The RHOBH Season 12 premiere beat Season 11 in the live ratings, according to just-released numbers.

Episode 1 of the new season earned a strong 0.33 in the P18-49 demo and 1,151,000 viewers in the ratings according to Nielsen, enough to beat Season 11’s 0.32 and 949,000 viewers back in May 2021.

The RHOBH Season 12 premiere also pushed Watch What Happens Live to record numbers in the ratings, with the Andy Cohen-hosted talk show generating a 0.22 and 795,000 viewers, a massive live audience for that show.

Bravo will be happy with the live ratings for RHOBH, as some interesting numbers have come in for the network as of late. Just this week, The Real Housewives of Atlanta returned below expectations, failing to generate even 1M live viewers. For comparison’s sake, The Real Housewives of New Jersey premiered to a 0.35 in the demo and 1,099,000 viewers when it debuted back in February, meaning RHOBH topped that in viewers but not the all-important demo.

The episode heavily focused on Dorit Kemsley’s home invasion and the Housewives rallying around her for support. The season also stars Lisa Rinna, Garcelle Beauvais, Kyle Richards, Erika Jayne, Crystal Kung Minkoff, Sutton Stracke, new Housewife Diana Jenkins, while Kathy Hilton and Sheree Zampino will appear as official Friends of the Housewives.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills airs Wednesdays on Bravo.
