Since the cast was only under contract for 1 season, it is safe to bet that MTV itself was shocked by its success. It is actually kind of sad to watch some of these people acting the way they do as old as they are.
I think its BMP's fault for casting Leroy, the trash man. You mean to tell me there were no good looking (and Leroy isn't that good looking although has a nice body) black men that were interesting and had an educational background that auditioned? I feel as though the cast gets more dumb as the years go on.

[QUOTE=SPK713;240725]Actually we went from Will/d-bag/Brianna who were all drunken trash to the classy sophisticated Devyn Simone so it hasn't been all downhill :P[/QUOTE] I only know Will tangentially, "He who shall not be named" not at all, but have spent time with/around Brianna both in a social and work environment. I don't think either Will or Brianna are "trash." I long ago gave up painting any person I didn't know with the "not one of us" brush. To me, it's just another form of inappropriate stereotyping. Devyn is a very positive, life affirming person who does have a value set which may be "above" the norm, but I don't think she would agree that she is in any way better than the three you name, not even Mr. Unmentionable. She probably would simply say she is different and leave it at that.

I would rather chill with him than Ty or Preston.
[QUOTE=SeanDaniel;240736]I have no problem with Leroy, and do not find him uninteresting or uneducated based on the dailies. I would rather chill with him than Ty or Preston.[/QUOTE] agreed, I would also rather chill with Leroy aka Clinton Portis. Us Texans need to stick together.

Although I think you're wrong about not wanting to hang out with Preston, excluding the toothbrush incident. [QUOTE=RubenJay05;240722]I think its BMP's fault for casting Leroy, the trash man.

I also sure his occupation has nothing to do with his educational background and yes he does look good. Fix the gap of course first.

[QUOTE=SeanDaniel;240967]I would have punched that kid in the mouth long before the toothbrush incident....[/QUOTE] I agree, Preston was intolerable...
I am going to sneak in my ratings thoughts... I am not in the MTV demo. That is the problem. MTV took a hard dive to the low end of the larger "counted" television demo with The Real World and while they might have succeeded on other fronts, they failed on this one. Those older than 25 find their shows elsewhere. Maybe Bravo (winning!) or heck, it could be E! for all I know. In the end, MTV said - F*** our base. We'll grow a new one. The reality was different, with The Real World. They'll still have their one hit wonders and they will run them into the ground. No, literally I heard The Situation is now in the ground. Maybe I spoke too soon. Trump's people work methodically...
That will eventually bite MTV in the behind. IMO they went toward the low end because networks were shocked that so many kids had mad wads of walking around money they could market to. Since the recession, that demo's money is drying up and so will the marketing. They are in flux and will probably be behind the curve within a couple years.
Real World Las Vegas (MTV, 10pm) - 2.155 million viewers - 1.4/3 HH - 1.3/4 A18-49 - 2.5/8 W18-34 - 1.4/6 T12-17 Major increase! Who knows, maybe this season can cross 3 million. I think having the season in Las Vegas is seriously going to help with the ratings. Plus, its an interesting cast so far.
As for the whole BGC topic. That show is awesome and would do so much better ratings wise on either mtv or vh1. I wish that one of those channels would air reruns of the seasons to bring more awareness for the show.
Good ratings. My guess will be its top rating will be in the 2.3 range. It is a surprisingly interesting cast and they are not trying to compete with each other from the beginning like some of the more recent seasons have seen. I don't think anything short of an on-air death would get RW well into the 3M range ever again--the TV landscape has just changed too much from the early years.

Plus with Jersey Shore ending next week, we may lose some mtv viewers for a little while. I seriously think JS improves the ratings of most MTV shows.
Sweet! This is the episode they need to rerun so much, this was a huge step up from last weeks and it will definitely reel in more viewers.
Seems to be doing pretty well. #1 in its time slot among P12-34.
That's awesome! So far this show deserves it!
[QUOTE=producer88;241153]That's awesome! So far this show deserves it![/QUOTE] I agree. Much better than I expected so far regardless of whether the ratings go up or down.

I've only seen bits and pieces of RWLV because it was on while I was on the phone and ever since RWDC I just have no interest in the Real World anymore. Sucks because I used to love the show. The challenges I'll still watch but once again, just not as interested was before. And I honestly try to watch it but I just can't bring myself to pay attention, I always end up turning the TV off. For what its worth, I haven't watched the last five episodes of Jersey Shore either. I can't tell if I'm growing up or just bored.

[QUOTE=gamer73;240252]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] DITTO [QUOTE=SeanDaniel;240397]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] I think your right. This cast looks like it's ll about partying and hookups, but I can already see glimpses of some more serious issues coming out and being tackled. It looks to be a very promising season. I'm enjoying the show and the dailies. Some dailies are stupid but most of them provide quite a bit of insight. [QUOTE=RubenJay05;240722]I think its BMP's fault for casting Leroy, the trash man.

That's one of the major complaints industry has, they want better educated people coming in to the job market, not just degrees.
[B][U]Episode 3 Ratings[/U][/B] Real World (MTV, 10pm) - 2.157 million viewers - 1.4/3 HH - 1.3/4 A18-49 - 2.5/8 W18-34 - 1.5/6 T12-17 Pretty much no change from last week!
Still went up (barely) but that's good! Hopefully we can keep these numbers from week to week.
Those numbers are still solid. Evident why the series was picked up for two more seasons.
A 1.3 is huge. To put it in perspective, The Event pulled a 1.2 again this week. So you have a "dying" show on a cable network that bests a "feature" show on NBC. Obviously different night, different hour, but still. A 1.3 in the demo is a win. A big win for MTV.

[QUOTE=SPK713;241905]As big of a win as Jersey Shore? ;)[/QUOTE] Let me put this in perspective... What is a bigger, "win." A large natural gas field, or a pocket of oil? You are going to benefit from both. The problem with the pocket of oil is that it is gone in a few years, while you can extract a large gas field for decades. You will see immediate, large returns from the oil, but it is not sustainable. Jersey Shore is a fad. The Real World is an institution. Oil, gas.

There was Real World before and there will be one after. There could be a RW without the challenges but if RW ever ended without challenges, it would just end. (IMO)
