Yee-ouch! TVByTheNumbers reported the ratings for Wednesday’s episode of The Real World St. Thomas, and things aren’t looking too hot right now. The season premier pulled in a total of 1.201 million viewers. This could very well be the lowest rating for any Real World premier.
Hopefully the season will rebound, because I do think the season looks good. The 1.2 million viewers translates into a 0.6 rating in the 18-49 demo.
To be fair, all MTV shows are down right now. America’s Best Dance Crew did poorly this season, and Teen Mom has lost a full 1 million viewers since its premier 2 weeks ago. Still, the ratings suck. And The Real World needs to see things turn around right about now.
