'Flipping Out': Trace's Firing Is Season's Most Watched Episode
He may not have a job at Jeff Lewis Design anymore, but Trace Lehnhoff has one thing he can be proud of. More people watched Jeff Lewis fire him on Tuesday’s Flipping Out, than last week’s episode in which Sarah Berkman was canned.
According to Bravo, this week’s episode is the most-watched this season to date. With 1.5 million total viewers, it showed an increase of 14% over last week. It also ranks as the series’ highest rated episode ever among adults 18-49.
Um, nice job, Trace… Actually, it may not have anything to do with Trace. We felt it was a total surprise when Jeff fired him in a quickly escalating confrontation after he caught the design assistant using company time to design his own closets. Trace’s real mistake? Getting caught.
Bravo, send him a consolation prize.
New episodes of Flipping Out air Tuesdays at 9 p.m.
