‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ Boosts Bravo to Strong Sunday

'Thicker Than Water,' 'Watch What Happens Live' and 'Fashion Queens' all hit highs too

AMC has dominated the cable ratings wars on Sunday this fall with “Breaking Bad” and now “The Walking Dead,” but Bravo has been making some noise of its own.

This past Sunday, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” hit season highs for Bravo (1.6 rating/4 share in adults 18-49, 3.70 million viewers overall), according to Nielsen, while its post-primetime talkshow “Watch What Happens Live” drew its largest audience of the season as well (1.37 million).

“Real Housewives” was No. 1 in all of cable in the 18-49 demo for the 8 o’clock hour, and beat every entertainment series on television in its timeslot — including Fox’s premiere of “Almost Human” and CBS’ “The Amazing Race” — in women 18-49  (2.6/7) and 18-34 (2.4/8).

Bravo’s newest series, “Thicker Than Water,” averaged a 0.8 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.85 million viewers in the 9 p.m. hour, up from last week’s 0.7 and 1.56 million. And following “Watch What Happens Live” at 11:30 p.m., “Fashion Queens” drew its largest aud to date too (1.075 million).

From 8 to 11 p.m. on Sunday, Bravo was cable’s No. 2 network, behind only AMC, in adults 18-49 (1.1) and total viewers (2.4 million).
