'Sister Wives' Finale Brings In Over 2.7 Million Viewers As Bigamy Investigation Moves Forward!

Wed, October 20, 2010 11:02am EDT by 5 Comments

Is the criminal investigation surrounding the cast of ‘Sister Wives’ actually helping the show’s ratings?

The final episode of TLC’s new reality show Sister Wives made for GREAT TV — with ratings to prove it! The series, about the Brown families (yes, with an S), averaged about 2.3 million viewers throughout the season. The finale however brought in  a staggering 2.7  million fans, making it the highest rated episode of the series!

The finale focused on patriarch Kody Brown’s marriage to fourth wife Robyn Sullivan and the jealousy of his three other wives Meri, Christine and Janelle. This jealousy was a theme throughout the series and certainly helped with the record numbers — but what else makes the show such a hit?

The national headlines about the bigamy investigation into the Brown family, which is currently underway, along with the controversial topic of polygamy certainly only helped ratings

The Utah County Attorney and the Utah Attorney General met Oct. 19 to see if they would move forward with charging the Brown’s with felony bigamy.

If charged and convicted, Kody  could face up to 15 years in prison, while wives Robyn, Janelle, Christine and Meri could each face up to five years.

Do you think the Brown family should be charged with bigamy?

The world’s so corrupt nowadays why not? I mean if everyone wants to feel good about their own horrible family secrets why not point out it should be perfectly fine for polygamy to exist even though most polygamists are monogamists at heart. I for one want one man to love me for me and I think it would be degrading to have to share a man with any other woman. Women are worth more and should be treated as more than a collectors item or just another piece of property. No it shouldn’t be legal, but if this Nations going to fall it might as well go down with a big bang.

It is their business as to how they live, I feel that a regular family of one housband and one wife could learn a little bit on how to handle a family, from Cody and the Wives. We live as we want to and nobody says anything. I think they have a wonderful family and are teaching their kids on how to work and help each other out. How beautiful is that, when in this day and age there are kids out there that do not have anyone to turn to, these kids have four moms now and they seem to be doing great.
I hope the show stays on.

I don’t believe that Kody brown or the wives should be prosecuted for polygamy. Nor do I feel they should have to “hid the fact that they live the way they do. It would be the same to me as the “don’t ask don’t tell” law that was just overturned or prop 8 for legalize gay marriage. Meri and kody are the ONLY ones who hold a legal marriage certificate and thus even tho Janelle and Christine and now Robyn call themselves his wife, in the eyes of the law they aren’t married. So what? They live as such. Its their business! They aren’t going out and getting new marriage liceses thus there should be nothing illegal about it. Same as before same sex marriages were legalized in some states. Partnerships were formed, they had a ceremony in many cases, and lots of times changed to same last names. Legally? They weren’t married. Should they be arrested for living together or adopting children as parents or getting sperm donors and IVF? No! So what is wrong with Kody having one legal marriage but claiming 4 wives? Not hurting anybody. Not illegal.
