All time low? Quiet possibly. Of course, one thing must be kept in mind: MTV decided to air this episode on the 4th of July. I know what you’re thinking: most people don’t do much at night on the 4th. Oh wait, they’re watching FIREWORKS, not The Real World.
According to TVByTheNumbers The episode scored a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demo and attracted 863,000 viewers. Obviously the 4th had a major impact on the ratings, but this isn’t going to help the season rebound.
Honestly, I think MTV should have waited 2 weeks on The Real World. I think it would have done better to not have to deal with the 4th of July. Plus, this is the time when all of the Big Brother fans crawl out of TV hibernation and start watching again.
