Centered on finding a beau for two-time Flavor of Love contestant New York, the new VH1 reality competition series drew 4.4 million viewers and posted a 2.55 Nielsen Media Research rating for its 9PM ET/PT premiere, according to Multichannel News, a Daily Variety publication.  I Love New York was also Monday's highest-rated program on cable television.

New York eliminated her first five suitors during the series' premiere.  The second episode of I Love New York will air on VH1 on Monday, January 16 at 9PM ET/PT.
