LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Yet another dramatic sparring between show newbies Kenya Moore and Porsha Stewart attracted big increases for Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
Sunday’s episode attracted more than three million total viewers. The Season 5 finale saw a 33 percent increase over last season’s finale among the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demo (about 1.9 million viewers).
The fifth season, which also saw the departure of original castmember Kim Zolciak, has averaged more than three million viewers an episode, a seven percent increase over last season.
With this season’s numbers, “RHOA” holds its position as not only the franchise’s most-watched city, but also the network’s most-watched series. “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is Bravo’s second most-watched series of the franchise.
In light of the show’s success, Bravo has announced a three-part reunion, with part one kicking off next Sunday at 8 p.m., followed by a “Secrets Revealed” special, which basically sounds like its usual “lost footage” episode.
