watch what happens live logo


Updated Tuesday July 29th, 2014 and includes ratings for S11E121 of Watch What Happens Live which aired at 11pm on Thursday July 24th, 2014 with Kristin Chenoweth and Gayle King; Episode S11E122 which aired at 11pm on Sunday July 27th and featured RHnNJ’s twin sisters Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea and Episode S11E121 which aired at 11pm on Monday July 28th and featured RHOC’s Vicki Gunvalson and Rachel Dratch.

With last Wednesday’s episode featuring the cast of Million Dollar Listing Miami posting the lowest ratings this year, Thursday’s episode which featured Kristin Chenoweth & Gayle King and which usually is the least viewed each week, avoided that last position ranking. Kristin & Gayle were able to attract a larger audience than Wednesday and brought Andy Cohen 103,000 more viewers than the prior night’s episode achieved. However, both the 436,000 P2+ viewers with 175,000 P18-49 they had, were still lower than the current Thursday night average audience of 454,240 P2+ and 228,760 P18-49.

Sunday night saw the third post RHoNJ episode of WWHL, and whether it was the lowly rated Game of Crowns that had aired at 10pm or lack of interest in the newbies, with only 644,000 viewers in total tuning into watch Nicole and Teresa could only muster 40% of the average Sunday night audience. Of the 644,000 viewers who watched 364,000 were aged between 18 & 49 years, which is just 42% of the usual Sunday demo audience. Still at least they can say they drew more viewers than Kathy, Rosie and Vanassa managed the Sunday prior.

Monday’s show with Vicki Gunvalson from RHoC & Rachel Dratch also had Game of Crowns providing its lead-in, but with GofC doing better post RHOC than it had Sunday night, it wasn’t as much of a ratings drain as it had been on Sunday night and the 764,000 P2+ viewers who tuned in exceeded the previous Monday’s 742,000 viewers. Even better was the growth in P18-49 with 481,000 this week handily exceeding the prior Monday’s 399,000. That’s a pretty good result and was 11% higher than the WWHL’s P2+ Monday episode average this season.

Full Season Summary

Season 11 is the first full season to air since it was announced that host Andy Cohen was relinquishing his position as SVP Programming & Development at Bravo Media to set up his own production company Most Talkative as well as remain host of What What Happens Live as well hosting the Real Housewives Reunion shows.

The tenth season of WWHL which wrapped December 22nd, 2013 was the longest season to date of WWHL and totaled 114 episodes and it’s audiences ranged from a high of 1,868,000 viewers on Sunday December 6th when Fantasia Barrino and Kandi Burruss to a low of 292,000 on Thursday September 26th when Lizzy Caplan and Tony Danza where Andy’s guests.

As a rule WWHL’s ratings are best when it acts as a post-game style show for that night’s Bravo TV lineup, and therefore ratings tend to be higher on Sundays (Bravo Media best rated night each week and progressively fall away with Thursdays’ episodes always rating the lowest.

Watch What Happens Live” is produced by Embassy Row for Bravo Media. Michael Davies, Deirdre Connolly and Andy Cohen serve as executive producers.
