Has Tamar Braxton’s departure negatively affected the ratings of The Real daytime talk show? According to Global Grind, since the singer and reality TV star was fired after last season, the ratings have struggled. The site reports:
“Tamartians,” aka Tamar fans, have been slamming the show, calling it boring after ratings took a serious hit following the singer’s departure. According to reports, the talk show could be facing cancellation in the wake of Braxton’s firing. The third season of The Real debuted on FOX last month, making it the first to air without Braxton on the hosting panel.
Ratings dropped significantly, with a 22 percent decrease in viewers compared to the Season 2 premiere in 2015. Broadcasting Cable suggested that The Real could potentially be in danger of cancellation unless ratings improve, revealing that the 22 percent decrease in ratings “showed the largest declines of any talkers that haven’t already been canceled.”
P.S. Is Tamar’s departure to blame for the ratings decline? Or are there other elements of the show that need to be improved?
