[QUOTE=Old Friend;240195]The Korean your friends stink if they picking at Leroy like they are. Like Black people are the only garbage men.... Anyway, I don't think the show sucks as Brooklyn, New Orleans and some episodes of DC were pretty interesting but. I hated Cancun though. It bored me.[/QUOTE] No, they're saying that the one black male would be a garbage man. Just saying that MTV never promotes black positively.
[QUOTE=TheKorean;240208]No, they're saying that the one black male would be a garbage man. Just saying that MTV never promotes black positively.[/QUOTE] I don't see being a garbage man is a negative, and it isn't like the white folks on MTV are really the cat's pajamas--Jersey Shore/Teen Mom/16 & Pregnant are not painting people in a good light. That said, the aftershow online is pretty good if you can weather the 16,000 commercials in the 14 minutes or so of footage. Def better than previous aftershows or whatever it is they call those things.
The bgc club is on OYXGEN not everyone has that channel in all fairness so maybe if the BGC CLUB was on mtv or vh1 it would have higher ratings but hopefully the ratings for rw gets better!
[QUOTE=TheKorean;240191] And African Americans or Asians just aren't drawn to the Real World because they're not represented well. Every Black person I know watches BGC, and barely any watch RW. Some of my friends felt a certain way about the only black guy on the cast name being "Leroy, the garbage man".[/QUOTE] Since when has BGC casted anything but stereotypical black women? and who was the last Asian American they casted?

I don't know about you all but where I come from (and what I've heard), "garbage men" actually make quite a decent wage. Plus benefits, and I could be wrong, but there may be a union as well. Either way, its certainly nothing to be ashamed of, or to be thought of in a "negative light".
Why are he people that say this show sucks still watching? Obviously you like something about it if you are still watching and commenting on it.
[quote]Chances are this show won't get renewed. 1.7 is terrible ratings for anyone who knows something about TV. Anything under 2-3 million are considered bad.[/quote] You have to take into consideration the differences between network and cable. Obviously a show like Survivor, The Bachelor or The Amazing Race is going to have higher ratings because everyone gets ABC and CBS. Not everyone has cable. And now, with the amount of reruns MTV does and the fact that they post full episodes online, episode premiere ratings will fall substantially. Now, if a show is pulling less than a million viewers on premiere night, you know it's in trouble (see: Skins, though I doubt they're canceling that).
They have renewed freaking Life as Liz that barely ever crosses a million.
[QUOTE=SeanDaniel;240268]They have renewed freaking Life as Liz that barely ever crosses a million.[/QUOTE] lmao, i totally agree. And what about rj berger?
[QUOTE=SeanDaniel;240268]They have renewed freaking Life as Liz that barely ever crosses a million.[/QUOTE] Those kinds of shows are pennies compared to the cost of production for TRW. Getting a bunch no-name kids LARPing for 10 episodes would be a lot cheaper than renting out lavish mansions and suites.
You have to add in the fact about the episodes being online like the person who stated it above, plus the billion reruns they air have to raise it up by a good amount. I hope this stays only to continue to be a feeder for RW/RR challenges
[QUOTE=cystic;240271]Those kinds of shows are pennies compared to the cost of production for TRW. Getting a bunch no-name kids LARPing for 10 episodes would be a lot cheaper than renting out lavish mansions and suites.[/QUOTE] I have never actually heard a number for how much a season of RW costs, but I am sure product placement helps and the series brings in consistent advertising campaigns whereas these other cheap series do not. In addition, the RW casts seem to be draw for events for MTV's target demo that adds a guerrilla marketing pick up for the network. Canceling RW would effectively cancel the Challenges, but not vice versa. The Challenges have to be much more expensive to produce from my perspective, and I would expect them to go first.
[QUOTE=journalme;240223]Since when has BGC casted anything but stereotypical black women? and who was the last Asian American they casted?[/QUOTE] Ashley from this season was not the stereotypical Angry black woman. And the difference in those shows & the Real World is they have constant drama. The RW has been getting killed ratings wise the past 5 years from VH1 shows because people like watching drama. The Real World simply does not provide quality drama anymore.

[QUOTE=yankeegurl93;240075]NOLA 2: 1.2 million DC - 1.9 million Cancun - 1.4 million Brooklyn - 2.3 million For the premiere episode.[/QUOTE] Seems strange that they've gone for the party drama type show when the more laid back Brooklyn and DC got better ratings.
[QUOTE=lurks;240367]Seems strange that they've gone for the party drama type show when the more laid back Brooklyn and DC got better ratings.[/QUOTE] I'm usually not interested in Real World, but I actually watched it and thought that was a pretty good episode.
[QUOTE=cryssy19;240369]I'm usually not interested in Real World, but I actually watched it and thought that was a pretty good episode.[/QUOTE] Didn't mean to say it's bad just wondered on the direction going by past ratings. I always thought they should alternate one season with the party/drama and one more laid back gives a bit of variety.
[QUOTE=lurks;240367]Seems strange that they've gone for the party drama type show when the more laid back Brooklyn and DC got better ratings.[/QUOTE] DC had good premiere ratings, but the ratings sucked hardcore afterwards. Brooklyn had a good premiere because of all the hype surrounding Katelynn. NOLA started off slow, but I believe it showed growth throughout the first 6-7 episodes.

