It looks like Mariah Carey may share more with Christina Milian than an ex in Nick Cannon.
Because, just like the singer’s 2004 hit, the ratings of her new E! “docu-series” are dipping it low.
It’s not all doom and gloom, though.
Find out why below…
As reported, the December 4th premiere of ‘Mariah’s World’ commanded an audience of 1.24 million. Yet this was on E!’s sister channel Bravo and with the benefit of a lead-in from the immensely popular ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta. Its transmission on its own network was only watched by 630k.
Still, the pairing of the numbers for the one-off simulcast made for a “respectable” debut.
So how did the show fare without the padding?
According to TV By The Numbers, the second airing of the series this past Sunday was watched by 809k viewers, with a 18-49 rating of 0.4.
See the pros and cons?
On the one hand, when left to stand on its own merit, the show was unable to maintain its million + viewership. Yet, at the same time, it’s showing some growth on its home station.
Will ‘Mariah’s World’ sink or swim? It appears it’s a bit too early to tell.
We’re surprisingly enjoying the show. Indeed, it’s not the ‘Being Bobby Brown’ sized mess we thought it would be.
Mimi, as OTT as she can be, is coming across relatively well and her supporting cast make for engaging viewing. We actually like Stella.
The only drawback is that the whole thing feels like it would have been more appealing 5 years ago.
Like, in an era where Mariah has no problem sharing her assets all over Instagram, are folk really intrigued by what was once her mystique?
