Kelly Rowland’s ‘Chasing Destiny’ Delivers Warm Ratings For BET

Published: Thursday 7th Apr 2016 by Rashad

Kelly Rowland‘s hotly anticipated talent search ‘Chasing Destiny’ strutted onto TV screens Tuesday, after the highly anticipated return of ‘Black Girls Rock.’ 

The docu-series, which sees the Destiny’s Child star team up with renown creative director Frank Gatson to piece together music’s next big girl group, was greeted with favorable viewership for its timeslot.

A feat accomplished thanks to Rowland’s relentless promotion (which saw her touch and tackle television, radio, and print), now the final ratings have been revealed to show if all of the ‘Work’ singer’s hard work paid off.

Get the numbers below:

Final Viewership:  720,000

  1. ???Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??? April 7, 2016

    Uh oh! Okay, the numbers aren’t so bad. I actually loved the premiere, but I really wish she doesn’t try to force the girls into the “R&B” category like what the rest of the music industry does. Have some pop in there, because ultimately EVERYONE needs that major pop hit to breakthrough. Why do you think Tori Kelly hasn’t popped off yet?

    Kii it did worse than Zoe Ever After so you know the group gon flop.

    • #justsayn April 7, 2016

      But Zoe ever After came on at 8 pm at night perfect time slot! Chasing Destiny came on at 10:30 pm at night! When they change the time of the show next week the ratings will most likely go up bcuz I most definitely fell asleep during Blk girls rock and made sure i recorded it!

    It did those low numbers while premiering after BGR? How many viewers did BGR get? Damn.

    • Know-it-all April 7, 2016

      Bgr only did a little under a mil so chasing destiny didn’t really have that many less viewers especially at 10:30

  8. MUSICHEAD April 7, 2016

    These are not low numbers dumbasses! BET is considered a premium channel in some parts of the country resulting in lower viewership in general compared to other cable networks. Anything with a 500,000 viewership or higher for BET is considered a success. Anything above 1 million is ratings gold for that network.

  9. MUSICHEAD April 7, 2016

    I actually like Kelly’s new show. She’s a lil ghetto tho which makes me like her even more lol. She is sweet but can cut with her words real quick. That’s my kinda chick! Congrats Kelly!

    • ingodwetrust May 26, 2016

      Yeah it’s a great show but come on now Pussycat Dolls had about 5 girls.
      And all of them kind of vibe and look the same but the girls they don’t look the sameTo me I feel like the producer on the show Elise cut one or two of them

  10. Beyhive April 7, 2016

    Y’all are crazy for it to be BET those number are great. Plus I did better than what Zoey ever after did…

    • #JACKIE April 7, 2016

      • Byejay April 7, 2016

        Ciara stans know everybody else’s numbers except the flop they Stan for

      • #JACKIE April 7, 2016

        I do know Kelly has NO platinum albums.

  11. Ann April 7, 2016

    A 930pm central 1030 Eastern start time shoot alotta pple are ready for bed at that time lol but yeah those numbers aren’t bad at all for BET Black Girls Rock didn’t pull 1million compared to previous seasons the one Kelly was on being the highest 2.7 million on a Sunday which has is where they shouldve keept it!

  12. CL says Hello Bi+ches April 7, 2016

    3 Kelly Rowlands don’t make a destiny’s child.


    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 April 7, 2016

      I feel the same way about Rihanna’s talent!


      • CL says Hello Bi+ches April 7, 2016

        When was beyFlops last number 1?

  13. FC/JC April 7, 2016

    Wow, It was really good though….. BGR wasnt that entertaining aside from the on point performers, Maybe that had something to do with it.
    However the show will pick up….
    BET as a network has been on a downward spiral for a few years now, so the numbers are decent considering….

    • #justsayn April 7, 2016

      Yes, BGR was a snoozefest this yr! They need to keep that show on Sundays… As for Kelly her show is a hit and her ratings would have been much higher if it came on earlier in the evening! Her ratings will only go up once the time change and more ppl pass the word on about the show! It really is a great show and Ive heard nothing but good things about it…. her ratings are already great for BET!

  14. CL says Hello Bi+ches April 7, 2016

    WWE Total Divas had more views.

    • BEYSTAN_ SINCE 1997 April 7, 2016

      More views than Rihanna’s 777 documentary

      • The Kpop Guy, Matt~ April 7, 2016

        Bey Stan since 1997? Aren’t you too old for this site?

  15. King Mark111 /.\ April 7, 2016

    It almost out did Oh The Flop Tour. #808K

  16. Cinnamon Girl April 7, 2016

    Black Girls Rock had low numbers, too. No one fawks with BET anymore

  18. Annalise April 8, 2016

    I liked it a lot! It has a very authentic documentary feel to it, and reminds me a bit of the MTV Diary. I knew it wasn’t going to do large numbers because it doesn’t have the high budget and scope that X Factor had, or the drama/catfights that Making the Band did. But as long as it’s consistent then it will do fine. Well done Kelly!

  19. Tran anti bloper honey love but it okay girl April 9, 2016


  20. Snoozing May 9, 2016

    Okay so I admit… I’m in the bed by 9pm…if I feel like I can hang I will tune in but I never can get through the entire show…change the show time! Lawdddd. Most of us got to get up at 5am. I do enjoy the show! So what I do is watch it on my TV provider’s app while at work the next day.

  21. ingodwetrust May 26, 2016

    They look Awkward. The dark skin one look like she Could be a solo artist like Jennifer Hudson. They should let Gabby goShe don’t look right with the girls. They just look weird to me Everyone is not the same height

  22. ingodwetrust May 26, 2016

    Yes it’s a good show for The world but she’s not thinking about the appearance of the girls and how the Vision Works To me she needs to at least Cut 2. Gabby voice is too deep And the dark skinned it would just put me in the mind of Jennifer Hudson’s solo Her voice is too great to be in a group.

  23. Mocha23 June 11, 2016

    I love this show I record it every week!
