VH1 Ratings: 2014


The beginning of the new year of course means the beginning of a new post. While the 2013 list has yet to be completed (It will be once the five new episodes for Black Ink Crew conclude for the season) that doesn't mean I should wait to begin the new list. As I have been doing with last year's list, I will update it after I see numbers for these shows which typically will occur twice per week but definitely on Tuesdays. Also following last year's format, I will make notes where they are necessary and all specials will go at the bottom of the post [Final Update: 4/14/15].

Note 1 (3/11/14): While Black Ink Crew is slated to return on March 31st, VH1 has specifically stated that the order will only be for 5 episodes and will be designated as season 2 episodes. While I will put the 2014 numbers for the show here, I will also put them in the 2013 post (Link above) with the rest of the season 2 numbers. Also I will not include these numbers as a separate average for 2014. The 5 episodes will be counted with the previously aired season 2 episodes and therefore will be reflected in the VH1 2013 Season Average post.

Note 2 (3/15/14): Although VH1 has ordered several "The Fabulous Life of..." specials, I don't expect to put the ratings for every one of them here. The specials are typically low rated and are not easily found through my usual sources so only the ones that I have seen definitive ratings for will be placed here.

Note 3 (4/29/14): VH1 has confirmed that season 4 of T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle will be split into two halves. While I am not sure when the first half of episodes will conclude, VH1 has announced that the second half of the show will return in mid-August.

Note 4 (6/24/14): There is a missing episode from the I Love the 2000's specials (Specifically 2006) that have been airing over the last week. It is safe to assume the missing episode received less than 450,000 viewers.

Note 5 (12/31/14): As I did last year, I will continue to bump this post weekly until all of the 5 currently airing shows on this list conclude their seasons. I will not begin the 2015 list until the first show premieres (which should be January 7th).

Why no bye Felicia ratings for episodes 5 and 6?

Silverstar2154 said...

The source I check for these low rated shows never posted those numbers (though oddly posts the numbers for Suave Says). The main source I look to never have numbers for the shows that don't air on Mondays (other than Mob Wives) because the numbers are just too low to make the list and the main source posts the top 100 cable shows of the day so that tells you something.

That must be the case across the board. I also check showbuzzdaily and they don't post bye Felicia either, but post very low rated shows from all networks. Is that an industry thing that networks won't publish shows under a certain number?

Silverstar2154 said...

I do know you can ask the guy at Showbuzzdaily for numbers and he will answer within a couple of hours but he will only answer for the episode that aired on that particular day and he tries to add the more requested shows with those group of shows at the bottom (hence why I'm about to post the last 4 episodes of Sorority Sisters).

From what I've seen over the years, websites are bound by Nielsen to not post the entire list of ratings they receive. TVBTN negotiated to post the top 100 daily cable shows but of course their list is filtered by the top shows amongst the 18-49 demo and it does include movies and reruns (in their early days they could only post the top 25 cable shows of the entire week so they have come a long way). The other sites that post cable numbers (and there aren't too many of them) typically can't post anymore than 40 shows per day (and that's high) so they try their best to take out the reruns but still a lot of these lower rated shows fall through the cracks.
