Sunday night was a great night for Bravo Media’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.” People really wanted to see what would happen following the much-talked about pillow talk saga last week, which is why the February 10th episode was the most-watched in “The Real Housewives” franchise history, according to a Bravo press release. More than 4.6 million total viewers tuned in Sunday night and in 18-49 year-old demos, more than 2.6 million people watched, an increase of 18 percent in both demos from the previous episode (1/26/14), according to Nielsen.
RHOA was even successful that night online. The site’s page had a 26 percent increase in page views, 45 percent jump in page views per unique visitor and 17 percent boost in streams from the prior week’s premiere day. Again, another record–its best Sunday of the season to date for page views and video streams on BravoTV.com. It was also the #1 most social cable entertainment premiere of the day for tweets per unique author as well as the #1 most tweeted cable entertainment reality premiere of the day with almost 194,000 tweets and almost 48,000 unique authors.
So will the next episode continue the boost in viewership? From the messiness expected it seems likely. In the Feb 16th episode we’ll see Kenya planning a grand masquerade ball and trying to patch things up with NeNe, the guest of honor. Kenya also plans a bachelors’auction for NeNe’s favorite charity, but of course things go astray when it appears NeNe might not show up. Porsha, meanwhile, is preparing for her make-or-break audition for Kandi’s musical as Mama Joyce returns to turn up the drama yet again and stick her nose in Kandi and Todd’s relationship.
