Found August 20, 2013 on Between The Ropes:
A big question heading into WWE’s reality show, “Total Divas” on Sunday, was how viewership would fare competing against Summerslam. This week’s episode averaged 1.35 million viewers for the fourth episode compared to 1.67 million viewers from last week, but the episode from Sunday did better than the debut episode.
