Chelsea Houska and Cole DeBoer debuted a new show just a few days ago.
teen mom Fans want to know two things. Down Home Fab Good thing…and do people actually see it?
Obviously people have different opinions about the show. just like any other show.
As for viewership…well, they’re putting teen mom Embarrassing. embarrassingly.
On Monday, January 16th, Chelsea Houska and Cole DeBoer’s Down Home Fab premiered on the HGTV network.
HGTV has a lot of name recognition, but it’s pretty niche for most TV viewers. That’s not a bad thing, but it does mean that it rarely dominates the timeslots that major cable channels do.
However, it reportedly drew 678,000 viewers for its Monday night premiere.
The introduction was a rebroadcast Fixer Upper: Welcome Home From 2021 when it was 711,000.
I’m pretty sure the 33,000 viewers didn’t just change channels (many more unchanneled and others tuned in), but it’s not bad for a new show.especially when comparing fixer upper.
But what really gets people’s attention is how these debut numbers compare to certain other shows.
For years we’ve covered teen mom and decline in program viewership.
Interest in actually sitting down and watching an episode is waning, even as MTV tries to breathe new life into the franchise.
It’s not just about casting either. Culture has changed. Sure, people are still interested in witnessing the horrors of intergenerational trauma play out on camera, but perhaps the interest isn’t what it was in its heyday. teen mom.
So what’s the best comparison for this new HGTV show?
Teen Mom: Family Reunion is currently airing. The season premiered on January 3rd.
Just this week, the show featured what we reluctantly call the granny brawl.
The episode was now titled “Double Mama Drama”. And, as we noted, it aired the same week as Chelsea and Cole premiered.
How many people did you agree with?
274,000. Some programs get excited about such ratings. But for MTV’s reality series, not so much.
in the meantime, Down Home Fab Recorded about 2.5 times the audience rating.
No, it’s not the smash hits everyone talks about, we watch it religiously every week.
But it’s a pretty encouraging sign that Chelsea’s new show’s ratings (so to speak) dwindle those of the franchise that spawned her.
Teen Mom is also suffering from declining viewership this season alone.
It’s quite normal for a show to drop in ratings after its premiere. It may recover after the start of the season, but it’s rare.
But a 17% drop in just two weeks (what happened to Teen Mom: Family Reunion this month) isn’t good news.
there is always the possibility home town fab I was able to follow suit.
Of course, their premiere episode included Teen Mom: Family ReunionSo even with a 17% decrease, we’re still over 562,000.
if still family reunion No more fell (miraculously), home town fab Yet the number of viewers will more than double.
Maybe fewer and fewer people tune in to watch Down Home Fabwhich airs Monday nights on HGTV, but will also air early on Discovery Plus.
Some initial reviews criticized the house as “ugly”. I suspect we’ll need more episodes before making any judgments.
But for now, congratulations to Chelsea and Cole. Their shows may not be “hit” in the big picture, but they are watched by hundreds of thousands of people. Oh, and that doesn’t include streaming numbers!
