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.

They should have kept the first cast, maybe introduced one or two new cast members over the years but to completely rehaul a tv show, is what we call in marketing brand suicide. Just bring the old cast back and act like nothing ever changed. It's the only thing that will save this franchise. Get rid of the new muppet looking characters. They do not enhance the show.

Get rid of Aviva and Ramona! The show will be much nicer to watch. Those two are mental messes who need meds and therapy. Those two are cut from the same cloth and know it. They don't care what comes out of their mouths or what they do. Who would want to go on TV and act like to whack nut jobs. Bravo needs to cancel there contracts and bring Luann back full time. Bravo is responsible for all the crap happening on the show not Heather, Carole, Luann and Kristen. Think again bravo.

I totally agree with LTK. Get rid of Aviva and Ramona AND Sonja. Sick of all three of these woman. I LOVE Heather, Carole and Kristen!! Heather is so great to watch. She has some great oneliners and she's so smart and funny. Kristen is hilariously funny, def. smart and can totally hold her own. Carole is just so cool and I love her dialog to the cameras. They all have great friendships which I thoroughly enjoy watching and Bravo needs to let the audience get to know them better. They are the best!!!
