Hello out there? Are you watching reality shows or are you outside enjoying the beginning of summer? I like to think I've found the perfect balance of both, but it seems we all need to step up our game a bit and show some love to old faithfuls.
Unfortunately, Monday night's shows didn't fare well in the ratings race. Desiree Hartsock's quest for love began on the Bachelorette, but a lot less people tuned in to watch her pass out roses than in seasons past. Likewise, viewers for The Voice are on a steady decline.

Perhaps we should blame it on the holiday weekend, but according Deadline, the ratings for the Bachelorette were lackluster. Season 9 debuted with a two-hour episode, but it drew 27 percent less viewers than last year's Season 8 premiere. In fact, the dating show had the lowest premiere numbers in the history of the franchise. Maybe everyone was still cooking out and enjoying pool time?
While The Voice managed to beat the Bachelorette in ratings, the singing competition is losing viewers each week. For the last six weeks, numbers have been dropping for the series, and Monday's show saw an all-time low in ratings for a performance episode. Of course, that may sound awful, but Monday's The Voice was the most watched and highest-rated show of the night.
What does all this mean? Well, apparently, y'all weren't watching a lot of reality television on Memorial Day…or maybe you were just tuning into the drama on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta!
