"RHOA" Nabs Record Reunion Show Ratings With 4.13 Million Views + Andy Cohen BANS Props!
Well, it looks like Andy Cohen and Bravo got exactly what they wanted...all by allowing a hostile environment that provokes a group of black women to brawl on national tv. The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" reunion show--Part 1--nabbed record ratings for the network. Deets inside, plus the extra tardy response from Andy about props...
The Housewives and Bravo can now give themselves a pat on the back. They accomplished their mission of getting top ratings by any means necessary. And all of Bravo's promotion of the fight between Porsha and Kenya paid off.
Sunday's cable ratings are in and according to Zap2It, "RHOA" reunion won the night with 4.13 million viewers. This beats out the previous reunion ratings queen -- "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" -- who had around 3.8 million in a previous season. It even slightly beat out round 1 of the NBA playoffs on TNT Sunday night.
And now that the good folks involved got what they wanted after allowing Kenya Moore to provoke cast members with bullhorns and scepters in their personal space and laughing it up throughout the reunion show, Andy Cohen tweeted this tardy statement about the future of reunion shows:
It's official - no more props at reunions.
