Ratings: ‘RHOC’ Season 16 Reunion Sees Boost, Still Down Compared To Season 15

The RHOC Season 16 reunion saw an increase in the weekly ratings while still down compared to Season 15, according to just-released Nielsen numbers.

Part 1 of the RHOC Season 16 reunion earned a 0.22 in the P18-49 demo and 873,000 viewers on April 20, according to Nielsen. This is even in the demo compared to last week while seeing a slight increase in viewers. (Episode 17 scored a season-low of 732,000 viewers just last week.)

While seeing a slight boost in the weekly ratings, this is still quite a bit lower than the season high generated back on December 8th (0.34/1,024,000) and much lower than Part 1 of the Season 15 reunion that aired back in January 2020 (0.33/1,081,000).

Still, Bravo will be happy that the RHOC Season 16 reunion seems to have re-generated some interest in the season, and it looks like the ratings may have levelled out after dipping through the last few episodes. Fans are attentively watching the numbers after the network announced a reboot of The Real Housewives of New York City, after that show saw a decrease in live viewers year-over-year and mixed fan reaction to the storylines on Season 13.

Compared to other Bravo shows currently on the air, RHOC Season 16 sits behind The Real Housewives of New Jersey, which has generated strong demos and over 1 million live viewers in the ratings multiple times throughout Season 12. Another franchise, Below Deck Sailing Yacht, is also having a strong third season, consistently leading Monday nights and also hovering around the 1 million mark. That said, with ratings down over last year and fan reaction somewhat mixed, expect to see some cast changes when the series returns to the network with another season later this year.

The Real Housewives of Orange County stars Heather Dubrow, Shannon Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, Jennifer Armstrong, Noella Bergener, and Emily Simpson, and airs Wednesdays on Bravo.
