On Oct. 3, Bravo released its third quarter ratings report on Media Village. The network delivered its best ever third quarter, largely due to the success of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” “Million Dollar Listing” and “The Real Housewives of Miami.” All three shows fueled the ratings and are helping Bravo to deliver its eighth consecutive best year ever.
“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” concluded its fifth season on Sept. 29. The series delivered an average of more than 3 million total viewers and made Bravo the No. 1 cable network in the Sunday 8P hour throughout the season. A multiple-part reunion special begins airing Sunday, Oct. 6. For a sneak peak at the photos from the reunion that was taped on Sept. 6, head to Reality Tea. The Enstars website posted that Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Kathy Wakile, Joe Giudice, Joe Gorga, Rosie Pierri and Dr. V., who was present on the cast members' family retreat in Lake George, all take part in the reunion.
“Million Dollar Listing NY” and “Million Dollar Listing LA” also spurred ratings success. The second season of “Million Dollar Listing NY” ended in August and its ratings surpassed those from season one. New Episodes of “Million Dollar Listing LA” are currently airing on Wednesday nights on Bravo. This season is on track to be the most-watched season of the “Million Dollar” franchise. “Million Dollar Listing NY” has been renewed for a third season and stars agents Fredrik Eklund, Luis Ortiz and Ryan Serhant. “Million Dollar Listing LA” premiered in 2006. Josh Altman replaced Chad Rogers in season 4 and Altman’s brother joined this season. Madison Hilderbrand and Josh Flagg also star in the series.
