The sixth season of Desperate Housewives, a television series created by Marc Cherry, began airing on September 27, 2009 and concluded on May 16, 2010. The season consisted of 23 episodes. The deceased Mary Alice Young continues to narrate the events in the lives of her friends and Wisteria Lane residents, Susan Delfino, Lynette Scavo, Bree Hodge and Gabrielle Solis. Angie Bolen and her family are the focus of this season’s mystery.

The sixth season of Desperate Housewives began in the Republic of Ireland on Tuesday, January 5, 2010 at 9.55pm. The sixth season began at 10.00pm on January 27, 2010 on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom and began on the Seven Network in Australia on February 1, 2010. It started airing at 9:00 PM on February 1, 2010 on OSN’s Show Series in the Middle East. It also started airing in India on Star World from February 26, 2010 at 10 pm. In France, Season 6 began airing in the translated version on April 1, 2010 on Canal +.

The series saw lower ratings in the sixth season. In the first 12 episodes, the series attracted very similar viewership to the second half of the fifth season. But after the thirteenth episode of season six, “How About a Friendly Shrink?”, the ratings declined heavily because of the competition with the 67th Golden Globe Awards. The series continued to lower numbers, with further competitions like the 2010 Grammy Awards, 2010 Winter Olympics, and the new CBS reality series Undercover Boss, which first aired after the Super Bowl XLIV, pulling impressive ratings. Desperate Housewives lost a lot of steam in the second half of its season, picking up some again in the final three episodes.
