Fashion Queens – Season 1 Ratings

Fashion Queens Returned the same week as Don't be Tardy

Full Season Summary

Back on March 11th, 2013 Bravo Media announced a limited three week run for Fashion Queens to air Sunday nights at 11:30pm, after the highest rated episode of WWHL of each week. At the time we wrote:

Fashion Queens has been given a prime spot in the schedule as at 11:30pm last Sunday, a repeat airing of The Real Housewives of Atlanta garnered 1.m viewers and an 18-49 demo of 0.50, and thus Fashion Queens will have to rate close to that to have much chance of seeing an extension beyond its initial three week run.

And sure enough, with it debuting to 881,000 viewers and growing its audience by over 100,000 each week, it reached that goal and its run was extended when Bravo Media announced their new programming line-up at the April Upfronts.

With just a one week break to re-launch and re-tool the Fourth Episode of the elongated season aired Sunday April 14th, 2013.

Fashion Queens” is produced by Embassy Row with Michael Davies as Executive Producer and True Entertainment with Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh and Lauren Eskelin as Executive Producers and stars Derek J and Miss Lawrence from Atlanta and Bevy Smith from New York City, as hosts.

Update May 14th, 2013

Despite the declines earlier in the evening, Episode Eight of Fashion Queens still ranked in the Nightly Cable Top 100 TV shows with 862,000 viewers tuning in and 0.40 in the 18-49 demo. After 8 episodes, Fashion Queens is averaging 982,000 (Demo 0.40) at 11:30pm and we doubt anyone would have imagined ratings that high when the show was first optioned.

    Bevy looks like the mom from the show Goodtimes… This show reminds me of the skit Damon Wayans and David Alan Grier did on the show in living color….I absolutely love Derek J and Ms Lawrence
