"The Real Housewives of New York City" are a real big hit.
The reality show's season 3 finale earned 2.64 million viewers, Bravo announced, a series high and a 30% improvement over season 2's last episode.
The Bravo show reportedly scored an average 2.02 million viewers for the season.
Fans can catch up with the ladies' latest drama on June 10 and June 17, when the stars will return with a two-part reunion special.
"The reunion had heightened crazy moments," star Bethenny Frankel told Access Hollywood's Billy Bush in an interview earlier this week, adding that the finale itself was far wilder than fans were able to see.
"What you saw was probably like a four and what went down was probably a 10. It's not even funny," she said.
Bethenny – whose "Bethenny Getting Married?" spin-off special also airs June 10 – added to Billy that she may be ready to move on after three seasons of the show.
"I tend to think it might be the end," she said. "It was really gross shooting it the whole season. It was really hard for me."
