'Desperate Housewives' Ties Ratings Low: Fans Explain Why

Desperate Housewives Series Low Ratings'Desperate Housewives' isn't desperate for good ratings, but these numbers aren't looking so hot.

With just 8.46 million viewers this week, the show was down around 10 percent, matching the series' all-time low in their demo, viewers 18-49.

So what does it mean? Well, nothing honestly. Since the show is in its eighth and final season, it's not like it can get canceled, but these signs of viewer fatigue aren't ever welcome, especially when it affects other shows in the lineup. ABC's freshman drama 'Pan Am' continues to make a steady descent in the ratings, and their troubled lead-in is partially to blame.

So why the bad 'Desperate' numbers? Are you still watching? And if not, why not? Fans share their thoughts via Twitter and Facebook after the jump ...

Desperate Housewives Final SeasonThe ladies of Wisteria Lane are back for one last go around and the 'Desperate Housewives' final season premiere is a doozy -- Gabrielle, Susan, Lynette and Bree are attempting to get rid of a dead body.

When Season 7 of 'Desperate Housewives' ended, Carlos had accidentally killed Gaby's abusive stepfather. The ladies agreed to help cover up the accident and that's where Season 8 -- the show's last -- starts.

Here's how ABC describes the new season: "For Season Eight, Carlos's murder of Gaby's evil stepfather and the cover up by Susan, Gaby, Bree and Lynette has far reaching effects. Feelings of guilt begin to overcome everyone in different ways. Susan starts to withdraw from her friends and family, and Gaby works to reach out to Carlos while his guilt weighs heavily upon him. As Lynette and Tom are grappling with their disintegrating marriage and impending separation, Lynette is having trouble making the right choices ever since she participated in the cover-up. And Bree must be especially careful around her new love, Detective Chuck Vance. Meanwhile a new sexy neighbor moves to town, Ben Faulkner, and he's Renee's first order of business."

'Desperate Housewives'Is the end nigh for 'Desperate Housewives'? It's been reported that the upcoming eighth season may be the last for the residents of Wisteria Lane.

According to TV Guide, ABC execs and the show's producers could decide the fate of the veteran drama by early August. However, there is a chance they could wait and see how Season 8 performs before they decide.

A source close to the show said that, "It's all dependent on the ratings. It will be up against some stiff competition." Gulp.

Although last season 'Housewives' was the 24th most-watched prime-time show among broadcast networks, audience numbers were down by around 50 percent from its Season 1 glory days.
