Southern Charm: Ratings Dip Again

S.C. REALITY SHOW DRAWS 855,000 VIEWER THIS WEEK … 

|| By FITSNEWS || This week’s episode of Bravo TV’s Southern Charm – the South Carolina-based reality television show starring former state treasurer Thomas Ravenel – drew only 855,000 viewers.  That’s the lowest total of the show’s new season, according to the website TV by the Numbers.

Last week‘s episode drew 869,000 viewers.

Southern Charm eclipsed the one million mark for viewers four times during its inaugural, ten-episode 2014 season – but it has yet to hit that mark once through six episodes this year.

Even with all sorts of real-life drama surrounding it …

Obviously we’re not talking about a spectacular flameout here – like the one which befell Ravenel’s 2014 political comeback – but we are looking at a gradual decline in viewership.  And these numbers – along with the unpredictability of the show’s star – raise the question of whether Bravo will renew the show for a third season.

Southern Charm has been less than kind to the 52-year-old Ravenel this season … although the show’s editors appear to be doing everything they can to boost the image of his 23-year-old baby momma, Kathryn Dennis.
