MTV: Music Television ushered in its latest installation of The Real World -- this time
set in Las Vegas -- to strong ratings Tuesday night.
The Real World Las Vegas debuted to a 2.8 rating and 3.2 million viewers,
according to Nielsen Media Research.
The reality show, now in its 12th season, scored a 3.9 rating among MTV's
core 12- through 34-year-old viewers.
In a bit of a departure from the normal Real World routine, the Las
Vegas cast is living in a penthouse suite at the new Palms hotel, and they will take
various jobs in the hotel/casino.
