The Power Of Vanessa Williams! Housewives Premieres To Big Ratings!

| Filed under: TV News


This could turn out to be quite the year for Desperate Housewives!

Last night, ABC's long running melodrama hit a peak in the ratings that they haven't seen in quite awhile! The seventh season premiere opened in second place during their time slot, brining in 9.2 million viewers! That's up over a million viewers from last season and it out delivered its lead-in, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, but a whopping 46%!


Should hired Vanessa Williams sooner! Could have saved Wisteria Lane from that lame plane stunt last season.

    I love Vanessa Williams, but if she was the only reason for the big ratings, Ugly Betty wouldn't have ever been cancelled. Her new character is Willamina-esque, but not quite as good in my opinion

    Yay Vanessa! Love's her! and she is the reason why I'm watching Desperate Housewives again. ;)

    Vanessa Williams is the only woman you could bring back that show - SAVE THE SHOW - Don't pull a Jennifer Aniston on Cougar Town - Be real. Use your talent, Vanessa. We - Your fans - Have faith in you.

    Now see, Jennifer Aniston; This is Vanessa Williams we are talking about. Vanessa Williams is a Cougar. Aniston is no Cougar. Aniston belongs backstage with Mayer. Someplace backstage where we don't have to see her.

    Where do you get your information? It got 12.83 million viewers, which is DOWN from 13.64 million last season. If it had got 9.2 million viewers that would have been the worst ratings the series had ever gotten for an episode. Your a completer moron!

    i doubt she was the reason..well actually ahah i did watch it because of her, but i am a fan of the show i just didn't know if i really wanted to see the premier yesterday over the Event. Seeing Mrs. William was a plus. She is a cougar…J-aniston not so much :(

    according to Variety, the show posted about 12.5. Where do you get your info? The street? I never believe anything I read here anymore.

    I have a feeling DH is going back to its roots this season. I predict a great season and Emmy nominations for Marcia Cross and Vanessa.

    those numbers are still WAY down from DH's glory days - and pretty much in line with the numbers from the final two seasons of Lost, which you declared dead & a failure. so which is it?

    I watched and was very disappointed. Didn't like the show at all. Was expecting alot more. don't like Vanessa at all. Susan is very annoying so far. The baby couldn't look any more fake than it did. Bree is old enough to be Brian's mother so that is weird and Paul Young is back oh boy that is a bore, then there's gabby and the kid thing. Tell her already for pete sake. She don't like the kid anyways cuz she's fat.
