Real Housewives Of New Jersey Breaks Bravo Records! Most Viewed Season Premiere Ever!

April 24, 2012 |By Continue Reading


What did they expect? I mean, the Real Housewives of New Jersey is the most real franchise. They are actually struggling and airing all their dirty laundry out there for the world to see! RHONJ season four premiere was ranked the most viewed season premiere in Bravo history with 3 million total viewers! Congrats to Bravo.

I think RHONJ stands out for the specific reason that these ladies were friends at one point before the show. And that there is family in the show that like I said, don’t care to air things out, don’t care if they are making other family members look bad by saying what they say. This show is as real as it gets. To bad the people in it aren’t!

My, oh, my…..T finally listened to someone with wisdom: always apologize for YOUR part in a disagreement and then move on. She hasn’t been bashing anyone, but she looks just as bad when she just continually repeats her point of view — it never helps so just apologize. Proud of her, and I was never a fan. Now if she will only keep her mouth shut – no more excuses – it will drive those toxic twits even more crazy than they are now.

I don’t understand why they think 3 million viewers are a lot? There was a time that if a show only produced 7-9 million viewers, it was cancelled without notice. So, I really don’t understand the ratings and why one circumstance and tier chart is different from another. I can see feeling excited for 12-13 million but 3? And by the way, to all those who said they wouldn’t watch you obviously went against yourselves and watched anyway. Feeling Guilty? lol.

I just read the follow up’s the next day on this blog. They’re not getting my ratings. In fact, I don’t even have Bravo on my tv anymore. Andy Cohen can kiss my right hiney cheek!

Annah, don’t look at me. I refuse to watch because I personally can’t stand the pure trash. My brain cannot handle Melissa and Joe Gorga. They are shallow and trashy and frankly, are better fit for Jerry Springer. That’s how I see this show. I think it’s The Jerry Springer Show in the guise of a new title.

Part 1 of the season 3 reunion special drew 3.4 million total viewers at 10 p.m. So the premiere for season 4 is down from that 3.4 million to 2.9 million.

So it goes to show that while Bravo is attempting to play out the historical ratings game, attempting to have viewers believe that more are tuning in, the fact is, the show has lost many viewers. Also, this is the first episode and ratings usually don’t continue upward. I think the ratings will rapidly drop after the third episode. It’s going down. You’ll see. Good Job Mike! You’ve proven that Bravo is full of you know what.

I hope the ratings will drop from now on because I want feelin’ the show with all their Teresa BS. It’s like they’re so obsessed to bring Teresa down, and I’m so over them. 3 million isn’t a lot compared to Walking Dead, Revenge, GCB, RHOA, even stupid Jersey Shore, so I’m not impressed. I know people watched the premiere because of Teresa though. That’s what keeps the viewers tuning in, but I hope the ratings DROP BIG TIME so Bravo will maybe change this family bashing bullshit.

That is my wish as well. If you want to send a message people, you need to boycott this show.
You can watch Tre on Celebrity Apprentice this upcoming Sunday on NBC. Lets go folks……. We can stop the bullying.

If you are afraid to miss something all you have to do is read others posts, or you can wait 24 hours and watch it on youtube.

I’m a nobody compared to the millions on this earth..lol but wanted to let them know I’m not watching a show that makes $$ over supporting a sibling (and his “family”) coming on to air personal family matters against his own sister. It’s not entertaining to me. I miss the fun in all the HW’s shows. They’ve all become nothing but hateful.

Some drama is good, that’s why I watched. But it’s a constant negative ALL the time now.

I noticed that when you tweet about NJ HWs announcement/press such this one you leave Jac’s twitter off the list. Is there a reason for that. I see you have no problem @tweeting her about tweets you don’t agree with. Just a question and I am prepared to get blasted for asking it. Thanks!

I don’t always leave her name out. I just can’t fit all 5 of their names along with the story on a tweet so I have to leave one out. I randomly choose and chose to not add her name not for any reason.

