In reality TV viewing this week, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hillscontinued to decrease, not quite hitting a season low (1.35 million) but landing at only 1.6 million nonetheless. And several other shows also saw a slight drop, as well.
With 70% of the country buried in snow and in a deep freeze, you’d think that more people would be indoors by the fireplace binge watching trash TV!
Check out how your favorites fared this week! And tell us below why you think some aren’t gaining back audiences?
On last night’s Little Women: LA, Christy McGinty and Todd Gibel get disappointing news about IVF treatment, Elena Gant’s mom arrives from Russia. While Elena pursues her fashion line dream, the ladies head out to see a little person comedy act, and yet another brawl ensues at Elena and Preston’s housewarming party. Can you guess who started the brawl? But of course, you can. It starts with a “T” and rhymes with…okay, it’s Terra. Duh.
Christy, Todd, Briana Mason, and Matt are at a carnival decompressing after last week’s mess. Since they’re not tall enough to ride the roller coasters, they settle for the more tam Tilt-a-Whirl and some games. Briana’s family is still concerned about Matt, but Christy’s assessment of Matt is good so far. Only time will tell on that front.
Real Housewives of Atlanta logged an increase this week, with 2.853 million viewers, but its numbers are down overall. Last season, 10 of the 25 episodes garnered over four million viewers. The season six average was 3.87 million. As of right now the season seven average is 3.16 million. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which draws a much smaller but steady audience, attracted 1.78 million viewers this week. Take a look below to see how your shows are doing.
On last night’s Little Women LA, all of the ladies (plus a dude or two) go camping in the most non-luxury tents ever rented, a few brave souls go zip lining, and Briana Mason gets a surprise visit. In an honest moment of remorse, Todd Gibel apologizes to Terra Jole for his bad behavior of past weeks, which doesn’t sit well with Christy McGinty. But the real drama happens when Lila reveals her true colors during her last night in LA. And these colors cannot be found in the standard Crayola Crayon Box, because they are cray-zee.
Todd andChristy are packing for their trip to Catalina Island, sponsored by Terra and Joe Gnoffo. They have reservations about being stranded on an island with the same couple who instigated a huge fight last time they were all together. To make matters weirder, Lila (Joe’s ex) has been invited as well.
On last night’s Little Women LA, the aftermath of Todd’s rampage unsettles the group, the ladies run a 5K for charity, Lila attempts to make amends with Terra Jole in hopes of joining the friendship circle, and Elena Gant undergoes some sketchy plastic surgery.
We pick up at Terra’s “Used Date” party which she’s throwing for Tonya Banks. The women have all brought guys they used to date and are now offering up to Tonya, but the night is overshadowed by another ex altogether. Lila, Joe’s ex girlfriend, who Terra claims is still obsessed with Joe, somehow provokes Joe to start talking enough smack to instigate Christy McGinty’s husband, Todd. Before Todd can take a swing at Joe, Traci Harrison’s husband Erik jumps on him, knocking him to the ground as the cowardly Joe backs off. Elena’s husband Preston pulls Erik off of Todd, while Joe yells at Todd about verbally attacking “a pregnant lady” (Terra) last week and now trying to attack him. Erik is going ballistic in the corner. Christy blames the entire situation on Joe being immature (yes) and little people drinking too much alcohol (maybe). Christy and Erik start screaming at each other while Joe – who’s still wearing his douchey sunglasses – calls Christy and Todd pigs, complete with “oink oink” sound effects. Wow.
Briana Mason and Christy head to the spa to relax and complain about Briana’s open mic night, which Terra hijacked last episode. They conclude that Terra is a mean girl who wants to one-up everyone else. The ladies hop into a mud bath and next on the agenda is talking about Briana’s new boyfriend, Matt. Christy agrees with Briana’s family that there are bright red flags about Matt wanting to uproot his life and move to LA with Briana after only 2 months of dating (ahem, 3 days, actually). Briana is fed up with her family and plans to move out regardless of their concerns.
