Bravo’s packed Sunday night of programming gave the network the top spot on cable in the demo advertisers most salivate over.
The network saw strong numbers across the board for the night, which included “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” a bonus “Shahs of Sunset” episode, and late-night talkers “Watch What Happens Live” and “Fashion Queens.”
At 8 p.m., Mama Joyce’s scrap with Kandi Burruss’s friend and assistant while the Atlanta castmember tried on wedding dresses, delivered “RHOA’s” highest rated episode across all key demographics this season so far. It delivered 2.15 million viewers in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demo. For Bravo’s target demo of Adults 25-54, it earned 2.4 million viewers and 3.8 million total viewers.
The fallout for Reza Farahan’s spat with a fellow gay Iranian played out on the “Shahs of Sunset” bonus episode at 9 p.m. It attracted nearly 2 million viewers, a 35 percent increase over the previous episode.
“Shahs” also topped its former season highs across all key demos. It was up 37 percent in 18-49 over the previous Tuesday’s episode with 1.1 million viewers and saw a 37 percent increase in 25-54 with 1.2 million viewers.
Additionally, “Watch What Happens Live” at 11 p.m. netted its highest rated episode of the season. Burruss appeared with “American Idol” champ and friend Fantasia Barrino and discussed their thoughts on Mama Joyce’s outburst, among other topics.
Compared to the previous Sunday’s episode, “WWHL” was up 21 percent for total viewers with 1.9 million and up an astounding 41 percent in the 18-49 demo with 1.1 million viewers.
Another new episode of “Shahs” airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. in its regular slot.
Finally, “Fashion Queens” capped off Sunday evening at 11:30 p.m. with a series-high in the 18-49 demo with 766,000 viewers and a 22 percent increase over the previous week’s total viewers with 1.4 million tuning in to the late-night style show.
