Bravo’s RHONY reboot dropped to a new series low in the live ratings, according to just-released numbers.
Sunday’s episode—which saw Jessel Taank finally break down after Sai De Silva and Erin Dana Lichy repeatedly questioned her upbringing and marriage—earned a dismal 0.12 in the P18-49 demo and just 416,000 live viewers.
Unfortunately for fans of the RHONY Season 14 reboot, this is a new series low in total viewers with the record previously being held by the August 13 episode which earned a 0.11 in the demo and 439,000 live viewers.
Boring storylines and low ratings for Bravo
In addition to dismal low ratings, some RHONY viewers have taken to social media to complain about boring storylines with much of the reboot focusing on the cast’s obsession surrounding Jessel’s upbringing.
Other than the viewers open distaste for stars Sai and Erin, not much is really going on.
“Sai thought she was going to be the queen on the new RHONY and she’s one of the biggest flops in a while,” one viewer recently posted on Twitter (X).
“A complete reboot wasn’t necessary,” shared another Bravo viewer. “They should’ve just added Jessel and Brynn to the veteran cast.”
While Andy Cohen and the network keep trying to make fetch happen with the RHONY Season 14 reboot, it is becoming harder and harder for Bravo to legitimately ignore the series low live ratings, even if DVR and Peacock are pulling in delayed viewers.
No contracts yet for Season 15
Ubah Hassan recently did an interview with Variety where she explained that despite reports the entire cast would be returning for Season 15, Bravo has not made them aware of any official plans.
“We don’t know yet [if we’re coming back],” the model explained. “That would be amazing. [I love] Bravo, the team, the people we work with. The crew, when we stopped filming, I missed those people. I was like, ‘Wait a second like, that’s it?’ It’s a good community. It’s a very, very good community and we’re really appreciative and grateful for them to give us, you know, the opportunity. It’s all in their hands, what they want to do, right? And we’re going to BravoCon.”
While it is true Bravo tends to make casting decisions once the reunion is taped, it would be odd for the reboot cast not to return considering how much marketing the network has put behind them and Ubah revealing that they have not been offered contracts to return is interesting, to say the least. Clearly, it is possible fans may get another reboot of the reboot.
For fans of the original cast, Peacock is set to welcome back Luann De Lesseps, Sonja Morgan, Kelly Bensimon, Kristen Taekman, Ramona Singer, and Dorinda Medley with The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip: RHONY Legacy debuting this December.
The reboot, meanwhile, features Jenna Lyons, Brynn Whitfield, Erin Dana Lichy, Sai De Silva, and Ubah Hassan and airs Sundays on Bravo.
