“Real Housewives Of Atlanta” Racks Up Best Season Premiere Numbers In Bravo History
People love those Atlanta peaches! The Real Housewives of Atlanta season seven premiere on Sunday had the highest ratings of any premiere in the network’s history, tallying 3.83 million viewers overall and 2.2 million among adults ages 18 to 49. The show bested last year’s premiere by 20 percent.
The premiere spent much of the time focused on Apollo Nida’s legal troubles, but also gave us Kandi’s married name (Burruss-Tucker) and gave us a look at Nene’s preparations for her role in the Las Vegas show “Zumanity.” (You can read the full recap here.)
The show’s premiere numbers also outdid CBS’ Madam Secretary, but they were exceeded by ABC’s Once Upon a Time.
RHOA was also the number one reality show on social media with 171,000 tweets.
