. Toby Barraud, Stefan Springman, David DiGangi, Dave Patry, Rich Allen and Thomas Jaeger are executive producers for Eastern TV. Nina L. Diaz, Liz Fine, Vivian Gomez and Jihoon Zun executive produce for VH1.
