I’m A Celebrity Ratings Drop Post Heidi & Spencer

When I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here made its big debut on NBC (Much Music in Canada) 3 weeks ago, ratings were sky high at 4.6 million viewers for the premier episode alone. But it seems that viewers were not tuning in for contestants like Janice Dickenson or Stephen Baldwin, at least not according to this week’s ratings which have dropped 28% this week since drama inducing Heidi [Montag] and Spencer Pratt.

If you didn’t guess it already, I think it’s been made clear by this week’s ratings that viewers aren’t tuning into I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here to watch D-list celebrities battle it out in support of a worthy cause; they were watching simply for the drama brought by Heidi and Spencer. And if you watched, you know that they made it worth your while, with multiple attempts to escape from the jungle camp, fights with other contestants, declarations for devout love for Jesus, and an illness that would make them leave the jungle once and for all (and I’d bet we haven’t heard the end of that).

Honestly? I can attest for the reduction in viewers; because I’m not tuning in regularly either…I’ll catch the reruns or watch the show when not much else is happening. Let’s face it, without the drama, what’s this show got to offer us?
