Ratings: E!’s “WAGS” Sinks For Season Finale; “Botched” Returns

Leading out of the “Total Divas” finale, last week’s “WAGS” posted series high ratings in adults 18-49 and total viewership.

Leading out of a weaker (but not horribly rated) “Botched,” this week’s “WAGS” season finale suffered significant week-over-week losses.

The final first season “WAGS” episode drew a paltry 0.13 adults 18-49 rating with 341,000 viewers.

Both numbers trail those of last week’s broadcast, which posted a 0.42 adults 18-49 rating with 739,000 total viewers.

This week’s adults 18-49 rating represents a new series low; the viewership mark narrowly avoids the previous low mark of 334,000.

— The aforementioned “Botched,” which led into “WAGS,” posted a 0.34 adults 18-49 rating with 918,000 viewers.

— This week’s poor “WAGS” performance does not change a very important reality: the series has already earned a second season renewal at E! In announcing the renewal, E! cited the series’ popularity with young, female, racially diverse viewers.
