And so we have have it, as the finale of the longest EVER season of a Real Housewives franchise has finally aired (it would have been the thirty-second episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Sixth Season). The fifth and final episode of the Mama Joyce v Todd Tucker battle has aired and a wedding was thrown in to boot! On Sunday morning prior to this episode airing I had estimated that its audience would total approximately 3,000,000 P2+ viewers with 1,600,000 of them aged between 18 & 49 years and so how did I do? The 90 minute finale which aired at 8pm was actually viewed by 2,820,000 viewers aged 2 years and over with approximately 1,480,000 of them aged between 18 & 49 years scoring 1.17 in the 18-49 demographic. In the end both demographics fell slightly below my estimate and I overestimated by 6.0% for the P2+ audience and 7.5% for P18-49. While it’s true that this episode’s ratings were much lower than those achieved by The Real Housewives of Atlanta – Season 6, they are by far the highest for any Real Housewives’ spin-off.

The end of season average for RHOA: Kandi’s Wedding closes averaging 2,490,400 P2 viewers and 1,288,200 P18-49 which is 62% & 76% higher respectively than I Dream of Nene: The Wedding at the same stage and 82% & 90% higher than Tamra Barney’s OC Wedding spin off. A lot of that is due to the prime Sunday night scheduling but not even Nene’s nuptials which did air on a Sunday (as opposed to her regular Tuesday night), rated as high as Kandi’s Wedding’s.

Full Season Summary

The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi’s Wedding is Burruss’ second spin-off after her failed The Kandi Factory aired last year and it’s interesting that Bravo Media are confident that it will be draw sufficiently high ratings to warrant their prime, prime-time, time slot. Presumably they’re hoping that by adding ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta‘ to her show’s title, that RHoA’s viewers will stay with it & watch, but I wouldn’t be so sure. Nene Leakes’ wedding spin-off I Dream of Nene: The Wedding aired on Tuesday nights and through its seven episode run (the last two episodes originally aired as one episode in a two hour block), averaged 1,533,143 (731,286 aged 18-49 – Demo 0.59), and Burruss will need to significantly exceed Leakes’ ratings for her show to be considered a success given its Sunday slot.

Assuming that Kandi’s wedding spin-off will be an eight episode long season, then it’s worth looking back at how those equivalent eight Sundays fared last year. The fifth season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey debuted Sunday June 3rd, 2013 and its first eight episodes averaged 2,464,750 total viewers with 1,416,500 of them aged 18 to 49 years – Demo 1.11. To date the highest rated Real Housewives spin-off remains the first season of Bethenny Frankel’s Bethenny’s Getting Married? (of course that question mark now seems apt), which aired on Thursday nights in 2010 and averaged 1,794,400 viewers (demo 0.84). While I expect that given Kandi’s time slot she should exceed that I think it will be a VERY tall order for her to match RHoNJ’s ratings, but I guess we’ll know in little over a month’s time.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi’s Wedding” is produced by True Entertainment with Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin and Carlos King serving as Executive Producers. Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker also serve as Executive Producers.

Network Description

Viewers can save the date as Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker have decided to tie the knot against vocal family opposition that played out during season six. Each episode follows Kandi and Todd as they plan a larger-than-life “Coming to America” themed wedding ceremony, signifying the couple’s initial introduction in Africa. The two are confident that they can pull off their dream wedding without the help of a wedding planner – and in only five short weeks. Adding to the pressure of a major time crunch is the reality that family drama is never far away. Kandi and Todd are hosting his mother at their house prior to the wedding and are faced with her opposition towards the outspoken Mama Joyce. Will there be a clashing of mother- in-laws and will Kandi find the strength to stand up to Mama Joyce, or will her powerful influence jeopardize the bride-to-be’s fairytale wedding?
