According to TVByTheNumbers, the numbers for the Real Housewives of Miami are to be found somewhere at the bottom on the Atlantic Ocean. Miami was hit by a ratings hurricane. A football game and MTV’s season finale of their show, “Awkward,” beat the second episode of the Real Housewives of Miami in the ratings game on Thursday night!
How could this have happened? Bravo took great care in overhauling the RHOM for its second season. NOTE: If you are wondering what happened to the RHOM’s dismal first season and WHY it was given an overhaul, please read “RHOM Prepped For Failure“…
Why is the re-vamped RHOM doing so badly in the ratings? Here’s why… and it doesn’t take any BravoBrainiac to figure this one out!
Bravo has thrown Miami into the mix when viewers are invested in TWO other Housewives shows that are still running: RHONJ and RHONY! Bravo expects Housewives’ viewers to take in Miami while all the drama is still going on with New Jersey? Yes, just New Jersey. Bravo threw New York in the mix, just as they have done with Miami, while the RHOC and the RHONJ were still going strong.
Ratings prove that Housewives viewers get invested in their favorite franchises. Ratings also prove that throwing New York into the mix was not such a good idea, as their ratings were in the tank from the get-go… just as Miami’s ratings are at the bottom of the Atlantic! Just as Miami, the RHONY ratings were extremely disappointing when the franchise premiered, leading to an immediate call for cast changes… but this is about Miami!
Bravo has taken a good thing and destroyed it. Bravo is bracing itself, knowing that the Housewives franchises have jumped the shark and simply don’t care what the ratings are. Bravo is headed toward not relying on their “reality” core programs, based on the fact that Bravo hired Andrew Wang in a newly created position… head of scripted TV at Bravo.
If Bravo doesn’t care… why should viewers??
NOTE: EXCUSE ME WHILE I CATCH MY BREATH FROM LAUGHING… It is totally ridiculous that after writing over 4,000 posts re ALL the Housewives franchises/behind the scenes/producers involvement/Bravo and MissAndy that SH would NOW be posting THIS item re RHOM and ratings…
TO ATTRACT READERS TO SH!
Yes, that false accusation was actually written… and that idiotic comment will go in the “Trashed Comments From Morons” trash heap! Back to laughing…
(Thanks to SH reader “RA”!!!)
