Victoria's Secret has a problem with the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. The ratings of the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2015 have been about 30% lower than the lingerie fashion show had the year before. The drop was significant. In 2014, over 9 million Americans tuned in to see Victoria's Secret models show off the season's new lingerie. In 2015, only 6.6 million watch despite support from top of the line musical guess The Weeknd, Ellie Goulding and Selena Gomez.
The 32% drop in ratings is especially hurtful to the brand as the 2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show was the 20th anniversary edition. This dramatic drop in ratings will have the market leading lingerie company rethink the concept of the show. The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2016 will likely be different.
