weekly reality show ratings report

All shows were up this week, which isn’t a shock seeing as there is little else to do in the winter 🙁 Survivor came close to breaking the 12 million mark again, and Dancing with the Stars had their highest rating since the 2nd episode, but Hell’s Kitchen is still struggling going against the big Wed night lineup of not only Survivor but other huge shows (Criminal Minds, Modern Family, etc).

TAR = The Amazing Race

weekly reality show ratings report

This week in the ratings report, we get the return of Hell’s Kitchen finally, and the break hurt them by a million viewers, ouch!  Hopefully they pick up as people realize they’re back on.  The Amazing Race 17, and Survivor: Nicaragua are also suffering mid-season lull’s, though TAR is always hurt competing with Sunday Night Football, and crazy schedule on the east coast.

Dancing with the “stars” however, nobody is touching those ratings any time soon.  People love their dancing with former and wannabee celebrities I guess.

weekly reality show ratings report

Welcome to the 2nd ratings report.  This week most of the shows increased in ratings, especially The Amazing Race which got back on track with 11 million compared to last weeks 9 million.   Merge seemed to help Survivor as well as they’re back over 12 million after dipping under for the first time this season.  The Dancing with the Stars juggernaut still held strong and doesn’t seem to be dropping any time soon.

Rob McCue BLUE 3 (-) Solid first 2 weeks for Rob
Russell Kook BLUE 4 (-) How can you not be a chef with that last name?
Melissa Doney RED 5 (-) Best way to make it far is having quiet weeks

Boris Poleschuk BLUE 8 (-) A little shakey to start his HK career.

I know we haven’t put out a Hell’s Kitchen recap yet, hey 2 episodes in one night is a lot of blogging, especially considering Teen Mom, Survivor, and Dancing With The Stars were also on this week, but rest assured, a recap will be up shortly, and written by Mulari so you will get all her witty humor.

Anyway, during the first week, Hell’s Kitchen contestant Antonia Boregman collapsed and appeared to have a type of panic attack / seizure, and honestly how can you blame her after Ramsey absolutely destroyed her signature dish and humiliated her on national tv.  Is that an excuse?  I mean Hell’s Kitchen has been on for a long time, you have to know what to expect when you enter that place.  Ramsey can be downright nasty on that show, especially when it comes to the opening signature dishes, mostly for entertainment purposes.

Well, unlike other people who have left the show for medical reasons, Gordon was very vague about this one and just said she will not be returning.    After much digging, the best I can come up with is that she’s home and doing great, so despite rumors, Antonia Boregman did not die!  Good to hear, and I wish her all the best.  It was probably a smart move to get out early anyway, that show is just brutal on people.

Recaps coming later 🙂  Plenty of good stuff to talk about, so subscribe using one of the options on the top right, or bookmark us!

I started watching MasterChef later in the season, so I really have no clue about the format other than it tries hard to not be Hells Kitchen while still being a cooking show, until of course they do team matches and even do Red and Blue teams, but whatever.

One thing that annoys me on the show is the judge Joe Bastianich.  Sure, you may own like a thousand wineries and restaurants, so I’m sure you have your credentials, but enough with the dick act.  Just because Gordon Ramsey is actually pretty nice on the show doesn’t mean  you have to step in as the token douchebag on the show.  We get it, you’re trying to make a name for yourself like Ramsey did a few years back when Hells Kitchen first came out, but the spot for a cooking host who isn’t scared to speak his mind has been filled, and he stands next to you every episode.
