Posted By on January 12, 2007

"Flavor Of Love" contestant New York made history on Monday (January 9) when her new reality series, "I Love New York," became the highest debut in VH1 history.

The show reportedly drew in approximately four million people between the ages of 18 and 49, which has 20 men competing for the reality star's (real name: Tiffany Pollard) affection.

This comes of the heels of 2006's season finale of "Flavor of Love," which drew a staggering 7.5 million viewers, making it the most watched show on basic cable for the year.

"I Love New York" is one of the many reality shows in VH1's Celereality programming block. Others include "ego trip's The (White) Rapper Show," which made an impressive debut on Monday as well, receiving 2.3 million viewers.

The controversial show — starring former 3rd Bass member MC Serch and Grammy Award-wining producer Prince Paul (De La Soul) — features a handful of white MCs competing for $100,000.

Both shows air on Monday's on VH1 at 9 and 10 p.m. EST, respectively.
