Total Divas ratings: Huge viewership drop on Nov. 24

Alberto E. Rodriguez

Total Divas was up against some strong competition Sunday night (Nov. 24, 2013) and the ratings show the result of it: a huge drop in viewership.

Earlier this year, Total Divas was enjoying a successful run of shows with ever rising ratings week after week. Then, SummerSlam broadcast on pay-per-view (PPV) in direct competition to it and the E! channel's viewership took a hit.

The show still averaged 1.34 million viewers that week.

Fast forward to the start of the second half of the first season and the show once again was gaining steam, although not at the rate of the initial opening. Then, Survivor Series hit the airwaves and well, you know, this story.

This past Sunday night's edition of Total Divas averaged just 920,000 viewers. That's in comparison to 1.4 million last week, a rather steep drop. There was plenty of strong competition from all sides, including the aforementioned Survivor Series event, a monster Denver Broncos vs. New England Patriots Sunday Night Football game on NBC, and the American Music Awards on ABC.

Add it all up and Total Divas couldn't crack one million viewers.

It should be most interesting to see if the show rebounds strong like it did after SummerSlam earlier in the year. And even if it doesn't, it's been renewed for a second season. Life is still good for the ladies.Here's how the ratings stack up throughout the series:

Episode one: 1.34 million
Episode two: 1.53 million
Episode three: 1.67 million
Episode four: 1.34 million
Episode five: 1.46 million
Episode six: 1.52 million
Episode seven: 1.09 million
Episode eight: 1.03 million
Episode nine: 0.93 million
Episode 10: 1.25 million
Episode 11: 1.41 million
Episode 12: 0.92 million
