Flipping Out wrapped up its sixth season Tuesday night, and although when it premiered we wrote that as it had “consistently averaged over 1m viewers which basically guarantees a renewal, that providing Season 6 manages greater than that, look for a 7th season in 2013“, however now that this season has aired, we’re not so sure a renewal is as easy as that.

Great Camera Deals

While the finale scored the second highest ratings of the season, 1,253,000 (18-49 demo 0.50), this season has limped along with the lowest 18 to 49 year old demo audience of its six seasons. Combining those ratings declines with Jenni Pulos now married and seemingly having legal spats with Jeff Lewis, and I’m not sure that Jeff & Zola (with Andrew) are enough to keep a seventh season sustained. The season average did exceed 1m viewers per episode; 1,141,333 to be exact, but just 601,583 of those were aged 18 to 49 and that’s a decline of almost 1/3 of viewers in that age group versus 2011’s season five.

Million Dollar Decorator could only manage its second 0.20 in the 18-49 demo as its ratings again dropped in their prior week. With viewership of 590,000 of which just 310,000 were aged 18 to 49, MDD is seeing declines even against its lowly freshman season. With a season to date average of 648,667 and only 335,667 of those in the 18-49 demographic, I’m afraid Bravo Media have another comparatively poorly rated show on their schedules.

At 11pm one of the stars of MDD, Martyn Lawrence-Bullard was joined by Joan Collins on Andy Cohen’s WWHL but for the third time this week, WWHL didn’t feature on the Cable Nightly Top 100 TV shows, and the way WWHL ratings on Wednesdays & Thursdays have been, Andy Cohen is on course to miss that ranking for the whole week, which would be one record Bravo Media would not want to hold.
