The debut episode of “Khloe and Lamar” aired on E! on Sunday Night, and for Lamar and anybody involved with the show, it was a successful first episode.

According to Variety, “Khloe & Lamar” opened to draw 2.6 million viewers in its premiere, slightly below the most recent “Kardashian” debut.

Fox Sports Radio’s, Ben Maller, broke down the numbers:

The Lakers have the highest local television ratings in the NBA, but their star Lamar Odom crushed them with his new reality TV show.

(Khloe and Lamar attracted) 835% more viewers than the average Lakers home game gets on local cable (Fox Sports Net West) in Los Angeles.

Keep in mind the Lakers are TOPS in the NBA with 278,000 average households.

In-fact thats 216% more eyeballs than the TOP SIX NBA teams get COMBINED (822,000) on local cable, according to ratings from SPORTS BUSINESS DAILY.

Looks like pairing Laker fans, with Kardashian fans may be the recipe for success.

    The Kardashians are doing the Lakers a disservice. LO should be focusing on the playoffs and not some lame reality show. What are the Kardashians famous for anyway? A bunch of attention hos.

      Ummm, LO has been the most consistent all season! He is playing some of the best basketball of his career. He is happy and at peace! Marriage has been good to LO. Proud to fan that supports him on and off the court.

      And the show is actually good! Congrats to LO and Khloe for 2.6 million viewers!

    I usually hate reality shows but Khloe & lamar is an exception. I don’t know where all the hate’s coming from but Lamar’s playing the best basketball of his career. Why so much hate? He’s also more comfortable around cameras now which can only do him good playing in front of big crowds.

    Khloe and Lamar are exceptionally entertaining and endearing at the same time. Khloe’s bold personality, and the gentle kindness from Lamar make an intriguing show. I watched their show on E! in HD with my DISH Network employee subscription. My best friend just borrowed my iPad to watch it because I recorded it on my DVR. She has CABLEVISION which doesn’t have the same technology that DISH does.