I think Jac was told by the Don that she was not to act like that again on television. Someone is controlling Jac and it’s not hard to see who. Thirteen pages of a blog tells me that she’s desperate to convince HERSELF of something, not us. Don’t forget-Caroline thinks she’s “upper class” so she can’t have her sister in law on television cavorting with a woman with bad financials. It doesn’t “look good”. Probably doesn’t want her “good name” associated with the likes of the Giudices because they’re broke. Real class act that Caroline. Dumps her friends when it’s… Read more »

I think you would be surprised to find that nearly every Teresa fan was a Jac fan. We like them together. I personally came into this season hoping questions would be answered and i would like Jac again. I WANT to like her. However, with her latest blog.. theres no chance in that. It will take a lot for me to become a Jac fan again.

Jac and Tre are good fun when they get together with the families,, at least they USED to be big fun. I think Jac has an escort or dancing past and really does not want that on the show. This keeps her nervous about everything said to the outlets. But she is also forgiving, if she could hug dirty D AFTER she brought charges against Ashlee, then she could forgive Tre. Now she and Chris Laurita are in legal issues, I think she needs the money and probably something to keep herself busy. so she has to make up lost… Read more »

Say What,

Say on, sister. I look back wistfully at the Teresa and Jacqueline that were together in that cruise ship glass elevator. Juiced up and having fun. Remember the way Jax shook her heiny as they were going up on that thing. They were great together. It was fun just watching them. Too bad none of that seems to matter to anyone but some viewers – and Teresa.

Why all the hate for Jacqueline. Is it because she speaks the truth? Life isn’t all happiness and sunshine as Teresa wants everyone to believe. It is okay for Teresa to tell Joey about Melissa leaving him for richer man yet god forbid anyone warn her about her husband.

By the way, Juicy Joe never denied the cheating rumors. And Teresa said she will stand by her man.

Yes, I am not welcome at this site because I don’t worship Teresa.

The dislike for Jacqueline fueled when she went on her insane twitter rant about Teresa. Point she made was when friends part ways, it’s ok to air all of the private things friends tell each other whether inappropriate, unkind or unreasonable? Friends are there to vent whatever without the fear of it being thrown in your face if your not friends anylonger? Bad action. That’s why the Jacqueline dislike.

Lolag, When Jacqueline decided to forgo the reunion show for whatever reason she gave up the right to yell from the peanut gallery as it was underway. I am referring to her tweeting, “Teresa is scum” and for what was a running Twitter commentary during the reunion show she didn’t have the guts to show up for. Teresa knew the beating she was going to take yet she showed up and took them all on. Teresa proved she has real guts.

Quite the contrary lolag, I do like Jac, but I do not like her behavior. How can you throw away a long, long, friendship because of Tre’s problems with her FAMILY. Like Caro says, ” leave MY FAMILY out of this” They need to practice what they preach. Jac has lost herself and is now MeHo and Caro’s puppet. She needs to learn a lesson about hyprocisy, if she can stick up for Dannielle I would think that she could stick up for Tre. I enjoyed the relationship that Tre and Juicy and Jac and Chris had.

They better all hope that T doesn’t leave the show. They’re all doing pretty good on her back, while they stab it. Every scene is filled with T bashing. Don’t they have anything else to say? Carol is too stupid to see how they played her. They could have never accomplished this without the great Caroline. The Manzo’s actually think the Gorga’s and Wakile’s like them. How stupid can they be? They all used Caroline to help with their dirty deeds to discredit T. Bully’s isn’t the word. There are no words for this kind of betrayal.

Who would watch if T goes? They’re all so boring. I actually change the channel when the Manzo kids come on and it’s not because I have no use for them, it’s because they’re so freaking boring. I had no use for Danielle but I still watched her. Kathy is useless, she bores me to death. Mel and Joey, I’m sick of him panting over her all the time, enough already. And her “voice” is certainly not going to attract viewers, she stinks.

Caroline & Kathys blogs were alike & Jac and Melissas were alike. They planned this together (in my opinion). Jac and Mel are planting the “seeds” Caro/Kathy are telling the viewers to read between the lines (the seeds!) watering the garden. They really believe the viewers are ignorant.

Its master manipulation. They are calculating while Teresa seems to just be herself without manipulating , backstabbing or talking bad about others. She is running circles around them!

Does anyone know when Teresa made this comment about Mel? Was it recent or an old comment like the 25k loan?
