Bravo Picks Up ‘The People’s Couch’ to Series (Exclusive)

October trial run of the meta TV format proved to resound with Bravo's audience

Bravo is adding a new reality series to its slate, as the NBCU cabler greenlights a full 12-episode order of “The People’s Couch” for a March debut.

Series pickup follows a test run of the program in October, when Bravo rolled out three segs of “The People’s Couch,” based on UK show “Gogglebox.” In each episode, cameras are turned on real TV viewers, as audiences get a glimpse into viewers’ reactions to shows like TLC’s “Untold Stories of the E.R.”

Though based on “Gogglebox,” format is likely heavily influenced by the YouTube “reaction video” trend popularized by “2girls1cup” reaction vids that spread online in 2007/8. A compilation video of “Game of Thrones” “Red Wedding” reaction clips made waves on the internet earlier this year, making the concept more applicable to mainstream TV properties instead of just viral shock vids.

“The People’s Couch” is produced by Studio Lambert and All3Media America. Exec producers include Stephen Lambert, Eli Holzman, Tania Alexander and Aliyah Silverstein.
