So Basketball Wives LA Is A Ratings Fail

October 12, 2012  |  

Based on our mentions when we live-tweet through “Basketball Wives LA” on Monday nights we kind of had an inkling no one was really watching the show, but we didn’t realize no one was watching.

Rhymes With Snitch sort of blew the lid off the ratings fail, using data from TV By The Numbers which shows this ranking for BBWLA this past week:

Basketball Wives LA 2 VH1 8:00 PM 1.198 0.6

FYI, 0.6 is not a good rating. The slip has actually been pretty gradual for season 2 of “Basketball Wives LA” which premiered with 1.81 million views in September, dropped to 1.4 million the next week, and is now hovering somewhere below the 1.2 million mark. Just to be clear it’s these ladies and not VH1, “T.I. and Tiny,” which comes on after BBWLA, is pulling in better rank with 1.34 million views this past Monday, and even “Chrissy and Mr. Jones” beat out both of them with 1.41 million views.

None of these shows is anywhere close to the figures rache’ “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” pulled in, which hovered around 3.7 million viewers during its first season, but if BBWLA’s rank keeps dropping these ladies could soon find themselves unemployed. And since none of the cast members appears to have a plan B (besides being video chicks) I’m thinking they better step up their side hustle game in the next few weeks.

Have you been watching “Basketball Wives LA” at all?
