RHOA is officially back for season 9 but how did it actually do?
This season, we lost Kim Fields but have Chateau Sheree and Moore Manor which Bravo is hoping will capture viewers interest. So how did it compare to the last season?
Numbers are out and not surprising the #1 for Sunday was The Walking Dead with 11.72 million viewers. Season 9 of RHOA premiered last Sunday and received less viewers than RHOA season 8. The official breakdown for the season 9 premiere was 2.59 million viewers vs. 2.97 million viewers from last year.
Ratings from viewers between the ages of 18-49 are also taken into account and The Walking Dead no doubt came in on top with a 5.7 rating. In comparison, Bravo didn’t fare as well with RHOA having a rating of 1.1 and the RHONJ reunion with a rating of 0.7. Personally I thought the RHONJ was far from the best so I can see why it didn’t rate so well within the targeted age group.
Bravo has to be disappointed that RHOA’s numbers declined from last year; however perhaps as storylines develop more viewers will tune in as the drama heats up. The vast majority of the ladies are divorced/single so I’m sure it will make for an interesting season and surely there is more to come.
Did you catch the premiere episode of RHOA? What were your thoughts on it? Are you surprised that the numbers were lower than last year? Will you continue watching this season based on the premiere?
