Fans still care a whole lot about Teresa Giudice’s family and The Real Housewives of New Jersey, apparently!  Preliminary viewer numbers are in for part 1 of the three part special, Real Housewives of New Jersey: Teresa Checks In showcasing how her family is coping while she’s in prison – and they’re not too shabby! 

The RHONJ: Teresa Checks In special pulled in 1.2 million viewers on Sunday night in its first airing (Bravo normally counts several same-day airings to get their own final numbers).  For comparison’s sake: Manzo’d with Children had just 910,000 viewers (and only 719,000 last week). 

For further comparison:

  • Real Housewives of New York’s entire last season average was 1.27.  
  • Shahs of Sunset’s last season only averaged 1.17
  • Real Housewives of New Jersey’s last season average was 1.9 with an entire cast and a full season
  • Vanderpump Rules 1.3 average for season 3
  • Married to Medicine Season 3 average was 1.02
  • Million Dollar Listing L.A. last episode: 812K
  • Ladies of London average so far this season 870,000

So, all in all, it’s doing pretty well so far for simply being a three part special if it’s doing equal to and better than some of the networks’ full season shows! 

TELL US – ARE YOU SURPRISED THE SPECIAL IS OFF TO SUCH A GOOD START?
