The reality TV viewer numbers are in – and Real Housewives of New Jersey failed to draw a big crowd. The season 6 premiere attracted 2.14 million viewers overall. However, in the key demo, it was the lowest rated premiere episode in the history of the show. For comparison’s sake, season 5 premiered to 2.842 million and the season 5 average was 2.29 million.
Also on Sunday, 2.3 million watched Khloe move on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, 1.212 million tuned in to see the series premiere of Game of Crowns, and 1.64 million, a season high, watched the Browns meet the Richards on Sister Wives. On Monday, Lizzie’s disastrous dinner party on Real Housewives of Orange County garnered 1.725 million, Mimi’s sex tape release on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta attracted 3.88 million, and Noelle’s pot stirring on Ladies of London logged 782,000 viewers.
As for the rest of the week, the Married to Medicine reunion shows averaged 1.14 million viewers, 2.2 million welcomed back Teen Mom 2, 1.131 million tuned in to see Carole’s birthday party on Real Housewives of New York, and 1.122 million watched the season premiere of Don’t Be Tardy. The series premiere of LeAnn & Eddie on VH1 didn’t make the Top 100 Cable Broadcasts list, however, VH1′s Dating Naked made the list with 826,000 viewers. So I think it’s safe to assume LeAnn & Eddie flopped.
