  • Michael

    RHOM is doing slightly better, but these ratings won’t warrant a third season.

  • John A

    Its Always Sunny doing well. The season started low but has grown in viewers and demo. Im confident it will get a 10th season.

  • Mr Mikey

    Wow Jersey Shore is going down down down and I love it.

  • John A

    And wow Jersey Shore really died a quick death. This used to pull 4 and 5 in demo.

  • Michael

    People have grown tired of seeing people act like idiots and getting wasted.

  • Meanie

    Jersey shore does worse and worse

    It crazy how RHOM drop right back down in the ratings. RHOA & RHOBH sneak peak did better than a RHOM episode.
    Bravo needs to consider putting it on After RHOA or RHOBH cause RHOM needs help getting ppl to watch

  • Jesus

    Both last nights sunny and the league were great episodes ! Good for them! Tonight is monsters inside me Dallas cheer leading TOP MODEL Last man standing NIKITA Grimm shark tank and ultimate fighter yeeeee!!!!!!!

  • Dodge Hickey

    @John A: there is already an option for a 10th season there

    I wonder why Sunny started low this season? Last night was the strongest this season I hope they keep belting out quality episodes

  • silvit

    @Michael

    Pfft… they just moved on to the next “best” thing: Duck Dynasty, Honey Boo Boo, not exactly rocket science.

    That’s always what happens with phenomena like Jersey Shore. Just give it time to wear out, they are always their own killer. :-)

  • Clarke

    People have (finally) come to their sense and realized their is MUCH better things to do with your life than watch Jersey Shore. The show was a cultural flash in the pan and I hope the media & MTV can forget they ever existed.

  • Michael

    Hills went through the same downward spiral for MTV.

  • Jared

    Although RHOM isn’t a ratings monster I’m not sure Bravo would be so quick to throw in the towel with a series averaging 1+ million viewers per episode and encore repeat. There’s plenty of other series on Bravo that do far worse.

  • Michael

    Jared, but Bravo is notoriously known for the Housewives franchise. So, the standards are much higher for housewives.

  • luke

    I used to watch Jersey Shore faithfully until this current last season. MTV decided to let this show die instead of re casting it and giving it new life like Real World. Either way this show is doing pretty bad compared to previous seasons. Oh well..theres still Honey Boo Boo!

  • Jared

    @Michael

    I definitely agree with you as far as Bravo having higher standards for the housewives franchise. But to make a little comparison Project Runway All Stars had the same demo rating as RHOM. I would consider Project Runway a flagship series for Lifetime as well. That being said I wouldn’t consider Project Runway All Stars in danger of cancellation so why should RHOM be?. I think as long as RHOM is doing better than it previous season..which I’m assuming it is..I wouldn’t be surprised if Bravo held into it for another season.

  • Kaylie

    @Clarke, Well you’re right. But Snooki & Jwoww have been picked up for a second season. So, you can’t forget about them. Also, Jersey Shore is MTV’s highest rated series of all time so I doubt they’ll ever be forgetted. I doubt Honey Boo Boo or Duck Dynasty wil deliver Jersey Shore ratings.

    I wonder how the Jersey Shore series finale will do. At this rate, I doubt it’ll even reach at least 3 million viewers.

  • dante

    I think the problem with the RHOM is that there isn’t a breakout star or a villian viewers love to hate. RHONJ has Teresa..RHOA has NeNe..RHOBH has Lisa and Kyle RHONY has Ramona. I just feel like if anybody is the star of Miami it would be the newly cast Joanna Krupa. This season is way better than last season.

  • Ram510

    YES!!! Always Sunny had a GREAT episode last night and I’m glad the ratings were up. Hopefully it can get back over a 1.0

    The League was also amazing, it was a great hour of comedy last night!

  • Jared

    @dante

    I agree. Loving Joanna Krupa on the Miami Housewives.

  • Melanie

    I am also loving RHOM this season and glad to see it got a little boost. Hopefully it will get picked up for a third season. Joanna is the breakout star on the show and so is her sister Marta. They are certainly bringing the drama and it is way more entertaining than last season. The previews for Atlanta and Beverly Hills looked great as well.
