There is no new episode of The Real Housewives of Dubai tonight. Instead, fans will get to enjoy a new episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills at its usual time slot. Usually, the new series follows right after. One viewer noticed on their television guide that there’s no new episode scheduled for tonight. Why not? Read on to learn more.
Ratings plummet as boycott continues
In November 2021, Andy Cohen announced that The Real Housewives of Dubai was coming to Bravo. In April 2022, they confirmed the cast, which includes Caroline Brooks, Caroline Stanbury, Chanel Ayan, Lesa Milan, Nina Ali, and Sara Al Madani.
The network also confirmed that The Real Housewives of Dubai would premiere on June 1, 2022. While some people were excited to learn about the diverse cast, most Bravo fans were upset. They were shocked that the network chose Dubai as the next location of the new series. The country is known for its extremist and conservative stance on human rights issues.
There was a boycott leading up to the premiere. As TV Shows Ace previously reported, about a dozen human rights groups asked Bravo to reconsider airing the new show. But, Bravo moved on with its plans despite the controversy. It turns out that the premiere didn’t do so hot as it only attracted 769,000 viewers, according to TVDeets.

This pales in comparison to the Season 12 premiere of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, which amassed 1,151,000 viewers. Ratings for The Real Housewives of Dubai have been plummeting every week. Even the Season 2 premiere of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City, even with all its own scandals, saw 806,000 viewers each week.
Is the new show at risk of being canceled? By the looks of the glamorous promos and confessional interviews, Bravo increased the budget for this lavish series. However, viewers on Reddit aren’t impressed and have boycotted the new program. They could ax the show if the ratings don’t match the budget.
The Real Housewives of Dubai isn’t airing a new episode tonight
Some fans of the show are wondering why there isn’t a new episode of The Real Housewives of Dubai on tonight. They took to Twitter to discuss the shocking find in their television guide. Bravo made the decision to delay the upcoming episode. On Tuesday, June 28, one viewer wrote, “No new #RHODubai tomorrow?!”
Another one asked, “Wait, what?” A third user chimed in and wrote, “Apparently there won’t be any new episode after RHOBH tomorrow.” Some fans aren’t happy and are calling this “sabotage”, especially in light of the declining ratings.
