Ratings: Bravo’s ‘Real Housewives of NYC,’ ‘Southern Charm’ Picking Up Steam

Despite going up against some high-profile season finales on the broadcast networks, Bravo’s slate of reality programs had a great week on the ratings front, including a series high for “Southern Charm” and some season bests for “Real Housewives of New York City.”

According to Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates, “The Real Housewives of New York City” remains top dog for the network this spring, with its latest episode last Thursday averaging 2.2 million viewers, up 4% week to week. The show, which will continue into summer, shot up week to week by 13% in adults 18-49 (to 1.2 million) and 11% in adults 25-54 (to 1.4 million) for its best results of the season.

Mondays continue strong with “Southern Charm” and “Real Housewives of Dallas.” Midway through its third season, “Charm” hit a series high in total viewers (1.7 million in L+3) while garnering 932,000 adults 18-49 and 1.09 million adults 25-54. It was up week-to-week by about 15% across the board.

“Real Housewives of Dallas,” a newcomer to the “Real Housewives” franchise, averaged 1.38 million total viewers in its sixth week, up 10% vs. the previous week. It matched its highest delivery to date in adults 18-49 (802,000), growing 16% vs. last week.

In its third week, new Wednesday series “Below Deck Mediterranean” delivered its best L+3 ratings to date among both adults 18-49 (803,000) and adults 25-54 (925,000) while drawing 1.4 million total viewers. It shot up from its May 10 episode by more than 40% in both demos

And on Thursday, “Million Dollar Listing New York” delivered its second consecutive season high and third straight week of growth among total viewers. It drew 736,000 adults 18-49, 874,000 adults 25-54 and 1.6 million viewers overall.
