Real Housewives of Atlanta

It hits series high in total viewers, rules as cable's No. 1 show of the day in key demos

Powered by the hot “Real Housewives of Atlanta” franchise and the premiere of “Blood, Sweat & Heels,” Bravo delivered its highest-rated night ever in key demos Sunday.

The 8 p.m. episode of “Real Housewives” averaged a 2.1 rating/6 share in adults 18-49 and a series-best 4.52 million viewers overall, according to Nielsen, beating out ABC’s “The Bachelor” special in the demo and finishing behind only a football-boosted Fox for its timeslot. It was cable’s No. 1 program for the day in adults 18-49, 25-54 and 18-34, as well as all key female demos and total viewers.

“Housewives” led into the debut of “Blood, Sweat & Heels” (1.1/3 in 18-49, 2.47 million viewers overall), which became Bravo’s highest-rated series premiere among all key demos in network history and was cable’s No. 2 show of the night in 18-49. The show follows a group of up-and-coming women in New York’s elite circles of real estate, fashion and media.

And at 10 p.m., the season finale of “Thicker Than Water” averaged a 1.0 rating in adults 18-49 and 2.29 million total viewers — establishing series highs in key demos.

    Talk about garbage television. Looks like the girls are going down on the creative side. This franchise is getting old and tired. Much preferred the Vancouver girls more dynamic.

    luv Rhwoa. NeNe/Candy my favorites. poor Fakedra was unable to rescue her damsel in distress verbal onslaught from Cheeky Chuck coming to his wife defense, murdering his manhood, character and Fakedra all in one swoop. gee Mynique, what a man.But in all honesty he was 50% of the ratings for the night. Had my girl Candy been there she would have “blowed up on his a**”. Note: Mynique please correct the spelling of your name. It does not fit your beauty nor hopefully your intelligence. keep the drama coming. Cynthia I know you love your man, but please separate your income, deny him access,because he will break you financially and emotionally. the guy is selfish and clearly has personal demons and doesn’t seem to care about you. 1. He wants to get his own place 2 and 3 he bought building and a Mercedes without informing you. 4. he probably already has a chick or chicks on the side. And though I love Nene She is not best person to discuss your daughter with. Mama Joyce
    You need jus a Lil no Jesus. Though I clearly understand you watching out for Candy she’s a grown woman. You’re always scowling I wonder why. You may not be, but you look and act evil.Peace /bottom line.com.
