BRAVO MEDIA RANKS #1 AMONG P18-49 ON SUNDAY NIGHT

Kandi RHoNJ Game of Crowns

Great Camera Deals

Brave Media’s PR department have just issued their press release heralding Sunday night’s ratings for RHOA: Kandi’s Wedding, Married to Medicine, The Real Housewives of New Jersey & Game of Crowns all of which we’d reported on earlier, but it is always good for you, our loyal readers, to see that the ratings we post at BravoRatings.com are accurate.

Interestingly enough the release (copied in full below) doesn’t draw any ratings comparisons with other spin-offs, but that’s probably because although RHoA: Kandi’s Wedding beat out the overall audience total when compared with Bethenny Frankel’s first season spin-off Bethenny’s Getting Married?, Kandi’s P18-49 total of just over 1.2m fell almost 150,000 short of the 1.35m that Frankel attracted back in June 2010.

In the press release detailed in full below Bravo Media claimed they were the “ranked #1 versus ad-supported cable entertainment networks in primetime among P18-49″ which means that they must not recognize The History Channel as one, because it was The History Channel that won the prime time audience in P18-49 on Sunday night.
