Real Housewives: The Five Worst Friendship Break-Ups in Franchise History

Real Housewives: The Five Worst Friendship Break-Ups in Franchise History | TVFiends Daily | Scoop.it

If those words sound familiar to Real Housewives fans, that's because they are. Only two days after the longtime bond between Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice's was shattered on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the close friendship between Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney came crumbling down on Tuesday's Orange County season finale. And these are only two of the many platonic break-ups the Bravo franchise has endured in recent years. If The Bachelor has a horrible track record with romantic break-ups, The Real Housewives franchise is the queen bee when it comes to ending friendships. Need proof? Look no further than the five worst spats in Housewives history.

'Anger Management' Review: Sheen's Attempt At Spin Control

'Anger Management' Review: Sheen's Attempt At Spin Control | TVFiends Daily | Scoop.it

The interactions with these women are all designed to make Charlie look magnanimous, wise and kind. And because audiences frequently transfer the feelings they have about a character to the actor playing that character, this repulsive show will no doubt go a long way toward solidifying Sheen's image as a harmless party boy (an image that the media is all too willing to go along with), and erase the image of Sheen as a man who has repeatedly been accused of being violent toward women.

Canceling Daytime Soap Operas Is Easy, Replacing Them Is Not - 2012-06-26 13:09:49 | Broadcasting & Cable

The problem for the broadcast networks, however, is that there really isn't much for them to turn to as replacement programming. Daytime today, with all the cable networks, is very competitive for viewers' attention, and there are so many cooking shows in primetime that the last thing many viewers want to watch in daytime are more cooking shows.

This is significant because it demonstrates how the social web can be used by networks as a supplementary data layer when developing and evaluating new shows. Viewers are saying they will commit time to a show if it has high caliber talent behind it, that’s not always validated by surveys or research panels, and we’re discovering all of this with social data.
