Opening with 3.8 million viewers to its name, the show’s seventh cycle spun into action on November 9th 2014 after fans learned cast member Porsha Williams had been demoted to “supporting” status to make way for friend to the stars Claudia Jordan.
Alas, subsequent episodes have seen its producer struggle to pull in figures close to the aforementioned number, receiving numbers that sit almost half as low as they did in its sixth season.
On January 11th, the episode named ‘Puerto Read-Co’ captured 3.53 million viewers only to see the showings that followed fall out of the 3 million range and end up at the 2.62 million mark by the time ‘The Countdown Begins’ aired on February 8th.
Things didn’t get much better in the week that followed, with ‘Hello Mr. Chocolate’ sweeping up 2.82 million, a number more akin to the likes of ‘Basketball Wives’ and ‘Love & Hip Hop’ than its own.
However, all isn’t lost.
That’s right, after a rocky number of weeks, the show has seen Parks- who joined its cast in its third season- lift its viewing figures to the 3.7 million mark, handing NBC & Bravo its highest-rated ‘Atlanta’ episode since its season seven premiere showing!
Alas, newbie Claudia Jordan may find herself unable to celebrate the show’s ratings revival this week, as fans have called for its producers to give her the boot.
Yes, even before her first run on the series comes to an end, the ‘Celebrity Apprentice‘ contestant has found herself on the receiving end of firing calls because she’s yet to deliver her own storyline.
