The mid-season finale of Total Divas didn’t prompt a spike in the ratings, drawing 1.03 million viewers on Sunday night according to TV by the Numbers.
This is down from last week’s 1.09 rating, which itself was the lowest rated episode of the season. The episode did retain the 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demo, which is definitely a positive.
Another positive? The viewers stuck around for the After Party, which drew 939,000 viewers and another 0.5 in the demo.
Like last week’s episode, these decreased numbers can be attributed to the lack of a Keeping Up With the Kardashians lead-in and a packed NFL Sunday night. In addition to that competition, of course, was the final hour of WWE’s Night of Champions Pay-Per-View.
It isn’t a triumphant way to end the season, but it does give E! some options to consider when building the schedule for Total Divas‘s return in November, comparing the early season successes to these last two disappointing weeks.
