Soft Viewer Turnout for New Syndicated Talk Show

Sep 18, 2014  •  Post A Comment

A new syndicated talk show premiered Monday to viewer numbers that are being described as weak. TheWrap.com reports that “The Real,” which stars Tamar Braxton, Tamera Mowry-Housley, Loni Love, Jeannie Mai and Adrienne Bailon, drew what the article calls a “disheartening” 0.9 rating/3 share in primary run metered market averages.

That placed the show 40% below the numbers for its lead-in, the piece adds.

The show’s ratings were also 10 percent below the shows it replaced this year, the piece adds.

  1. The show has the wrong combination of women. The only ones I liked was Loni Love and Tamera Mowry. The other three were so uninteresting.

  2. This show is really hard to watch especially with the ghetto Tamar Braxtons’ distracting hand gestures. This show is aimed at a specific demographic and they probably aren’t watching because they are sitting at the welfare office adjusting their weaves as they wait for their food stamps/ebt cards.

    • You know a lot about that ,you must have been sitting there with that specific demographic fixing your weave and getting your food stamps / ebt card.

  3. I really love this show, however, I’m unable to watch it, not because I’m in a dfcs office like ignorant people might assume, but some of us have jobs during the hours in which the show is aired. Maybe they should have it to where it comes on again at night how the Wendy Williams show does. That would be perfect! !! Love ALL the girls! Keep up the good work ladies! !!!!!!

    • I think they do. They have reruns on BET but I’m not sure of the time.

  4. Give it a chance. I’m at work when the show comes but I records it and can’t wait to watch it when I come home and relax with a glass of wine. I love all the ladies. Tamar u know you r funny. I also watches the Braxton and Vincent and Tamar

  5. I’ve watched it several times now & I just can’t watch it any more. It is so loud & chaotic!!! The women are so NOT the right ones for a group talk show.

  6. Does television really need another multi-chick gabfest? Does anyone in television realize it is quite annoying to see another lousy chat-a-rama with “The” followed by a verb or adjective as a title?
