It looks like Total Divas couldn’t entirely fight off competition from the NFL’s first Sunday back on the gridiron.
Sunday’s episode, titled A Leg Up, was the lowest rated outing this season according to TV By the Numbers, reaching 1.09 million viewers and earning a 0.5 rating in the 18-49 demo.
This is down considerably from last week’s episode, which earned 1.52 million viewers and a 0.8 in the demo.
After a season of steadily rising numbers, a dip isn’t entirely unexpected. The first full night of NFL games probably played heavily in the lower numbers, especially that dip in the coveted 18-49 demographic. Also, the usual Total Divas lead-in Keeping Up With the Kardashians took the week off, which may have played a role in the numbers’ dip.
The heat is on for Total Divas to deliver in its mid-season finale this Sunday. It will have more NFL games and WWE’s Night of Champions to contend with, but really, who could resist a wedding episode?
Do you think the Total Divas ratings will rebound?
