New kid on the fashion TV block, VH1’s Styled by June premiered fifteenth on prime-time cable Monday night, with 1.065 million viewers. On the first episode, June Ambrose gives Mischa Barton a press-friendly makeover, while her two assistants bicker and liken themselves to a yeast infection that won’t go away (yes, that really happened). It’s difficult to believe that the entire world wouldn’t want to see the former O.C. star attempt to redeem herself from that pair of chest-high shorts … so what was America watching instead?
The top five, according to The Futon Critic:
WWE Raw (9:00) – USA
4.490 million viewers, #1; 2.133 million adults 18–49 (1.7 rating), #1
WWE Raw (10:00) – USA
4.274 million viewers, #2; 2.092 million adults 18–49 (1.6 rating), #2
Pretty Little Liars – ABC Family
3.689 million viewers, #3; 2.041 million adults 18–49 (1.6 rating), #3
American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior – Discovery
2.262 million viewers, #4; 1.512 million adults 18–49 (1.2 rating), #4
Lizard Lick Towing – truTV
2.001 million viewers, #5; 1.137 million adults 18–49 (0.9 rating), #7
Double man meat, a high school murder mystery, motorcycles, and repo agents from a town named after reptiles. Two of VH1’s other series — La La’s Full Court Life and Basketball Wives — snuck in ahead of June, but she still beat Bethenny Ever After and Spike TV’s 1000 Ways to Die.* Will you tune in next week?
