Sunday's Desperate Housewives Pulled In Its Lowest Ratings EVER.

desperate-housewives-pulls-in-lowest-ratings-ever

Wow! Is it the beginning of the end for Desperate Housewives?

The popular ABC drama had its lowest ratings in the history of the series this past Sunday, falling below 10 million viewers to 8.83 for the FIRST TIME ever, and coming in third, behind the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards and Celebrity Apprentice!

Ouch! This time last year, the numbers were around 10.62 million, and THAT then was the lowest they'd ever been!

Oh well! We don't think they have too much to worry about, as the show's secured a spot on ABC until 2013!

But maybe it's time to kick it in to high gear with a game-changer to boost those ratings, guys!

Maybe an unexpected pregnancy? Another plane crash? OR DEATH?! We'd be innerested to see what happens!

    SORRY TO SAY BUT THAT SHOWS 15 MINUTES HAVE BEEN UP FOR AWHILE NOW…
    IT'S TIME FOR THOSE GIRLS TO START SAVING THEY'RE MONEY BECAUSE THAT'S IT…..

    Probably time to bow out gracefully……

    I think the show has run it's course and it's time to end it. Bree is boring as hell and should start drinking again, at least she did some crazy stuff then, the Tom & Lynette storyline on the job offer, dumb and what dealer is going to let someone take out a car like that for hours, NOT, Susan is so sickening I could puke, her character is so annoying and nothing much with Gabby. Thank God she got rid of that ugly ass doll. Stupid, stupid, stupid. My brain deserves to watch better shows.

    End it now. It's gotten terrible.

    NO ONE COULD COMPETE WITH CELEBRITY APPRENTICE THIS SEASON..IT,S GOT THE MEN&WOMEN WATCHING….I HAD TO PAUSE HOUSEWIVES FOR AWHILE MYSELF…..

    DHW is, and will always be, one of my favorite shows, but it has been pretty lame lately. I think I just look forward to it now because I've been looking forward to it every Sunday for the last 6 years or so. I do think their 3 week long hiatus didn't help ratings though. Everyone probably just assumed it would be another repeat this week.

    The inconsistency is killing the show. It's on…it's a repeat…some other show in it's time slot. Might as well find something else to watch.

    this season is not the best, there's no mystery, however the low numbers on Sunday may be due to the long pause … maybe people forgot it was coming back.

    That's because for weeks there was no show and most of us ended up watching the drama on Celebrity Apprentice….note to networks - treat us viewers with regular shows and you are going to enjoy decent ratins - leave us wondering for weeks why there is no show and we say "bye bye"!

    I'm surprised to learn it's still on.

    This year there has been hiatuses for several shows during March. ABC seems to be the worst with the constant repeats. Modern Family has been just as bad. One new episode then two weeks of repeats. You never know when a new episode will air. If ABC keeps this up, it'll be the new NBC. Housewives has been one of the strongest shows on the channel's lineup for years now.

    The reason the show has low ratings is because it's never on. I mean how do you start a season without a substantial amount of time to tape the last shows. This has been happening with the other seasons as well. I loved the show, but got sick of tuning in and its a repeat in the middle of the new season. I never saw this before in my life with any other program I watch. Only with desperate housewives. You lose interest when this happens and just forget about the whole show, no matter how good it was. Personally I think its Mark Cherrys fault. He has a huge ego and bad temper and the cast crumbles in front of him. They don't want to piss him off because he'll kill em off. It's so obvious how fake they are in front of him and how petrified. He seems like a passive aggressive manipulative guy. I mean makes sense, how else can you always come up with vindictive and juicy storylines. credit the writers as well too but hes the main squeeze. Well haven't been tuning in for a while and will not anytime soon. Maybe I'll wait for the DVD. At least no interupptions.

    I love desperate housewives and all.. but the plot is starting to become repeatitive and they just keep adding in new characters and its almost too much to keep up with. Last episode really lack drama and excitement.. hopefully this turns around- would hate to see this go off the air.

    The show sucks bad now.
    I only watch it once in awhile when there is nothing else on TV on Sunday.
    Vanessa Williams is terrible.

    Re: buggadaboo – Sadly I agree with you :(



  17. 17

    I stopped watching when they killed off Edie.
    It's a snore fest that is really hard to watch.



  18. 18

    I can almost garuntee thats not because people didnt want to watch, its because people didnt know it was on. When no other sunday shows are new, you just assume none are. I didnt know it was on this past sunday till it popped up on my DVR.



  19. 19

    I didn't know the show was still on the air.. LOL

    With all the technology around, there has to be a way to count all the shows DVR'D. I can count at least 20 people in my area that recorded it while we were either out or watching another show. We discuss it all the time so I know it's being watched. All of this technology and they can't figure this part out.



  21. 21

    It's probably because no one knew when it was going to be on…



  22. 22

    I thought that show had been cancelled… weird….
