Week one was higher than many TLC shows. TLC has been doing very poorly in the ratings as of late. Many of the TLC shows do not reach even 1.2 million (although one of the new TLC hits is "Breaking Amish" which received a 3.063 rating and 1.3 in the key demographic this past Sunday). However, as you can see, ratings dropped significantly for the LPBW Wedding series from week 1 to week 2.
Even Matt Roloff has admitted when ratings get around and below 1.0 for a cable series, that's when it's time to worry. Matt always attempts to put a positive spin on anything involving the Roloffs, and Matt made that ratings comment back in Season 5 of the regular LPBW series when ratings had dropped to the 1.2 level (Matt was attempting to imply there was nothing to worry about because at that point ratings were still above 1.0).
During the TLC glory days of Jon & Kate Plus 8 and LPBW, J&K used to regularly receive ratings in the 3's and LPBW often exceeded 2.0 or at least very high 1's.
By Season 4 and 5 (interestingly enough, it was around this time, later in the series, that Matt and Amy Roloff gained more power and achieved Executive Producer status, which they still have for the "specials" and for the "Wedding Farm" series), ratings for LPBW were dropping to the 1.2 - 1.0 level. Some episodes in Season 5 registered 1.0 and 1.1's. That's when TLC pulled the plug on the regular weekly LPBW series.
As we all know, TLC then agreed to periodic "update" specials (about 4 per year) of LPBW before announcing 6 episodes of the new "Wedding Farm" series. The LPBW "update specials" received ratings ranging between 1.3 and 1.7.
