Bravo shows saw significant dips in the live ratings on Sunday night with RHOP and Married To Medicine hitting season lows and Family Karma returning down with its Season 3 premiere.
Episode 6 of The Real Housewives of Potomac earned a 0.22 in the P18-49 demo and 774,000 live viewers, a season low.
The episode, which saw the RHOP cast including Candiace Dillard-Bassett and Ashley Darby visit a winery, was down from the week prior (0.25 / 840,000).
The network moved around the Sunday night schedule to accommodate Family Karma and it looks like that may have not been the best decision.
Married To Medicine was bumped to 10:15pm for the Family Karma Season 3 premiere, which earned a 0.09 and 374,000 live viewers at 9:00pm. This is down from the Season 2 premiere which earned a 0.15 and 471,000 live viewers back in June 2021.
Part 3 of the Married To Medicine reunion earned a 0.12 in the demo and just 478,000 live viewers, making it the lowest-rated episode of Season 9. Despite the dip this week, Married To Medicine had a strong season in the ratings, hitting a season high with Part 1 of the reunion which aired during the show’s regular Sunday 9pm time slot.
While the network (and fans) may have expected higher live ratings for RHOP, Married To Medicine, and Family Karma this week, the series are all expected to grow quite a bit once DVR and delayed viewing is taken into account. Potomac, in particular, almost hit 1 million live viewers just a few weeks ago with Episode 3 earning a strong 0.28 in the demo and 911,000 viewers, a season high.
When it comes to Family Karma, Season 3 will feature quite a few pivotal — and big, for that matter —moments for the cast with Vishal Parvani’s wedding to Richa the primary focus, so the ratings will surely grow as the drama intensifies.
The Real Housewives of Potomac and Family Karma air Sunday nights on Bravo.
