ABC is trying once again to fill the Tuesdays at 10pm timeslot. New shows Mind Games, Killer Women, and Lucky 7 have all failed. Could an established show like Celebrity Wife Swap be a success or will it be cancelled as well? Stay tuned!
On Celebrity Wife Swap, a pair of families switch wives/mothers for two weeks. The ladies are given a chance to see how another celebrity raises children and lives in the spotlight. In the first week, the guest wife must live by the house rules. In the second week, they get to take charge.
The ratings are typically the best indication of a show’s likelihood of staying on the air. The higher the ratings (particularly the 18-49 demo), the better the chances for survival. This chart will be updated as new ratings data becomes available — typically around 11:30am EST/8:30am PST. Refresh to see the latest.
Final season averages: 1.1 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 3.29 million total viewers.

Last year comparison: The second season of Celebrity Wife Swap averaged a 1.3 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.02 million total viewers.
Note: These are the final national numbers (unless noted with an “*”). These are different from the fast affiliate numbers which are just estimates of the actual ratings. The final nationals are typically released within 24 hours of the programming or, in the case of weekends and holidays, a couple days later.
