When the cast for Bravo's The Real Housewives of Miami was announced, we were excited to see that four of the cast members were Latina! And our readers we're excited too - in a Latina.com online poll, 73% of you said you would watch The Real Housewives of Miami, and the show got some early publicity from a couple of old DUI's.
Yet in spite of all of this, The Real Housewives of Miami's Feb. 22nd premiere only drew 1.21 million viewers, making it Bravo's lowest franchise debut in years! Even The Real Housewives of DC, which many people said was one of the most boring seasons of all-time, drew 1.7 million viewers for its premiere last year. In addition to the bad ratings, The Real Housewives of Miami was universally panned by critics, who said there isn't enough drama on the show to keep viewers hooked.