It's a shame I really liked Brooklyn and wasn't that keen on NOLA but as I say would be nice if they could mix it up a bit and have a bit of both.
I really think people look at Brooklyn with blinders on. That season aired right after the big recession hit and there were a ton of young people suddenly out of work or having to cut way back on their budgets so they watched more TV IMO. I really don't recall even hearing that a transgendered person was on the show until the first episode aired. MTV also kept that show in much heavier rotation. Seemed like it came on at least twice a day and Jersey Shore had not come along yet. While Vegas is being marketed as a party season, my guess is that in 13 weeks I will be saying it was a much more serious season and with a better quality cast than any season I have ever seen, regardless of the ratings.

[QUOTE=SPK713;240401]Yeah D.C. has the lowest ratings this series has ever seen.[/QUOTE] And deservedly so.....
[QUOTE=SeanDaniel;240402]And deservedly so.....[/QUOTE] Yeah, I agree
[QUOTE=mph922;240197]I... don't think that's true. I'm not saying the ratings are stellar or that I know anything about ratings, but I really don't think anything under 2 million is considered bad, especially for a cable show. You simply can't compare The Jersey Shore to The Real World. Jersey Shore is a such a phenomenon that you just simply cannot make the comparison in my opinion. It's like comparing High School Musical to some other random Disney Channel movie. TRW has been on for almost 20 years, and no it's not getting the ratings it used to get but I don't think that these ratings are something to sneeze at. [B]I mean, hell, these ratings are better than ratings that shows on network TV are pulling, well mainly the CW... [/B] But as I said, I am not pretending to be a ratings genius. I just think the Jersey Shore comparisons are a little unfair. Where are the other reality shows pulling those numbers?[/QUOTE] The Vampire Dairies which is on CW gets really good ratings, I'm not sure about the others but they probably get better ratings than the RW. Regardless of what the ratings are, I think the show is just done for. Stick a fork in it.
In my honest opinoin people watch JS not only for the debauchery but to follow the characters its the same people had JS been different people all 4 seasons I think it would have lost momentum. BGC is promised drama from the jump cause it is 7 girls that think there hardcore so fights are promised. Unfortunally RW it changes every season and they have beaten almost every single story possible down with a stick like a rememeber in 90s a gay roomate was taboo now it's almost weird for a roomates not be gay.They also need to focus on the good stories more for instance Brooklyn-Katelynne, Ayiia-Cutting,Jasmine-Drinking,Bronne,DC Josh and Erika past,Nola Ryan/Preston/Jemmye past. I feel dedicating an episode or 2 to someone backstory then have them rotate with other castmemebers is hurting the show ...Sorry for the rant.The Real World is done and that's it take the favorites put them on challenges and try to salvage the disater created.

When I think of DC, all I think of it Ty being an *** all the time. When I think Cancun, I think Ayiia being psycho all the time; when I think NOLA, I think Jemmye (Sp?) being drunk and pouty. There were a lot of good backstories that never really got shown amongst those casts. JS got a huge bump when The Situation and Snookie became pop-culture allusions.
At first for this season I thought Adam was goign to boost MTVs ratings. But I really think that Michael Ross is going to be the saving grace for thsi show. They had him on the view and he is just a hillarious and a nice relatable guy. I think the ratings will go up and expecting them to immediately be over 2.5 million after a few ****** seasons was a bit ambitious.

I don't get him alone, but he and Dustin make an interesting odd-friendship early on though that apparently ended.
[QUOTE=SeanDaniel;240268]They have renewed freaking Life as Liz that barely ever crosses a million.[/QUOTE] I'm so happy this show has been renewed. It is a good series and it has a unique filming style. It's styled between the hills, true life, and a slow paced low key sitcom. This show has charm. I loved the first season. And I love catching the new episodes. Go #nerdherd. And it's a scripted show. And scripted dramas are usually expected to carry fewer viewers than reality shows. [QUOTE=SPK713;240206]No, but its pretty clear that the show is staying. Jersey Shore is dying, MTV knows this, season 4 is the last season. Without Teen Mom, MTV pulls in crap ratings. They wouldn't axe a show that's this old in age and still pulling in good/decent ratings.[/QUOTE] How can you even say JS is dying. Those goofballs are making a killing for the network. The network will reuse those kids for spinoffs. Just like VH1 did with the flavor flav franchise until it just died. [QUOTE=xajmx90;240218]The bgc club is on OYXGEN not everyone has that channel in all fairness so maybe if the BGC CLUB was on mtv or vh1 it would have higher ratings but hopefully the ratings for rw gets better![/QUOTE] It def would. I didn't have oxygen at one point. Love that show. [QUOTE=TheKorean;240191] And African Americans or Asians just aren't drawn to the Real World because they're not represented well.

Plus you can tell how bored the cast is getting, the show is going to run itself into the ground as it becomes more boring. It's going to die eventually.
