Ratings Slide As Week Progresses
Week Ended Thursday March 14

To call Bravo Media’s Bravo Ratings a weekly slide that starts with the high of The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Sunday at 8pm and ends with the dismal ratings of Kathy at 11:3opm on Thursday, would be an understatement. To be fair, Kathy Griffin having ratings that low at 11:30pm, isn’t as bad as when she was getting similar numbers when she previously held the 10pm time slot. Read more

Updated after the Lost Footage, and final episode of Season 2 aired March 10rd, 2013

After an incredible debut season, where the Persian Prince & Princesses of Shahs of Sunset drew almost 1.3m viewers in their freshman season, which impressively included 64% of its audience or 827,333 people aged 18-49, Bravo Media re-upped Shahs for a second season and the 2nd season’s ratings continued their impressive growth. While certainly benefiting from the strongest programming lead-in Bravo has to offer (RHoA), the season two premiere doubled the audience of their freshman premiere with 2.298m viewers. With just the second part of the reunion left to air on March 3rd, this season has averaged just under 2m in total audience and almost 1.2m aged 18-49 and that’s growth of 55% & 45% respectively. And with that Ryan Seacrest can be assured he’ll ink a third season, for his production company. Read more

After three weeks of averaging less than 2.5m viewers RHoA stormed back to exceed the 3m audience mark for its 5th episode. 3,010,000 viewers tuned in at 9pm Sunday and its 18-49 demo rating grew to 1.50 as Kim Zolciak departed from the show after over four seasons. That audience increase has helped stem the ratings lag against Season 4, but season-to-date it’s still trending down -12.32% in total audience and -16.25% in the 18-49 demo. Still a return to 3m viewers for this episode is a positive sign for both the Atlanta wives and Bravo Media and hopefully that can be sustained throughout the rest of this season, although it will be interesting to see how much ratings are affected by Kim’s departure. Bravo PR’s twitter account was keen to shout out the great ratings’ news, as soon as they received them. Read more

Here’s one TV press release that didn’t need any spinning at all. This is truly a tremendous ratings return for Bravo Media and Ryan Seacrest, as less than 10 months after its freshman season premiered, Shahs of Sunset has returned with just phenomenal ratings.

Last night’s second season premiere earned 2.3m viewers at 10pm and a whopping 1.4m aged 18-49 years (a ratings score 1.10 in the 18-49 demo). As the release correctly points out, “The season two premiere was up +102% among A18-49 and up 106% among total viewers from the season one premiere (3/11/12). Compared to the season one finale (4/15/12), Shahs of Sunset was up 50% among total viewers (vs. 1,534,000).” Read more
