I watched last night. Apparently I was one of the few. This season of The Real World was off to a very, very weak start.
According to TVByTheNumbers, the first episode of The Real World Ex-Plosion was viewed by an underwhelming 949,000 people. It also received a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demographic.
Initially, it was reported that The Real World was viewed by only 686,000 viewers. This number was adjusted up to 949,000. Considerably better than the initial report, but still not good. This premier was higher than Portland’s, but lower than St. Thomas’s.
