Sister Wives star Kody Brown didn’t say much at the end of Sunday night’s episode as some fans waited for his next week’s preview. But it never came.
The Sister Wives didn’t seem to advertise Sunday’s finale for season 14. But it looks as though that’s what it was. So, it seems fans just watched the last episode of the season.
While the television menus list 16 episodes for this season, Sunday night rolled out episode 15. Not much info seems offered online when you look for information. Sunday’s episode didn’t come up under Sister Wives season 14 finale. But it looks like this is the case.
Sister Wives Update: Kody Brown and Two Wives Say Good-Bye For Now
Kody Brown, Christine Brown, and Janelle Brown thanked all the Sister Wives viewers on their social media accounts. Kody posted that he hopes you all see them again soon. So does that mean Season 15 isn’t in the bag yet?
What about that 16th episode that didn’t materialize this season? Quite possibly, they meant that episode for the “Tell All” segment. Maybe that didn’t happen due to the stay-at-home quarantine the nation is voluntarily following.
Could the “Tell All” be the 16th episode that’s up on the menu? It’s listed without the preview that usually posts with the Sister Wives episodes.
Anyway, there’s no news yet as far as a Season 15 for the Sister Wives. Although Kody Brown usually finagles his way onto the TLC lineup.
When they were canceled after Season 11, Kody allegedly made an offer that they couldn’t refuse. It wasn’t as gory as the Godfather but it was a jaw-dropping offer never-the-less.
Kody Wheels and Deals
After Season 11, the ratings didn’t support TLC giving up primetime for this series. Paying their huge salaries to the Sister Wives five adults couldn’t happen after the ratings tanked, according to reports.
So instead Kody Brown, Meri Brown, Janelle Brown, Robyn Brown along with Christine Brown agreed not to take all four salaries. Kody supposedly made a deal with the powers-who-be at TLC back then.
At that time, the five spouses in this Sister Wives plural marriage made $180,000 each for a salary. Added together they reportedly earned just under a million dollars per season.
After TLC canceled Sister Wives, TLC alum Kody Brown reportedly offered to do the entire season for just one of the $180,000 salaries. That means four salaries dwindled down to one. They did it and apparently the ratings bloomed again. This push on Kody’s part kept the Sister Wives going up through this season.
No news surfaced saying they went back to their original salaries for the newer seasons. But they probably did or maybe they even make more than they did back in 2011. After that cancelation, the show seemed to continue on through season 14 without so much as a hitch.
Sister Wives: Fly High In Ratings
According to the reports up until the end of March, out of the Top 150 Original Cable Telecasts ratings for Sunday night, Sister Wives came in at number nine the week of March 22. They hovered over that spot not moving too far up or down the list throughout the season. So this demonstrates they certainly do have a following.
Unless Kody Brown and company have other plans, it’s highly unlikely TLC would cancel a show that beat out TLC’s 90 Day Fiance: Pillow Talk, which came in number 26 on that list. So it seems that it makes sense to bring Kody Brown and his Sister Wives clan back to the TLC lineup.
They did well this season despite TLC moving them up to 10 pm from their original 8 pm time slot. Many fans thought that was the kiss of reality show death.
Nice Numbers – Nice Ratings
But it seems they did okay with one of the 90 Day Fiance franchise shows leading up to their series. 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days came in at number two on the list with The Walking Dead from AMC topping the list at number one.
Sister Wives usually debuts a new season in January but reports assume the filming will be interrupted due to the nation-wide quarantine. So if a new season is in the cards, January might be too early this time around.
But who knows, Kody Brown is known to move mountains to get what he wants. So just maybe he’ll figure out a way to camera-up his four homes and start the season off with the family stuck at home like the rest of the country.
Maybe he’ll even demonstrate some home-schooling of the dozen or so kids still in school and under one of his roofs. Until then, let Soap Dirt keep you updated on the latest news from Sister Wives.
