The Monday, November 30, 2015, show had a whopping 12.56 million viewers according to Nielsen, a huge increase from the 10.29 million the previous Monday. And show insiders tell Radar that people on set believe the judges’ hot relationship is driving the spike.
“People are tuning in just to see the sparks fly between them, so they were told to keep the momentum going and make it even steamier,” the insider revealed.
“Gwen’s whole ‘I love you, Blake’ thing was not planned. However, it was perfect and they loved it.”
And while both are recently divorced, their new romance may provide some stability for them in the future.
“The executives already want to keep Gwen for next season and keep the cast as is,” the source said.
“The way things are going right now, there is no reason to sub her out for Christina.”
