Just about every time we've written about this show, the comments have been overwhelmingly negative; so I guess we can assume that S&A readers aren't its biggest fans. Of course I'm generalizing. Those who do comment may not necessarily reflect the average reader's likes and dislikes. 

Regardless, whatever you might think about VH1's Queen Latifah-produced hour-long dramedy, Single Ladies, somebody's certainly watching, and watching religiously, because VH1 has renewed the series for a 3rd season.

According to the press release, the series has been averaging 3.2 million total viewers, up 10% from season 1, which means even more people are watching it than last season. 

And they're calling it basic cable’s #1 ad-supported regularly scheduled scripted show among women 18-49 over the course of the summer.

"Our viewers’ love affair with ‘Single Ladies’ got even bigger this year, growing significantly from its successful first season and dominating its timeslot on basic cable," said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Production, VH1. "We’re extremely happy that we’ll be able to give the audience another great season of the series and its honest, current take on love, dating and female friendship."

Season 2 starred LisaRaye McCoy (Keisha), Denise Vasi (Raquel) and Charity Shea (April) as three best friends navigating the dating world in Atlanta. This season saw the exit of Stacey Dash, and the addition of Cassandra Freeman , and the aforementioned Denise Vasi as newbies to the show's cast.

Sason 2's finale will happen next week Monday, August 27.

Season 3 is set to premiere later in 2013.

    Lets keep it real...Single Ladies 2 was bad in acting and writing. PLEASE hire some talented actors and actresses. This year 2012 story lines were BORING and WEAK. This year comments on radios, social media and hair salons “What happen to Single Ladies?" However, the men of single ladies were so handsome that folks kept watching. Last year 2011 story lines and cast members were AMAZING and FINEST which made great TV watching. Men and women fans were entertained and glad to see class, fashion, entrepreneurship, and diverse talent on the small screen. The pilot season was the real deal period.

    The season actually got better (to me). I've bee watching and I'm re-hooked!

    Good for them. I stopped watching during season 1.

    Yeah, I lost interest after Stacy Dash left. I did eventually watch the 1st episode for season 2, but they spent too much time on the new character that I cared nothing about, and Lisa Raye's acting was worse than last season. I like Travis Winfrey, D.B. Woodside, and Colin Salmon, but they're not playing primary characters, and I'd have to force myself to watch the ones who are.

    It's a soap opera like most successful cable 'dramas' that aren't police procedurals. It's frothy fun about wealthy beautiful people. Where else are black women going to see themselves rich and the object of desire of wealthy/sexy men on scripted TV?

    Acting might not be stellar but it's fine for the show. It has a nice niche and does well. I applaud the creator, Stacey Littlejohn.

    They can thank having Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta as a lead-in.

    Theyre lying. Nobody is watchingg that badly acted smut. They are trying to cover their backs for firing Stacey Dash. SMH
