Ratings: How Does The ‘RHODubai’ Finale Compare To Recent Bravo Finales?

The RHODubai Season 1 finale ended with a slight increase in the reality TV ratings over the last few weeks, according to just-released numbers.

Episode 12 earned a 0.15 in the P18-49 demo and 478,000 live viewers, according to Nielsen, which is pretty consistent when compared to the rest of the season. The season-ender was the number 8 show on all of cable last night, with TLC’s Dr. Pimple Popper taking the 9pm hour.

The Real Housewives of Dubai premiered to a decent 0.23 in the demo and 769,000 live viewers back in June but the show has been unable to match those heights ever since, dipping to a season low 0.10 and 478,000 viewers back on August 10. For comparison’s sake, this is below the Season 1 finale of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City which earned a 0.19 and 521,000 viewers in February 2021 and below the Season 5 finale of The Real Housewives of Dallas which earned a 0.19 and 578,000 viewers in April 2021.

The RHODubai Season 1 finale also falls below the Season 13 finale of The Real Housewives of New York City which scored a 0.20 and 841,000 viewers in August 2021 and resulted in that show being put on hiatus before the network announced it will be split into two shows, one featuring an all-new cast and the other featuring a mixture of former and current cast members.

Both shows have yet to make their return to Bravo.

While it’s possible the network was hoping for a sizeable increase in viewership for the Real Housewives of Dubai finale and higher live ratings, there are positives when it comes to these numbers. For starters, the series has definitely levelled out in recent weeks and while the live numbers are lower than RHOSLC, RHOD, and RHONY, it’s been quite a while since those episodes aired and Dubai does grow once DVR viewings are taken into account.

Plus, with all of the recent drama between the cast and a fiery reunion, the series shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

Chanel Ayan, Caroline Brooks, Sara Al Madani, Nina Ali, Caroline Stanbury, and Lesa Milan make up the Season 1 cast. Part 1 of The Real Housewives of Dubai reunion kicks off Wednesday, August 31 at 9pm ET/PT on Bravo.
