It's virtually impossible to speak of the reality television world without including Bravo in the discussion, but with successful hit shows like "The Real Housewives" and "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," there's also some misses.
Hit: Showbiz Moms & Dads (2004)
Though it only aired for one season, it spawned two spinoffs for the network and inspired copycats like "Toddlers and Tiaras."
Hit and Miss: Project Runway (2004-2008)
Its best years were arguably on Bravo, but how could they have let this gem get away from them?
Miss: Queer Eye for the Straight Girl (2005)
Unlike its predecessor, this spinoff didn't present anything new for viewers. What gal doesn't already have a gay bestie to advise her?
Miss: "Hey Paula" (2007) No one watched Paula Abdul's reality series. But, it's trashtastic reality legend nonetheless. The former Laker Girl was fired from the "Bratz" movie on-screen and later accused Bravo of "creative editing."
Miss: "Chef Academy" (2009) "Top Chef" had done well for the network. So why not create a show for amateur chefs? Fine idea, but did it have to be so contrived and over the top? One and done.
Hit and Miss: NYC Prep (2009)
This stab at bringing in a younger demo only aired for one season. But it was a well-made show that took its cue from the CW's "Gossip Girl" and continues to be a cult favorite.
Miss: Miami Social (2009)
Succeeded in making Miami a yawn. But in an attempt to salvage it for another season, "The Real Housewives of Miami" was born.
Miss: Kell on Earth (2010)
Actually well done, but Bravo overestimated the interest in sharp-tongued fashion PR maven Kelly Cutrone, who appeared on MTV's "The City" and "The Hills."
Miss: The Real Housewives of D.C. (2010)
The show is best known for White House party crashers Michaele and Tareq Salahai, but the bigger problem was that the women of D.C. society lacked the ability to let their hair down in true "Real Housewives" fashion.
Miss: 'Love Broker' (2012) Is there room on the network for more than one matchmaker? The viewers voted no. After poor ratings, Bravo pulled "Love Broker" off its spring schedule and then burned off the episodes during the summer.
