The Real Housewives of New York City to be CANCELED After Record-Low Ratings?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The latest episode of The Real Housewives of New York City offered plenty in the way of dramatic fireworks, but if the new numbers are any indication, fans are simply losing interest the ladies' lavish lives.

All season, the show has been receiving its lowest ratings since its premiere in 2008. This week's installment marked an all-time low for the series with just 1.1 million viewers.

Worse, the show pulled in just over 500,000 viewers in the all-important 18-49 demographic.

Sources say Andy Cohen and other Bravo execs have declared that something must be done and are planning to either fire all the Housewives and completely overhaul the cast for season 7, or simply cancel the show altogether.

The ratings for season 5 of RHONY were considered disappointing by the network and the current audience for season 6 is a full 13% smaller.

Some have gone so far to suggest that memorable scenes such as Sonja Morgan's epic drinking bender, and a detailed discussion about George Teichner's sex life were scripted and staged as part of a last-ditch effort to save the series. 

Of course, while the show might not draw the crowd it once enjoyed, at their best the ladies of NYC could bring the drama with the best of Bravo's Housewives.

Be sure to watch The Real Housewives of New York City online at TV Fanatic to enjoy the show at its peak.
