“Black Ink Crew” returned last week, and plenty of drama went down on the season 7 midseason premiere.

Alex and Donna declared war on Cease and Teddy.

And it appeared as if someone came by to shoot up the shop.

However, all of the drama did not result in high ratings.

Ratings are actually dropping.

    So this is why they had that actress on there pretending to be Dutchess. They are desperate.

    I think people are losing interest because both shows have gotten way too fake.

    Sh-t if we being real, people are moving on because most of the sh-t we see is fake. If we want to see scripted programming, we prefer to watch real scripted shows that are actually good like Stranger Things, Game Of Thrones, Claws, Power, The CHI, 911, This Is Us, Queen Sugar, etc. Not this bullsh-t here. And Chicago has been flopping because the producers decided that they want to keep Lily’s racist a-s on the show. She fake quit but her a-s ain’t going nowhere. She will be in the shop still saying n-gga like always.

    I’m not surprised. They started putting too many “others” on these shows. You got Teddy a black man talking about how his weakness is white latinas meanwhile he treats the black women on the show like trash. Then you got a mexican chick calling black people the n word and then playing victim when called out. Yeah I don’t blame people for no longer watching.

      Let’s not forget Sky,she uses her son’s for a storyline, she’s constantly half naked and behaving goofy, but wants her 2 son’s who are grown men to respect her, both Teddy and Ceasar are very disrespectful to women, this show use to show them tattooing, all they do is kiss Ceasers a-s just to have a job, he treats his employees like sh-t, Bae does have her own tattoo shop which she owns, I think Black Ink is just for the show

        I TOTALLY agree with your comment. I stopped watching after the disrespect that Ceasar was showing towards the women. It was too much! I was through with Lily even BEFORE her using the N word. She is just too cocky and attitude is ridiculous. She’s not even a good fighter. She catches people off guard and then security rushes in! Get rid of her for good!

    I never like NY Cease is way to extra and Skye irks my soul. Chicago is going down hill simply because of Lily, plan and simple. The ONLY way to win viewers back is to get rid of her. That show haven’t been right since her drunk arse got on there.

      I hate that Ryan is so stupid,alot of fans don’t like Rachel and him together but hell she was the only one who stood up to everybody when they were threatening Ryan,he only stood up for himself against Van and Charmain when he was with Rachel, now he’s back a-s kissing the same employees that put hands on him, and dragged him.

    So I wrote this on the recap post but I’ll paste it here too:

    This season has been awful. They really need to revamp this show when this season ends. Most of the cast needs to be replaced and they need to stop with these fake storylines. We can tell Alex is not really hurt. Sky’s had the same storyline for the last 30 years. Kitty is just there. Bae and her mother make the show weird. And the obsession with hiring all these white latinas makes no sense when the show became successful when the cast was all black. They need to get it together.

    To Add: And as far as the Chicago show, it’s been awful since they started focusing so much on Lily. She gets a lot of support on social media but the silent majority is not here for her and the ratings reflect that. These networks get too caught up in what they see on social media but it doesn’t always tell the truth.

    The ratings are dropping because Caesar and Ted are some a-ses. Especially Teddy for sucker punching Alex. I was a huge fan of the show but Caesar seems to pick on the smaller dudes. And that fact that he throws out that b-tch word is unbelievable. He has a mother and a daughter. And last but not least why didn’t he have that same energy with Sky’s baby daddy or O’Sh-t???

    He called Sky a b-tch in front of her son, and how the hell Alex gonna sue when he’s stirring sh-t up with Ceasar, and Donna is still causing problems, I really can’t stand Sky now, she puts on a front for TV, but she got sued by the landlord she was renting that house in Atlanta, she lied and said she purchased the home herself, the landlord said he stated in her lease for her to not film there, he said Ceasar was not supposed to be living there, he also sued Ceasar and their production company
