The season opener, 'Pranks and Dranks,' reeled in 1.6M P2+ viewers and was up 53% compared to its 2012 levels. The episode surpassed its previous high of 1.2M P2+ viewers, making it the most-watched episode in series history.

'Pranks and Dranks', which aired Friday, March 22, at 9 PM (ET/PT) also ranks as the series' #1 episode based on delivery and scored double-digit gains among all other major demos, including HH (1M, +38%), P25-54 (833K, +66%), P18-49 (824K, +69%), W18-49 (443K, +79%), W25-54 (419K, +68%), M25-54 (414K, +63%) and M18-49 (381K, +57%).
