The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills‘ season 2 premiere was a ratings bonanza, getting about 2.2 million viewers – a 42% increase from season one’s premiere.
The show also had a 51% increase in its target audience demographic, 18-49 year olds.
In case you missed the premiere, the episode opened up with the ladies (apart from Taylor Amstrong) discussing the suicide of Taylor’s husbandRussell Armstrong.
People were genuinely curious to see if the show would address his death so there’s a possibility viewership will drop in the second episode. However, Bravo did confirm that they will be showing Taylor and Russell’s marriage counseling sessions, which will get people even more curious to watch.
I thought it was handled very well. I’m very glad the show is still on!
