RHOBH earned a new Season 12 high in the ratings with Reunion Part 1, pushing RHOSLC to a season best as well, according to just-released numbers.
Part 1 of the Season 12 reunion earned a massive 0.42 in the P18-49 demo and 1,430,000 live viewers according to Nielsen, by far the largest audience for RHOBH so far this year. The episode saw the entire full-time cast sit down to address the season’s drama with Crystal Kung Minkoff and Diana Jenkins taking most of the heat for the first hour.
No other RHOBH Season 12 episode has earned over a 0.40 in the demo so Bravo executives will surely be very happy with these overnight ratings.
Meanwhile, the success pushed RHOSLC to its largest audience for Season 3 so far, earning a 0.28 in the P18-49 demo and 708,000 live viewers. So far, RHOSLC Season 3 is performing pretty similarly to how Season 2 did overall in the ratings.
RHOBH is having a fantastic season in the live ratings, with every episode but two earning over 1 million viewers. Plus, the demo has only dropped to as low as a 0.27, with last night’s reunion putting the icing on the ratings cake with a massive 0.42. If RHOBH wants to top Season 11 in the ratings, however, it will have to earn a 0.54 in the demo or higher for either Part 2 or Part 3 of the reunion. No pressure, ladies!
Bravo fans are clearly into The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and despite some asking for cast changes ahead of Season 13, the network is unlikely to make too many changes with numbers as good as these ones.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Wednesdays at 8pm ET/PT on Bravo, with The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City taking the 9pm hour each week.
