With the record ratings gained from Season 4 of Millionaire Matchmaker which concluded in January 2011, it was a quick turn-around for Patti Stanger and her crew, as just eight months later the fifth season was rushed out. While this season rated fairly well, it never reached the highs of the prior one with six of the 15 episodes scoring less than 1m viewers. The highest rated episode was the first part of the reunion, which aired on Tuesday November 29th. To be fair to Patti, this fifth season was continually moved around Bravo TV’s schedules as episodes aired on Thursdays, then a Sunday, back to Thursday and finally to Tuesdays, for the final six episodes.

The season ratings low was episode 11 when just 736,000 viewers tuned in (ranking 0.40 in the 18-49 demo), and the season high more than doubled that; 1,548,000 viewers (18-49 Demo 0.70). Overall, this 5th season saw its total audience drop -29.86% versus Season 4 and are larger -35.51% reduction in the ad buyers’ coveted 18-49 demo. Despite this reduction in viewers, a Sixth Season was commissioned which aired in 2013.

Intuitive Entertainment and Bayonne Entertainment, Inc. produced “The Millionaire Matchmaker” for Bravo. Mechelle Collins, Kevin Dill, Robert Lee, Kathryn Vaughan and Patti Stanger served as executive producers.
