LeAnn & Eddie Ratings: Incredibly Awful!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

If you've read any reviews for LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian's new VH1 series, then you know that LeAnn & Eddie might be the worst reality show ever.

But people watch lots of terrible shows starring no-talent hacks, right? After all, Keeping Up With the Kardashians is in its ninth season and we'd bet Kim doesn't even watch anymore.

Maybe viewers would ignore the critics and the fact that Rimes and Cibrian are terrible people, and just watch the darn thing anyway.

Hahaha! Glad you were able to convince yourselves of that, VH1 execs!

An estimated 374,000 people tuned into the premiere episode of LeAnn & Eddie. To put that in perspective, the episode was beaten in the ratings by reruns of COPS and Seinfeld, and a Nickelodoen sitcom called Dog With a Blog.

So yeah, it's all but guaranteed that LeAnn & Eddie will not be back for a second season. The only question is whether or not VH1 will let them ride out season one.

Most likely, the network will air the remaining episodes that have already been filmed. Both because they've already been produced, and because canning the show mid-season would be the ultimate embarrassment for the Rimes-Cibrians.

Well, we hate to say we told ya so, but as soon as we saw the first LeAnn & Eddie preview back in May, we knew this thing would be a disaster.

Somewhere, Brandi Glanville is celebrating with a second bottle of breakfast champagne.

I actually like the show and hope it does come back for a second season.

Look at Eddiot's face. Isn't that the face of a happy gigolo? Now he says he doesn't work because of the kids!! But he certainly doesn't mind that Brandi works like a slave to support the kids and his wife has to take all kinds of casino and fair singing gigs to support him. What a loser!

That money won't last forever. Her career's in the dumper. His current wife's, that is.

I thought he came across charming, she was mean. Big mistake to do this show, if she wants less hate, that is.

First of all, I would have to point out that there have been and continue to be far worse realty shows than this one. I wasn't particularly thrilled with the show, but I can think of other shows that feature people who have absolutely no claim to fame other than being rich (Real Housewives), misrepresent an entire culture and area of people (Jersey Shore), and promote serious issues as light-hearted and fame making (Teen Mom). I would say that those shows are by far worse than Leann & Eddie for obvious reasons. That being said, I would not claim that Leann's show is quality entertainment, but at least she is famous for a reason. Which brings me to my other point: Leann is not talentless, as this article suggested. She is one of the best singers making music today and is truly talented. While she may not be topping the charts any longer, her voice cannot be denied. Insinuating that she is famous only because of her tabloid life and putting her on the same level as Kim Kardashian is ridiculous and ignorant. She has won multiple Grammys and other awards for her music, released more than a dozen albums, and has been making music for two decades. She is famous for these reasons and not for stealing someone's husband or being a tabloid darling.

Unfortunately NOW she is famous for stealing someone's husband and being in the tabloids. She tells her p.r. people where she'll be and they alert the paparazzi. It's a new world of fame out there. LeAnn unfortunately set herself up as a victim, used Brandi's son's for p.r., is always all over Eddie and this reality show does show a mean and nasty side. LeAnn is country music, and she lost a lot of long time fans. Even her ex-husband, a sweet guy, went to the press and said she needs to stop hurting people and she doesn't get to be the victim. He is so disgusted with her behavior and doesn't recognize who she is. I never expected this from her either. I listened to her music when I was a kid, but most people today have NO idea who LeAnn is. It has been a very long time since she's released any album of note. People only know her from this disgusting behavior, not just that she and Eddie broke up their marriages, but that they are using that as a way back into the limelight. What a terrible move. LeAnn trashing those little boys Mom on the show constantly just makes her look like a "More-on" as Reba would say. They need to cancel the show and LeAnn needs to stop using two little boys and focus solely on her music because the woman can sing. But she's loving the drama and I don't know if mentally she had some kind of break because she sure isn't acting normal. She needs a manager who can get her music career rolling, and she needs to leave Brandi alone, she needs to stop with the pictures on instagram with her and the little boys and she's in a bikini hanging all over their Dad and trashing their Mom. The oldest is 11 now, and he is old enough to see and understand what his Dad and LeAnn have done and continue to do with this disgusting "reality" show with the worst script ever. Shut up and sing LeAnn.

Whitney Houston also had great talent.....and threw it away, just like Leann is doing. If you want to catch her singing now you can go down the street to the dog track/casino "Mardi Gras".....she is performing this weekend.....that's a long way from winning Grammys......and it's a shame.

From the length of your post you maybe a bit to involved in Leann's life......
