Panic has permeated the set of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” due to record low viewership in season 15.


The May 7, 2023, premiere brought in only 834,000 viewers for “RHOA,” reports Yahoo.com, which is historically low for the once-thriving Bravo reality show.


The show has been trending downward for the past several seasons, the publication reports. For example, season 12 averaged 1.8 million viewers, Season 13 had 1.25 million, and season 14 averaged 950,000. Contrasting this trend to the days of “RHOA” yore, when a NeNe Leakes-led cast averaged three million viewers in season seven, and it’s easy to understand why the cast is concerned.

In fact, some members are reportedly afraid they may become casualties of this development.


“They are worried Bravo will pull a recast on them as they did to the cast of the ‘Real Housewives of New York,’ ” Yahoo.com reports. “None of them feel safe, even Kandi Burruss.”

There seems to be no light at the end of the tunnel. After the paltry numbers came in for the season 15 premiere, only 738K sets of eyes locked on the “RHOA” show. The May 28 episode continued its downward spiral with only 657K fans tuning in, about 100K fewer viewers than the shaky premiere. 

Some fans remarked how Bravo replaced the entire “RHNY” cast, though they are scheduled to star in a Peacock spinoff series, “Real Housewives: Ultimate Girls Trip,” but will do so for considerably less money.

 Other fans of the show and franchise have called for the return of the castaways, such as NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks. However, Leakes’ return seems very unlikely due to the fact that she sued Bravo and called on fans to boycott the show on multiple occasions.

  1. I can not stand Marlo. I didn’t want her to get a peach. At least one of them I didn’t recognize and wasn’t interested in. Drew is cute. That’s about it. Not worth watching. I am tired of Kandi and her mean-spirited mother. Kandi is more focused on jobs than raising her young children.

  2. Tired of all the arguments & fights. They suppose to be GROWN WOMEN. Also how keep calling these shoes Housewives when 1/2 not even married. I been gave up on this crap

  3. RHOA lost its touch, after Porsha , Phaedra, Nene, left. These story lines, with Kenya, Sana, Drew, Marlo, Kandi. Are all non-Factors. Kandi, is still allowing her mother to disrespect her husband. Marlo, throwing fits, Drew, lines, just reaching. Sheree’, lines, are interesting to a point. Kenya, need to get a real life, with a real man. And Saana, track days are over. Not interested in her storyline at all…I use to tape the shoes of RHOA. No more, it’s a waste of my Video.

  4. Honestly, this show lost its fervor about 8 seasons ago but for some reason people watched🤷🏽‍♀️

  5. The storylines are boring or fictional. Marlo doesn’t even have a significant other and she’s irritating. Can we get Kim, NeNe, and Phadra.

  6. I’m an OG fan and I just finally had to stop, this season was atrociously boring. There’s literally nothing going on, each episode has more and more sidebars of their individual lives talking about nothing. NOBODY CARES ABOUT SHE BY SHERAY !!! It’s just not the same, forced is the word!
