    Pauly D beat Punk’d?!

    Pauly D is surprisinly staying steady in the demo. I thought people would have turned off by now. It’s an okay show, not amazing. Something to watch while Jersey Shore isn’t on, I suppose.

  • Lane

    I hope Pauly D falls below 1 mill

    Punkd :/

  • MM

    The Pauly D show is beyond boring. That’s good he’s steady in the demo but I’m still surprised considering it’s a Jersey Shore cast member, I’d expect much better ratings than that.

    Is it me or is MTV really falling behind in the ratings these days?

  • Ethan

    Eh I was hoping higher for Kathy. I had so much fun watching it. Not sure what Bravo’s expectations were, but hope it’ll continue. I need weekly Kathy Griffin!

  • MattM

    Eagleheart did pretty good, sweet.

  • TV Talks Numbers

    No numbers for Mary Mary on Wetv?

  • Michael

    Those Kathy numbers are woeful, especially since Andy really hyped her talk show.

  • Dillan

    @MM:

    “Jersey Shore” and “Teen Mom” seem to be MTV’s only high rated shows atm (that I know of).

  • Matt

    Jersey Shore and Teen Mom attract enough viewers to last MTV awhile.

  • xwiseguyx

    Kathy’s numbers were disappointing considering the massive promos, but a .5 is not terrible by Bravo Standards..

  • DW

    so america would rather see a reality show spin off than watch a show thats on NBC at 10 p.m.? sad. :(

  • rob60990

    Those Kathy numbers are horrible. it had a great lead-in and hype.

  • RJ

    I don’t recall “My Life on the D-List” ever doing that well, so why would this new show do well?

  • Jenn

    Loved Kathy! I hope the show does well from here on out.

  • Jackie

    I like Kathy but I felt her show was kind of unorganized. I also feel like it maybe should be 30 minutes instead of an hour.

  • Lisa

    Boy RHOA can do no wrong I see. I think you could put that show on in the middle of the night and the ratings wouldn’t change.

  • The Mike Factor

    Kathy definitely needs a little tweaking, then I think it’ll be just fine. Go RHOA!

  • Hihi1212

    Her numbers are not that bad. Chelsea is lower then that. So sh will settle a lil below chelsea and brain has to be happy with that. It’s bravo after all and they really back her. Her specials. Get between 400k and 700k

  • Hihi1212

    Her as in Kathy sorry

  • Bob

    only in america will a show like swamp people be the number one show on cable
