There are just two remaining episodes of this record breaking fifth season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta after the second hour of their reunion aired Sunday. Kim Zolciak joined her former fellow RHoA wives for a session on the couch, Sunday giving her an extra boost of exposure as she prepares for her own premiere of Don’t be Tardy … tonight, Tuesday at 9/8c.

Last season 8,907,000 people aged two years and over, watched the first airing of the three reunion episodes and with this year’s Part 2 attracting 3,524,000 total, of which 2,282,000 were aged 18 to 49 years (18-49 demo 1.8), at 9/8c this Sunday, the fifth season cumulative audience is already at 7,157,000 viewers. Next week sees the third installment and then on April 28th the formerly named Lost Footage episode will air, now called ‘Secrets Revealed‘.

Purveyors of Pop, the co-producers of Married to Medicine must be thanking their lucky stars that their show was given the prime time slot right after RHoA. Purveyors of Pop also produced The Real Housewives of Miami, which scored its two highest ratings on Sunday nights when it followed RHoA, but languished on Thursdays for its other 16 episodes. The boost that RHoA has provided to M2M is incalculable at this stage but will become clearer once RHoA drops off the schedule in May.

On Sunday at 9/8c M2M retained a whopping 75.5% of its lead-in as a massive 2,661,000 viewers (demo 1.3) of which 1,588,000 were aged 18-49, tuned in setting a new series high. Through four episodes M2M is averaging an incredibly impressive 1,935,250 (demo 0.95) people aged 2 years & over, which is higher than The Real Housewives of Orange County is currently achieving and very close to that of the third season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

RHoA repeated at 10pm scoring an additional 2,191,000 viewers and that was 42% higher than last week’s equivalent repeat airing.

Andy Cohen returned after a one week break and welcomed Julie Benz and Iyanla Vanzant into his SoHo clubhouse. The absence of a Bravolebrity seems to have have slightly effected his audience rating, as with 1,381,000 viewers (demo 0.6), it declined by 12% over Sunday March 31st, when Kandi Burruss appeared.

After a one week break Bevy Smith, Miss Lawrence & Derek J returned as Bravo Media’s Fashion Queens, after they averaged 990,000 viewers in their initial three episode run. Despite their marginally reduced lead-in, they shot to a new high as 1,112,000 (demo 0.50) tuned in for the fourth episode, which pushes their average above 1m viewers.

Last Sunday Bravo Media was the #1 Cable Network in the 18 to 49 and the 25 to 54 year aged demos, and this Sunday they will have topped that. All around, from 7pm through until Midnight, this Sunday was an absolutely brilliant night for Bravo TV and look for their Press Release heralding all of these ratings but highlighting Married To Medicine’s incredible 2.66m viewers, soon.

    I guess it is true that conflict and drama are what the fans want because that was we got on M2M last Sunday, it prompted me to read and comment on their blogs for the first time. Of course it only makes sense to air it with RHOA since both shows feature a primarily African American cast.
