Perhaps it was all those promos for Teen Mom 2 during Monday’s sponsor-scarce episode Skins.

The MTV reality series delivered 4 million viewers on Tuesday night. That’s a season high and the third most-watched telecast in the Teen Mom/16 and Pregnant franchise and a season high.

The installment also posted a new season his among MTV’s core demographic of 12-34-year-olds, a 3.9 rating with 3 million total viewers.  

MTV has been on a roll with reality programming. Last week’s Jersey Shore — a special “Free Snooki” installment — pulled in 8.9 million total viewers, a new record.
