This season of Total Divas, the fifth in the series, has seen a gradual decline in viewers dating all the way back to the premiere episode. Even a hugely dramatic story of Nikki Bella getting angry at her sister, Brie, for purchasing a scooter didn't end the skid.
This week's show, however, featuring John Cena helping Nikki in her recovery from neck issues and Natalya attempting to get good pictures out of her family, finally turned it around.
The show drew 650,000 viewers, up from last week's 580,000.
Ep. 1: 1.15 million
Ep. 2: 939,000
Ep. 3: 840,000
Ep. 4: 810,000
Ep. 5: 808,000
Ep. 6: 777,000
Ep. 7: 591,000
Ep. 8: 580,000
Ep. 9: 650,000
Next week's show will feature Paige helping a friend come out. Perhaps a new viewership trend will be established?
