For the life of me I just can’t understand what Bravo Media are allowing to happen with the current Sunday night prime time programming. Despite the return of what has historically been their second highest rated show; The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Bravo Media have ceased being the top rated Reality Cable TV network on Sundays; a position they filled for most of 2014. While it’s true that RHoNJ has not been rating as high as its prior seasons, the main reason that Bravo TV’s Sunday Prime time average has fallen so much (they were ranked #5 last Sunday) is the weakness in the 10pm hour, and that’s all down to Game of Crowns. In the past when they’ve had a show that hasn’t managed to attract enough viewers Bravo Media have had no hesitation in pulling it from their schedules, and we saw that this time last year when Eat, Drink Love was moved after just three Sunday airings. EDL’s three Sunday 10pm episodes averaged 552,667 viewers in total and 302,000 of them aged between 18 & 49 years, and those levels were rightly judged by Bravo at the time as insufficient.

On this past Sunday at 10pm, just 458,000 viewers in total tuned in for the Game of Crown’s sixth episode and only 232,000 of them were aged between 18 and 49 years. While both those ratings numbers were higher than last week; by 9.31 & 8.41% respectively, they’re still terribly low for Prime Time. Incidentally The Real Housewives of Melbourne’s third episode that aired at Noon Sunday attracted 263,000 viewers in the P18-49 demo, significantly more than GoC managed at 10pm.

Through six episodes Game of Crowns is averaging just 298,667 viewers in the P18-49 demo and that’s lower than Eat, Drink Love managed last August in its Sunday airings, when it debuted following RHoNJ season 5, although EDL’s average fell further through 6 episodes after three had aired on Thursdays.

This week Bravo TV’s prime time P18-49 hourly average on Monday was 651,378 viewers which exceeded that of Sunday’s which could only manage to average 593,000 P18-49 between 8pm and 11pm and that’s the second week that Monday has rated higher than Sunday.

Game of Crowns has two episodes left to air in its freshman (and surely only season), where do you think Bravo TV should schedule them? Let us know in the comments below.

Full Season Summary

The Real Pageant Wives of Connecticut & Rhode Island AKA Game of Crowns was greenlit by Bravo Media in July 2013 and features six women who live in either Rhode Island or Connecticut and all compete in ‘Mrs’ pageants and have won titles such as Mrs. Nation USA, Mrs. America, Mrs. Rhode Island and Mrs. Connecticut with two of the cast competing against each other in the 2013 Mrs. America Pageant.. My favorite line from their press release was “In this world of boobs, botox and butt glue, the women pay top dollar for perfection at any price.” Butt Glue?????

This cast for the freshman season are:

Susanna Paliotta, Mrs. Nation USA 2013 and Mrs. Massachusetts Perfect Woman, is a pageant mom to her two daughters as well as a participant; Shelley Carbone, a wholesome mother of four, won the title of Mrs. Connecticut 2010 before going on to win the title of Mrs. America 2011; Lynne Diamante, who has a law degree and runs a multi-million dollar eyewear company, is a pageant lifer who was crowned Mrs. Rhode Island 20 years after winning Miss Rhode Island; Vanassa Sebastian, whose marriage into a casino dynasty funds her pageant addiction, was Mrs. Connecticut 2012; Leha Guilmette, Mrs. Rhode Island 2013, and competed in the 2013 Mrs. America Pageant and Lori-Ann Marchese, who holds the title of Mrs. Connecticut 2013, who faced-off against Leha in the 2013 Mrs. America Pageant.

After Kim Zolciak’s departure from The Real Housewives of Atlanta as well as Kari Wells from Married to Medicine , practically every show on Bravo Media seems to be monochromatic as far as their casting practices are concerned and it’s a shame that when casting Game of Crowns, Shed Media & Bravo Media weren’t able to take the opportunity of having a mixed race cast again.

Game of Crowns is produced by Shed Media US, the same company who produce The Real Housewives of New York City, It’s a Brad, Brad World and Styled to Rock and Pamela Healey and Lisa Shannon serve as Executive Producers.

    I think they should take off with Lori-Ann and do a world of fitness training and competitors. Those people are no joke in these competitions. And people aren’t gonna turn their noses up at vanity that comes with GOC.
