Goodbye, Real World. This is definitely the last season.
I think it will pick up on the 3rd episode. A lot of people want to see Nia
But like someone already stated, they didn't even say that Nia WASN'T going to be in the first episode. Yeah, if you have a small amount of brain power, you can figure out that someone has to leave for her to enter but Real World viewers aren't the smartest bunch lately. "Why does it say 7 strangers? I count 8. Where's the black chick? I know I saw a black chick in the trailer."
Lmao. Some people were saying "Where's the drama?" 30 minutes into the episode. Gosh....
"it's higher than Washington Heights too lol." That's because mtv audiences wanted to watch a bunch of white kids act stupid on Buckwild when Washington Heights was amazing especially the season finale. I loved that scene when Frankie said her goodbyes to Ludwin.
I'm just sad to this all very possibly come to an end. I will always hope for a bounce back but it looks like things are just going under. Small respite is when it's all said and done maybe they will sell the series to Netflix and we can watch the all the old seasons hopefully including RR. And then, maybe in 5-10 years, someone will go "Hey, let's bring that Real World/Road Rules/Challenge" show back and it will get a second life.
[QUOTE=Calinks;338796]Sad thing is, they actually put promotion into this season too.[/QUOTE]They gave it the same publicity that Vegas 2 received and it fell flat. I knew when I didn't see it trending that the ratings were gonna suck. Alot of other shows may trend, but still get bad ratings. The RW and the challenge don't tend to work like that. When you see it's trending worldwide it usually means folks are watching. If the ratings don't pick up, we're gonna look back at SD2 being the downfall of the RW.
Thanks Frank Sweeney.
[QUOTE=jhl182;338835]Thanks Frank Sweeney.[/QUOTE]Had Portland aired after Vegas, we wouldn't have this problem. San Diego had an amazing rating the first episode because it followed Vegas. I don't care what anyone says, SD as a whole was the knife that killed Real World.
^ Yep....
[QUOTE=Calinks;338829]And then, maybe in 5-10 years, someone will go "Hey, let's bring that Real World/Road Rules/Challenge" show back and it will get a second life.[/QUOTE] More like in the year 3000 when the Real World takes it's seven strangers to The Sun.
At this point idk what can be done to save RW. But maybe the fighting and chaos turned people off even more? that seems to be a constant never ending complaint, how the show went from a show of substance to a Jersey Shore rip off... but that's a whole nother issue. Hopefully MTV won't give up on promoting it and giving it re-runs although I wouldn't be surprised if they do.
TRW has never been a Jersey Shore rip off. Where'd you get that notion?
Not the show itself, that wouldn't be possible since RW started way before JS but I saw on imdb and twitter people were saying this season was trying too hard to be like Jersey Shore.

Had to be the IMDB trolls to call it a JS ripoff. They are seriously in denial much less tripping.
Like Alexndra Govere from San diego 2 said on her Spreet cast yesterday, the first episode ratings also depend on the season before. That she thinks that they are going to go up. for example : For example san diego 2 premiere ratings were good thanks to vegas being a good season. while st.thomas was bad because it came after a bad season
I watched the premier and won't be watching further. The show sucked, nothing was entertaining at all. The worst part was how annoying and scummy Jordan is. I also dislike Anastasia but she's not as bad as Jordan. Whoever said that this cast was so good looking was wrong about the females. Averey is the only particularly attractive female and it won't change when Nia gets there. Joi is the least attractive of the four, and when Nia comes she will also be the least attractive of the four.

I don't think it's any guarantee the ratings get better.

[QUOTE=rachel_28;338880]Is it me or are the females getting less and less attractive each season!![/QUOTE] Are you kidding this is the best looking set of females in years, since DC I'd say. As for the men, there way a head of St Thomas but nothing above average.

The fans and viewers that are left are so inconsistent too. TRW gives you substance or drama-free then it's viewed as boring, they give you entertainment then it's viewed as too much/rip-off/etc.People complain about every little thing. Also, why can't people comprehend that Nia is obviously a replacement and coming later in the season if she's not on the first episode? It's really not that hard.... what world are we living in.

I don't genuinely understand why anyone comments about people's attractiveness on TV as if it's a make-or-break deal for viewership. I mean do people really tune into the show just to watch beautiful people do mundane things? And people wonder why BMP keeps casting people who are aspiring models. I think Nia said it best on Alexandra's spreecast. People tune into the Kardashian show and don't care about the "stupid ****" they say, as long as people get to [I]look[/I] at them talk on TV. I think people are tuning into the wrong show if they're expecting a soap opera or runway show. The quality of TRW has declined, yes, but not for the reasons people keep complaining about.
