The Real Housewives of New York debuted in 2008 and has been the second longest running show in the series, but sources are revealing that if ratings do not increase in 2014, Bravo is ready to cancel the show. While most of the shows have reached their peak in ratings, Naughty But Nice Rob reports RHONY dropped from an average high of over 2 million viewers per episode in seasons 3 and 4, to an average of just 1,583,714 in season 5.
The show will return in February 2014, but has not aired since October 2012, the first show in the franchise to take a year off from filming, with the exception of The Real Housewives Of DC. “Insiders are worried,” a source tells NBNR. “If this season does not do well in the ratings, I’m not sure if they will recast it or just face the fact that it is over.”
