Although the new series airs after E!’s biggest reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and Andy Cohen‘s For Real: The Story of Reality TV, the premiere brought in low ratings. Episode two wasn’t any better.
On March 18, after Overserved premiered on E! at the 9 p.m. time slot, TV by the Numbers revealed the show landed at #35 in cable ratings and brought in 353,000 viewers with 0.13 of the 18-49 demo. Then, the following week, on March 25, the series dropped to #106 as it moved to the 10 p.m. time slot.
As a second report from TV by the Numbers explained, episode two of Overserved brought in less than half the amount of viewers as episode one with just 169,000 and 0.06 of the 18-49 demo, which is a decrease of 184,000.
While Lisa quit her role on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills in June 2019, she has continued to appear on her Bravo spinoff, Vanderpump Rules. She also took on several new projects in recent years, including Vanderpump Dogs, which will air on Peacock, and Pooch Perfect, which premieres on ABC on March 30.
Not only did Overserved bring in low viewership, but it was also a far cry from Lisa’s past successes. For example, the lowest-rated episode of the 10th season of RHOBH garnered 1.298 million viewers in August of last year and was ranked at #4 on cable. The lowest-rated episode of the latest season of her spinoff, Pump Rules, season eight, brought in 1.049 million viewers and topped the night’s cable ratings in February 2020.
Overserved With Lisa Vanderpump airs Thursdays at 10/9c on the E! Network.
