Clearly, viewers are not bored yet. “Real Housewives of Atlanta” brought home 2.7 million viewers Thursday night, the most for any “Real Housewives” franchise debut.
And that’s far more than the first episode of last fall, which attracted just 656,000 viewers, though interest grew steadily until the finale. That tension-packed special took in 2.8 million viewers.
In comparison, the season two premiere of ‘The Real Housewives of New York” opened at 1.6 million and the season two premiere of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” took in 1.1 million viewers.
The show also drew more than 1 million page views on bravo.com.
Including the 11 p.m. rerun, nearly 4 million people watched Sheree Whitfield’s little outburst with so-called party promoter Anthony Shorter.
I’ll have local numbers next week. I’m sure the show landed in the top 20 in Atlanta.
