It's that time again where we breakdown who's watching what on Sunday and Monday nights. Viewer numbers were up slightly this week, which we can probably credit to it not being a holiday weekend. And Keeping Up With The Kardashians being on a mid-season hiatus, sending fans scrambling for something else to tune into on Sunday nights! Don't worry – the K fam will kontinue to kause drama even without a reality show!
On Sundays, Real Housewives of New Jersey continued to disappoint Bravo by failing to rake in the viewers. Once considered the most popular of the Housewives franchises (next to Atlanta), the show is a big, ol' sinking ship this season as everyone is simply tired of the regurgitated storyline. Did I mention this is the THIRD season in a row we've been dealing with the same scenarios?

With the holiday weekend, our favorite reality TV stars were missing in action since not too many red carpet events were scheduled and the photographers probably took a vacation. As the week went on, the stars popped back up as the camera crews returned.

Indictment drama is not translating into new viewers for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, as the show's audience declined again this week! Another 200,000 fans tuned out the show this Sunday, bringing it down to 2.2 million watchers.
Brody Jenner Keeping Up with the Kardashians continues to reel in a decent sized viewership again this week, seeing a small downward turn, but overall is holding steady this season with an average of more than 2.5 million. This week the show pulled in 2.74 million fans who aren't as sick of the Kardashian-Jenners as they proclaim.
Those 200,000 RHONJ fans who jumped ship must've headed over to watch Hollywood Exes instead because the show saw a bump from 623,000 last week to 814,000 this week! Not too shabby considering the big mistake of moving it to Sunday night.
A whole lot of reality TV fans still care about the Kardashians – 2.856 million this week – despite the cries that say otherwise. I've honestly never seen an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, but a quick Google search tells me that Sunday's episode featured a pouty Kendall who wants her own beach house and a pissed off Kris who deniesBruce a putting green.
I'd rather shoot myself in the foot. Moving on…
The wee bump up that Real Housewives of New Jerseyreceived last week, possibly due to Joe and Teresa Giudice's federal indictment, disappeared faster than Poison's spray-on hair. This week, 2.410 million viewers came back to see the end of Teresa and Jacqueline's little tawk, which is a 6.37% decline in viewership. Is it time for Bravo to recast this hot mess?

Meanwhile, the sharks ate the Hollywood Exes alive, as only 667,000 viewers bothered to tune in. Hollywood Exes has two problems in my opinion. One – too much competition on Sunday. The show should move back to Wednesday. Two – viewers are over the Andrea Kelly and Jessica Canseco drama.
Finally, Princesses: Long Island finished their first (hopefully last) season on a higher note, with 899,000 viewers. Even the sharks swam away from this hot mess in search of something less irritating. Princesses Long Island's season average was 889,300.
Sheree asks Jessica why she hightailed it out of her birthday dinner. Jess explains, Josie invited a boy over, and she wanted to spy and/or surprise them by returning home earlier than expected. Sheree doesn't believe her. She pushes the issue, asking if Drea made her feel uncomfortable, but Jessica stands by her story. You mean the world doesn't revolve around Drea? Woah. Somebody better check her email. In all seriousness, I don't believe Jessica either, but I also can't blame her for fleeing from that restaurant.
Sheree pretty much tells Jessica that they all talked about her after she left. Sheree reminds Jessica of the comments she made about Gia's birth mother, adding, "We all came to the consensus that your timing was off." Jessica plays dumb. Sheree chastises Jessica for ruining Mayte's celebratory moment. And Jessica plays dumber. Sheree urges Jessica to reach out to Mayte, adding, "You don't have to be wrong to offer an apology." Jessica says she wants to make things right. Mayte's keeper will stop this from happening.
What makes for better reality television than the scorned exes of television? You know the answer is "not much" if you keep up with the ladies of Hollywood Exes! Now, it's being reported that two more celebrities' former wives are hoping to score their own show.
If that's the case, CeeLo Green and Usher should be shaking in their ridiculously expensive shoes, because Christina Shanta Johnson and Tameka Foster (the men's respective exes) want to be reality stars! As you know, of course, both divorces were nasty, nasty, nasty!
