Updated Friday November 15th 2013, after S03E16 Reunion Part 2 aired at 9pm on Thursday November 14th 2013.

What has recently been Bravo Media’s spare night; Thursday, was turned over to The Real Housewives of Miami last night, with a repeat airing of the Season 3 Reunion Part 1 at 8pm, the first airing of Reunion Part 2 at 9pm and then a repeat of Part 2, again at 10pm. It was only this Monday that Bravo TV decided to air both parts this week and we’ll know next week whether airing a repeat of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills next Monday at 10pm, rather than RHoM Part 2 as originally planned pays off.

At 9pm, 1,009,000 viewers tuned in for what might become the final new episode of RHoM to air, and of those 1m viewers; 561,000 were aged 18 to 49 years (Demo 0.40) and that was down -6.05% from Monday’s Part 1. However with this episode being repeated immediately afterward at 10pm (watched by an additional 547,000 viewers; 303,000 18-49 – Demo 0.20), giving viewers a choice of viewing times, it’s possible that just a single 9pm airing may have been a tad higher.

However for this season of RHoM to pull its viewership average above last season’s, it needed an audience of over 1.92m for last night’s reunion, and as you can see even over two hours combined it fell well short of that.

This season closes as the lowest rated season of any Real Housewives Franchise since the very first season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, and with ratings like that, it’s unlikely to be back for a fourth season. (see the entire season’s ratings table below)

Full Season Summary

The third season of The Real Housewives of Miami, sees more cast changes as they reduce the cast from Season Two’s seven housewives to this season’s five. Two of those seven drop back to ‘friend’ status; Marysol Patton and Ana Quincoces, Karent Sierra is cut completely and Alexia Echevarria returns as a full cast member, after spending time off camera last season concentrating on her sons’ dilemmas. She joins Lea Black, Adriana de Moura, Joanna Kruppa and Lisa Hochstein as full cast members this season.

For this season Bravo TV have upgraded RHoM to air Monday nights and so the oft used excuse trotted out last year for Season Two’s disappointing ratings will no longer be valid. For three weeks at least, RHoM will gain the benefit of a relatively strong lead-in with the reunion episodes of the eighth season of The Real Housewives of Orange County airing.

The highest rated episode for this franchise member came on a special Sunday night airing in November 2012, when it benefited from the lead-in provided by Bravo Media’s Number #1 rated show; The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and while overall Season 2 saw a reduction in its ratings versus its six episode freshman season, everyone involved will be hoping that this season can grow to at least 1.5m viewers per episode on average.

The series is produced by Purveyors of Pop with Matt Anderson and Nate Green serving as executive producers.

    I am one of the few people who adores this show and I still hope for a fourth season, which is becoming increasingly more unlikely. Season 2 was amazing and one of the best seasons of any Housewives show. The producers ruined a great cast after the explosive Season 2 reunion. Marysol was the best housewife until they downgraded her in Season 3, which made little sense. The Ana/Lea feud wasn’t allowed to play out in Season 3 and I think that caused viewers to stop tuning in. Miami always had great reunions and the Season 3 reunion was no exception. The problem was that during the main episodes, it was often awkward and obvious that the women would never hang out in real life. Building the show around Lea Black was a mistake in Season 3. It needed a popular housewife like Nene, Teresa, Lisa Vanderpump, Jill Zarin or Vicki and it had Mama Elsa, who became ill and stopped filming. Marysol’s divorce was hushed up, so she never really became the main housewife on the show. It’s a shame, because Season 2 was really promising. Also Real Housewives of Melbourne has started using the RHOM hashtag and now that Bravo is going to air that show, I really doubt Miami return.

    People don’t watch it because it’s really on at wrong times. People would watch it more if it was on after the real housewives of Atlanta if you put a strong franchise against a weak one ratings will improve. Take note bravo putting Miami on after repeats doesn’t work too well

    The statement at the bottom of this page summarizes the “reality” of the ratings of these so called “reality” shows: that the ratings are not necessarily true, are inferred from the press and other media outlets and therefore Bravo has to make this disclaimer. I think anyone wno does a , ittle homework about neurolinguistic programming and the measurable physiological effects programming has on the brain and body will see through disclaimers such as Bravo’s and realizes that the network executives have an agenda that is more related to what they or their superiors or the ABC agencies want shoved down our throats to make us a nation and world of even more brain dead zombies than we really are. We are told what to think, get our news from the military industrial hollywood complex all dressed up in slick graphics. We follow along like cattle to the slaughter and if you want to know how our “elected” representatives have gutted the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independance we need look no further than the junk we feed our minds. Raise your hand if you know what the NDA Act means, the Federal Reserve Act, who profits from the privitization of our NATIONAL FINANCIAL NETWORK from Treasury printed notes backed by precious metals such as gold to a fiat currency backed by YOUR value as a bond servant and the land and all real property within our borders. Soon we will be looking at Kim Kardashian’s used toilet paper once the 16×9 widescreen televisions are increased in size. The mousetrap is set and while we savor the cheese the kitty will come along. Stop watching this garbage. It is rotting our brains and destroying our nation. Thank you!
