Nielsen Sweeps

In a sign that Nielsen Sweep’s Months no longer hold the importance they once did, Bravo Media has a relatively lacklustre line up of programming this week and in fact on Thursday May 16the there will be no original programming airing at all.

Bravo Ratings For Week Ending Thursday, May 9th 2013

Bravo Media & Nielsen Media Logos - Sweeps November 11 - November 17 2012

Sunday May 5th began without a new episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta which had headlined Sundays since November 2012, and its loss to Bravo Media’s schedule was felt immediately. However, in an attempt to mitigate its loss, Watch What Happens Live Special – Nene One-on-One opened the evening at 8/7c.

In our weekly forecast report we had predicted that around 1.5m viewers would tune in to Nene Leakes with Andy Cohen and with 1,381,000 viewers tuning in at 9pm (demo 0.5) our prediction was off by 8%. More important though, was that that was a 43% reduction in that time-slot from the previous week’s RHoA, Secrets Revealed episode and was the first of four shows that night which all seeing lower ratings.

This Week on Bravo – No RHoA but a Nene Leakes Special, Newlyweds & Million $ Listings


Since The Real Housewives Of Atlanta returned to Bravo TV’s schedule in November 2012, Sundays have consistently been the highest rated night each week for Bravo Media. With RHoA having wrapped last Sunday, there are four Sundays until the premiere of Season 5 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and it’s up to Married to Medicine to see if they can hold down the fort. But tonight at least they will get a little help from RHoA mega-star Nene Leakes.

This week saw the final episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and thus the last week until later this year that Bravo Media would be able to air a first run episode of their Number 1 rated show. It also saw the airing of a documentary bought at the Sundance Film Festival; The Queen of Versailles as well as two episodes of The Kandi Factory, two of Dukes of Melrose and a whole host more. Despite all the ratings this week’s Bravo Ratings was one of their weakest in awhile.

This Week on Bravo – A Double Dose of Kandi and The Dukes, A Queen of Versailles & RHoA Bows Out

Queen of Versailles

Tonight sees the kick off of Bravo Media’s five nights of original programming with The Real Housewives of Atlanta bowing out via a compilation episode of clips that didn’t contribute to the main story-lines. This used to be packaged as “The Lost Footage” but is now titled “Secrets Revealed“. That subtle name changed seemed to work for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills last month, as their third season Secrets rated 55% higher than their second season ‘Lost Footage‘. RHoA hasn’t aired a Lost Footage episode in its four previous seasons, so we don’t have any statistical evidence to predict how many viewers it will attract, but our gut says it will garner around 2m viewers at 8pm tonight.
