The third season opener of Sister Wives delivered for TLC on Sunday night.

Sister Wives lured 2.8 million total viewers at 9 p.m. with "The Announcement," tying tune-in for the second season closer, and was the night's top primetime cable program among women 25-54 and women 18-49.

Against a competitive night on broadcast and cable with a slew of premieres and launches, Sister Wives drew TLC's best ratings in almost two years in the women 25-54 (2.4) and women 18-49 (2.4) demos. Among the younger female 18-34 demo, Sister Wives -- revolving around the Brown family -- drew a 2.3 rating, outperforming CBS' The Good Wife (2.3 vs. 1.6) in the category.

TLC is touting Sunday as the network's best performance in primetime in a little more than one year.

Sister Wives airs Sundays at 9 p.m.
