Below Deck Med Season 5 may be one of the show’s most controversial seasons yet but not only is it performing well in the drama department, the ratings are nothing to balk at, either.
As a result, many have inquired about the ratings for Below Deck Season 5 amid all of the chaos, so we’ve gone ahead and compiled the numbers, noting where some of the season’s biggest moments may have played a part.
To sum it up, however, this is the show’s highest rated season ever and despite some fans calling for a boycott after Hannah was fired, the show is still a blockbuster success for the network.
Before you check out the ratings, it is important to note that this information comes directly from Nielsen Media Research, the U.S.-based company that is trusted by both broadcast and cable networks, including Bravo. Here at TV Deets, we use this information to compile our daily reality TV ratings reports.
Additionally, ratings are ranked by the demo, not by overall viewers, and this is because that is what is most important to advertisers. The higher the ratings in the adults 18-49 demo, the more valuable the advertising space around the show becomes.
