The return of a vintage TV game show format has brought a ratings record for a cable channel, Deadline.com reports. The new show is “Hip Hop Squares,” based on "Hollywood Squares," the game show with the tic-tac-toe format that ran from the 1960s until the mid-2000s.

MTV2’s "Hip Hop Squares" taps personalities from hip hop culture. The show became the network’s highest-rated and most-watched series debut in the 12-34 demographic, with a 0.39 rating, the story notes.

The number was up 30% from MTV2’s most recent series premiere, “Nitro Circus Live,” the story reports.
