[QUOTE=WallyT09;338904]I would rather watch 16 and pregnant than ridiculousness[/QUOTE] Ridiculousness is hilarious though [QUOTE=YvanEhtNioj;338975]Dang..so the cut Joi down to only 1 full episode? Next week Marlon also talks about having sex with a man, so maybe that will bring ratings up since there are already articles about it online[/QUOTE] Nia has said on Twitter that she's coming during the 3rd episode. It sucks that Joi is leaving though, she's been getting a lot of positive feedback, a lot of people are probably gonna be pissed and announce that "they aren't watching anymore" when she leaves.
[QUOTE=molds13;338984]Being ******** hurts his chances of getting a job? That's illegal in almost half of the United States.[/QUOTE] Pretty sure is illegal in all the states yet it still happens in 50/50 of them.
[QUOTE=iRyan;338994]I'm honestly SHOCKED by this. The premiere had so much promotion going for it, I don't understand how it could possibly do so bad? I can't help but simply attribute it to the fact that the past two seasons were pretty lackluster and made people lose interest. Hopefully ratings can pick up.[/QUOTE] When the show is only promoted inside its own tiny MTV bubble, why would you think the promotion of it would be successful? To me, the show should have been marketed strongly to the former challenge, RW and RR audiences who have left as they became older and their interest changed, or became bored, ambivalent or disgusted with MTV.
Would people really be pissed about Joi leaving? This is just my opinion, but watching the premiere it seemed obvious that they weren't putting any focus on her since she'll be gone soon anyway. Maybe some did like her, but honestly I didn't see near enough of her to form an opinion.
[QUOTE=KevinW;338991]Vegas also worked because collectively the cast had chemistry and it didn't seem forced like San Diego, St. Thomas and I'm not sure about Portland it's too early to tell. That season didn't really need to rely on fights to get viewers, it just had really good story lines along with a great cast and that's something that every season since then has been lacking.[/QUOTE] I agree 100%....
From that Youtube post... This kinda disgusts me: [QUOTE]Simsreailtytv 4 hours ago the real world should be more like bgc[/QUOTE] [QUOTE]worddtoyuremothhaa 17 hours ago Just know she is the only reason I'm watching this season lol. Real World is so played out now, and she definitely bringing something that has been missing in this show. Hope she doesn't disappoint![/QUOTE] [QUOTE]Kayla Lasha 16 hours ago Finally they put a pretty black girl on the show I'm totally going to watch this season[/QUOTE] [QUOTE]SimsBGCTV 19 hours ago Queen Nia. <3 This Had The BGC Vibe Like Dayummm Nia Bomb Af :D <3[/QUOTE] But whatevers gonna potentially get a few more viewers I'll support. *shrugs*
I've seen people tweet similar comments as well. Hopefully she does indeed, bring the ratings.
Any talk of the show being renewed or cancelled at this point would obviously be speculation, but I would like to think even if the ratings remain below average all season the show will be back but admittedly I just have an optimistic viewpoint on it. I know it's been used over and over to the point of it being dragged trough the dirt but in reality MTV does not have multiple blockbuster hit shows on it's current resume. Even if the show does not do stellar, to me, it's not as if there are 10 other shows that are going to be blowing Portland out of the water to the point of the show not having a place or an available spot on the network. If the show is cancelled it was a fun ride and unfortunately it was just meant to be. In saying this, however, I would hope we could try to refrain on the "sky is falling" mentality until the season is actually finished out and we have cold hard facts in front of us. Here's hoping the ratings do improve over the season and we can be enjoying future seasons of this (mostly) great program.

If the Real World was promoted on Lifetime, Oxygen, VH1 and MTV I guarantee the premiere would have gotten like 2 or 3 million viewers.

[QUOTE=ILoveRW;339134]Sorry that sentence was meant to read: "Pretty sure murder is illegal in all the states yet it still happens in 50/50 of them."[/QUOTE] No 50/50 - murder happens in every state.
[QUOTE=molds13;339148]No 50/50 - murder happens in every state.[/QUOTE] 50/50 ie 50 out of 50
[QUOTE=ILoveRW;339156]50/50 ie 50 out of 50[/QUOTE]Those are not necessarilly the same thing...
Anyway I'm super confusing. Mainly because I can't write in full sentence, but what I'm trying to say is just because it is illegal does mean it doesn't happen
[QUOTE=theman23;339131]If the Real World was promoted on Lifetime, Oxygen, VH1 and MTV I guarantee the premiere would have gotten like 2 or 3 million viewers.[/QUOTE] Yea, cause that will happen...

[QUOTE=Nostalgic;339218]Allowed? Since when?[/QUOTE] Since always? I don't know. They've never outlawed discrimination based on sexual orientation. Some states are still slow on the progressive uptake, namely Texas, where Marlon is from.
[QUOTE=JodyBreeze;338963] You can't have the success that Vegas 2 had and follow it up with SD2. Which was horrendous all the way around.[/QUOTE] Well said.
[QUOTE=molds13;339222]Since always? I don't know. They've never outlawed discrimination based on sexual orientation. Some states are still slow on the progressive uptake, namely Texas, where Marlon is from.[/QUOTE] I misunderstood you then. I thought you were getting at something else, Molds. LOL. Faux pas.
[QUOTE=molds13;338984]Being ******** hurts his chances of getting a job? That's illegal in almost half of the United States.[/QUOTE] Technically I meant to say and being on TRW. Yes, it's discrimination but employers are already very reluctant with employing these guys from reality television. He could be lying but I don't necessarily consider Marlon ********. Though it depends on how many times and what he did with said individual.
[QUOTE=Aramm;339025]Would people really be pissed about Joi leaving? This is just my opinion, but watching the premiere it seemed obvious that they weren't putting any focus on her since she'll be gone soon anyway. Maybe some did like her, but honestly I didn't see near enough of her to form an opinion.[/QUOTE] Yes. After I saw her on the list back when Molds first did her page I was all for Joi and when I heard she left and till this day am upset. Pissed would be a strong word.
[QUOTE=Nostalgic;339228]Technically I meant to say and being on TRW. Yes, it's discrimination but employers are already very reluctant with employing these guys from reality television.[/QUOTE] That part I definitely agree with. I don't think some people realize how much being on reality television kills their chances at certain careers. No one wants to see someone with anger issues, or someone who drinks far too much, or someone who has both. There is likely a reason many MTV personalities do not have jobs beyond bartending, waitressing and doing tours - and those who do have moved on from their stints on television.
[QUOTE=Nostalgic;339215]Yea, cause that will happen...[/QUOTE] they can make it happen because Bunim/Murray is the producer of project runway which is on lifetime bad girls club which is oxygen and a vh1 show they have the power to do it
[QUOTE=theman23;339379]they can make it happen because Bunim/Murray is the producer of project runway which is on lifetime bad girls club which is oxygen and a vh1 show they have the power to do it[/QUOTE] Sorry, but producers don't have the power of promotion. That is entirely within the purview of the network (MTV)and not BMP. (You missed the Kardashians on "E," also produced by Jon Murray.) I'm not sure there is much overlap between Project Runway and RW, but there are certainly places within the VIACOM network family were reciprocal ad time should have been available.
