For the lovers of fashion events, and gorgeous and fit girls, the most anticipated TV program is Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show as it features a roster of the best and goddess-like models alongside with the other popular music artists performing on the stage while they fire up the runway. Apparently, it wasn’t received well similar to last year.
Although it became a worldwide trending topic in Twitter, that was not sufficient to post a better ratings this year. According to Perez Hilton, it only gathered a 2.3% rating on that Tuesday night event. In addition, it reduced to 32% in total viewership from the age bracket of 18-49 than the prior year which have Taylor Swift on the sideline.
In a report from Headline Planet, the fashion show attracted only around 6.6 M viewers as statistics gathered by Nielsen. Last year, the VSFS drew in 9.29 M and posted 3.4% ratings. This low ratings happened even if huge stars like The Weeknd, Ellie Goulding, and Selena Gomez performed for the event.
Even the debut catwalk of Gigi Hadid and Kendall Jenner for the “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2015” was not enough to make it a tough competitor in the TV viewership. The current year’s posting of ratings and low viewership is the worst record they have ever since it started broadcasting way back in 2002.
One of the reasons of this unexpectedly poor rating is the domination of “Chicago Fire” in the time slot. The Wrap reported that this series got 9.6 M viewers at around 9 pm and retained the number at that million mark with 9.1 M viewers at 10 pm.
Hopefully by next year, the organizers of “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” will be able to be more creative with their event and attract more viewers and post higher ratings.
