Mariah Carey Delivers Decent Ratings With New Show & Has ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ To Thank

The Numbers Reveal Mimi Needs “Reality” For “Docu-Series”

mariah-carey-ratings-tgj

Mariah Carey may be weary of calling her new E! series a “reality show,” but she ironically owes a debt of gratitude to one of the most popular titles in the genre – ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta.’

Find out why below…

‘Mariah’s World’ is housed on the E! network, which is part of the NBC Cable family. And, as has become customary with new launches, the “docu-series” was simultaneously broadcast on sister channel Bravo too.

Interestingly, the E! premiere only drew 0.63 million viewers (with a paltry 0.28 adults 18-49 rating).

Yet, the Bravo version – which aired immediately after ‘The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ performed considerably better. It commanded an audience of 1.24 million viewers (and a 0.50 adults 18-49 rating).

With Sunday’s RHOA watched by 2.74 million viewers, it’s arguable that Mimi benefitted in earnest from those who stuck around after getting their weekly fix of Kenya Moore and co.

While it’s inevitable that the numbers will be touted as a success, some critics are already weighing up the issues ahead.

See, although some see “viewers as viewers,” ‘Mariah’s World’ is used as a lead-in for fellow E! show’ ‘The Royals.’ So with Carey’s show performing so averagely on its home channel, it’s already having a negative effect on the ratings of the series that is scheduled after it.

What’s more, without the RHOA lead-in from next week, how well will the show stand on its own proverbial heels? Will Mariah’s “non-reality show” continue to need a reality show to sustain?

Time (and the numbers) will tell.

    I love Mariah but her show is really boring and the extra lighting on her is ridiculous and to show 2 diff guys she’s dating in one episode is not a good look….

    I doubt this show will be picked up or asked for another boring season

      Of course a beautiful voice. That said…that’s it. Don’t buy her music…wouldn’t go see her can’t stand to listen to her talk. For someone who used to be so sweet like and cute? Geez…she is just to much to stomach for me. I watched the first episode since the royals was coming on afterwards….So FAKE SO STAGED SO STUPID…SO TYPICAL SOOOOO BORING…..SO LAUGHABLE THAT SHE OUGHT TO BE EMBARRASSED…SOOO….OH WELL! WON’T WATCH AGAIN. TOODLES DAHLINGS..LMAO
      It’s a freaking joke!😂

    had she only had E! it would’ve been a total flop…..i was bored tho….i see ratings only declining. She should’ve just done a real tour documentary and released it to her fans.

      Thanks for this heads up! I wish she would stay away from blonde though, she looks a lot more stunning with black hair.

    I loved every second!!! Why the detailed account of why people watched it, why not a “congrats Mariah” your show was a ratings winner! Mariah Carey is one of the most entertaining funny Diva’s in the music business period, the show was brilliant! To be honest even if it didn’t do well, its an 8 part series that follows her behind the scenes on tour so it’s not as though it’s going to be looking for seasonal airings, this is for fans who wanted t see what MC was like behind the scenes of touring life!

      Because Samantha always has to attempt to discredit and disrespect Mariah. He hates Mariah, but doesn’t have the guts to admit it.

      No, its because the show was tired and meaningless, and the ratings show that.

    They already asked her to do a season two. But she won’t unless it’s a major event..

    It was very boring and one dimensional, much like Mariah’s persona in general. Not surprised it bombed in the ratings.

    This is a one time shot. Y’all are acting, and I’ll advising as is Mariah carey is a Kardashian or a housewive. She’s doing her docu series and peace out, That’s why it’s a docu-series and not a reality show. You really think she’s trying to get picked up for a second season? You’re an idiot if you do. She’s just doing this one time s*** for the heck of it- when ur legend you can do that.

    Combined on both networks it was watched by nearly 2 million people. That’s pretty good. She already said that she won’t do it again unless there’s a big event. It was funny & a good show for what it was..

    I think it should have only been a half hour. Truth is she needs more supporting cast to entertain viewers.

    Mariah F****** Carey,The Living Legend is an Icon. She is doing this for the fans, she’s not Kim Kardashian or Miley Cirus, with Mimi is about talento an trayectory, she’s one of the Greatest Artists Ever. She’s just having some fun and showing us lambs how her days are, is not like this is a New álbum or something.

    Respectcthe Legend, wankers.

    Mariah Carey has far too many unnecessary people around her. That’s why she isn’t able to go back to basics with her music because she has all this extra s*** like backup dancers and s*** managers. Just go back to basics with having a co-songwriter and some producers. You don’t need all this other garbage.
