Baller Wives had a decent premiere showing. The same cannot be said for Real Housewives of Dallas. The people behind Nashville will at least have some time to work on the show and see if they can try to captivate a few more former fans to give next season a second chance.

VH1 Ratings: 2017

This got somewhat of a late start this year. It's a little unusual that the first show premiered 3 weeks into the year, but that is what a lot of December premieres will get you. As always, I will continue to bump last year's post until all of the Monday shows end their seasons (Updated: 8/15/17).

Note 1: To sort out any confusion, VH1 has dropped the LA from Basketball Wives (despite the show being filmed in Los Angeles). Technically, they consider the show to be season 6 of the original Miami version. However, since this season would be season 6 of either version, Miami was never added to the original name and the casts of both versions have now merged, it's probably much less confusing to refer to the show under its original name.

The premiere for Dance Moms is a bit low. It is my understanding that the show was forced to make changes this season just for the show to be viable (as in replacing the main star because the main star has to serve time in jail). Perhaps the network is prepared to weather the storm and deal with whatever comes their way (much like how Bravo did with Real Housewives of New Jersey a few years ago). I will also note that those finale numbers for Basketball Wives are higher than the last LA finale, but slightly lower than the last Miami finale. Overall, the show will probably get renewed because VH1 put the show in a position where it would be nearly impossible for the show to fail.

Another straight list this week. I guess I will offer a few passing thoughts on a couple of shows. Power looks strong and it is holding up well against Game of Thrones. Signed can't afford to lose too many viewers, but I don't think it is in the dead zone at the moment. Finally, I still believe that VH1 is looking to move Daytime Divas to another network rather than outright renewing or canceling the show.

10 Ratings Blurbs: 7/25/17 Edition

I had enough here to do a full post today. Probably won't do one next week. I think the premieres and finales are going to trickle in for the rest of the summer.

It is stunning and fascinating how a show beginning its seventh season with a specific end-date already set continues to set new ratings highs. While it isn't a ratings record for a cable show premiere/return this year, you have to give Game of Thrones a ton of props for absolutely delivering on all of the restless hype that built up since the end of last season. I am also impressed with how well the other Sunday shows (specifically Power and Real Housewives of Potomac) held up against it. There are quite a few pleased networks this week.

I suppose the biggest thing that sticks out to me on this list is that Big Brother seems to be off to a good start this season. I also think the RHOC opener seems a little low, but nowhere near close to being in alarming territory. It will probably inch up as the season wears on.
