‘Basketball Wives LA’ Finds Ratings Footing After Season 5 Slump

Published: Tuesday 23rd Aug 2016 by David


Pam Healey‘s ‘Basketball Wives LA’ has pulled itself out of the ratings swamp it found itself in at the start of its latest season.

Full story below…

The ‘Basketball Wives’ spin-off follows the lives of women living in the Los Angeles area with romantic ties to the lucrative sport.

At the start of its latest season, the show found itself in problematic territory when its second episode failed to fly north of 1 million viewers when it picked up 920,000 screens.

Fortunately, things have taken a turn for the better since then.

For, with help from fan favourites Tami Roman, Brandi Maxielle, newcomer Duffy and the comedic Jackie Christie, the program has seen its viewing figures rise with each episode.

Much to the delight of VH1, August 14th’s episode reached the 1.26 million viewers point after the episode before it picked up 1.12 million TV sets.

Quite interestingly,the show is yet to match the numbers it scored during its Draya Michele-fronted third season.

Following its premiere on February 17th 2014, the season saw seven of its episodes spun by over 2 million viewers.


April 28th 2014′s reunion special marked the last time the show crossed this commendable barrier.

Keep it locked on TGJ to learn how Monday night’s episode performed.

Before then…

Press play.

    The show is tired. I tried watching, but I literally fell asleep on it. They need to show the Tami vs. Duffy fight and end the series. Vh1 and Shaunie have made enough coins.
