Each Reality TV Ratings report includes the live ratings for cable lifestyle reality shows and docuseries airing on networks like Bravo, MTV, TLC, and VH1.
Shows are ranked based on the demo (adults 18-49) as opposed to overall viewers because that group is more valuable as a demographic. For more information visit our Ratings page and if you would like to suggest a show for us to cover, please Contact Us.

The RHOD Season 5 premiere bombed in the reality TV ratings on Bravo on Tuesday night, scoring a dismal 0.12 in the demo and 337,000 viewers, returning down from the year prior and failing to crack the top 50 cable shows for January 5, 2021.
The Real Housewives of Dallas was down over 50% in the demo, with the Season 4 premiere — the last to feature original Housewife LeeAnne Locken — earning a 0.26 and 678,000 viewers back in September 2019.
While lower ratings for Dallas isn’t completely unexpected as it has been the lowest-rated franchise for years, these numbers aren’t good on any level.
The night was dominated by TLC, however, with My Big Fat Fabulous Life seeing a slight increase to a 0.29 and 1,100,000 viewers, and Welcome To Plathville earning a 0.21 and 1,009,000 viewers.
Over on MTV, the Teen Mom 2 reunion earned a 0.23 and 525,000 viewers, down a tick from last week’s season finale.
