Is Melissa Peterman's new sitcom a hit? You betcha! The "Fargo" actress and Minnesota native garnished a lot of interest in last week's premiere of "Working Class," attracting the most 18-49 viewers that CMT has ever had for a series debut. It drew about 1.2 million and boasted a nearly 200 percent increase from the prior time-period average.

Numbers should be even higher for this Friday's episode because it features an appearance from Reba McEntire, who starred with Peterman on "Reba."
