Teresa Giudice – Watch What Happens Live – Ratings (Updated)

watch what happens live logo

Updated Tuesday October 1st with ratings for the original 9pm airing on Sunday, September 29th

The ratings are in for Sunday’s fifth season RHoNJ finale and they’re Breaking Bad for Bravo Media and the Housewives franchise overall. In a scheduling slight of hand Bravo TV set up that night’s television schedule to ensure that ratings for the ninety minute period from 8pm through 9.30pm were combined, and so the viewership for the Andy Cohen WWHL one-on-one sit down with Teresa Giudice are also included.

However, despite or because of the 90 minute scheduling, this year’s RHoNJ finale limped to just 2,502,000 viewers and that’s not only lower than this season’s premiere but is the lowest EVER finale for RHoNJ in its five year history.

The WWHL interview with Teresa aired again at 10:30pm and allowed its own rating period and in that time slot, an additional 908,000 (demo 0.4) tuned in.

Officially the record will show that Andy’s sit down special pulled 2,502,000 viewers and thus a record for Teresa in all her appearances but given that Bravo PR have not (yet?) issued any press release regarding these ratings, I don’t think even they will try to pull that one!

Original Article

In honor of tonight’s pre-taped and no doubt heavily legally vetted special episode of Watch What Happens Live which features Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice here’s a look back at the ratings for her WWHL appearances. Tonight’s special episode airing at 9pm, immediately following the finale of the fifth season of The Real Housewives pf New Jersey, will be Teresa’s twelfth appearance in Andy Cohen’s Studio.

Teresa’s first appearance was February, 11th, 2010, way back in the second series of WWHL when it aired on Monday & Thursday nights at midnight and on that occasion she appeared along side Jackie Collins and Kim Zolciak. That’s one episode where our ratings database is incomplete however five months later in June 2010. she appeared alongside Jacqueline Laurita and scored her highest ratings ever on WHHL, although she came close to that in August 2012, when she & Caroline Manzo sat down for a similar one-on-one special to tonight’s show.

And so that’s the number to beat; 2,400,000 viewers, and that is almost exactly the same average audience total; 2,401,471 that RHoNJ has been getting in the 8pm time slot this season and prior to tonight’s finale.

Who wants to take a guess and predictions for both the RHoNJ finale, as well as Teresa & Joe’s WWHL special?

* The WWHL ratings for S10E56 on 29-Sep-13 include the ratings for the RHoNJ Season 5 finale and as such might have inflated the estimated viewer totals 30 minute period that WWHL aired it’s special between 9pm and 9.30pm.

    Personally, if Caroline leaves, that is it for me! Joe and Teresa are a joke to the show…in denial of all their wrongdoings.

    What was the ratings last night?

    • Melissa, unless they’re earth shatteringly high and Bravo PR issue a press release later today, they won’t be published until around Noon tomorrow, Tuesday October 1st. As soon as we know them, we’ll update this article and report them. How high do you guess they’ll be?
