After the recent Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 4 finale ended up as the lowest-rated finale ever for the series, we didn't have high hopes for the Season 4 Reunion ratings. So how did the Reunion ratings indeed turn out?

Bravo Ratings reports that this week's Season 4 Reunion Part 2 nabbed 1.96 million total viewers, with 1.15 million of those falling in the coveted 18-49 demo. That demo rating is the second highest that the show has gotten this season. Last week's Reunion Part 1 was seen by 1.71 million viewers, which is the show's lowest-rated reunion episode ever.

These numbers pale in comparison to how many people have tuned in to previous RHoBH reunions. Indeed, 2.11 million people tuned into the show's second reunion episode last season. Meanwhile, 2.39 million watched in Season 2, and 2.69 million did so in Season 1. 

And so, this week's episode appears to continue the season-long ratings decline that the show has been experiencing. So what needs to be done in Season 5 to stop the skid? Rumors have circulated that a previous cast member might return, like Camille Grammer or Adrienne Maloof. However, these rumors have yet to be confirmed. Or perhaps the show needs to fire an existing cast member?

What do you think the show should change next season to improve the ratings?
