While Eileen Davidson ("Days of our Lives," "The Young and the Restless") won't be appearing on the reality series until its third episode, Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" managed to snag its highest-rated season premiere in over three years, according to Nielsen Media Research ratings data, with 2 million total viewers tuning in, up 25 percent from the prior season premiere (11/4/13), on Tuesday, November 18.

While it's unclear whether it had anything to do with the rescheduling of an episode featuring the men of CBS' "The Young and the Restless," Sony Pictures Television produced daytime talker, "The Queen Latifah Show," has been canceled, it was announced today by the studio.
