BRAVO NO. 1 TELEVISION NETWORK IN A18-49 WITH "REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY" LAST NIGHT

Over 4.6 Million Viewers Tune In To The Table-Flipping Season Finale

New Jersey Highest Rated "Real Housewives" Season Ever

NEW YORK - June 17, 2009 - Last night, Bravo ranked as the No.1 rated television network in adults 18-49 (out-delivering all broadcast and cable competition) with the table-flipping season finale of the network's hit series "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," according to Nielsen Media Research. More than 3.47 million viewers tuned in to the 10 p.m. broadcast and an additional 1.13 million total viewers for the 11 p.m. encore of the New Jersey Housewives, for a cume of 4.6 million total viewers, breaking network records as the highest rated Real Housewives franchise telecast ever.

The season finale delivered 2.46 million adults 18-49 at 10 p.m., becoming Bravo's highest rated Tuesday telecast in adults 18-49 since 2003 (Queer Eye) and the highest Tuesday telecast ever in total viewers. An additional 794,000 adults 18-49 watched at 11 p.m. The season finale was the first Real Housewives telecast to hit over three million total viewers (on a Live + SD basis).

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" freshman season ranks as the highest rated Real Housewives series ever in all demographics, averaging 1.6 million adults 18-49 and 2.17 million total viewers. Versus the first season of "The Real Housewives of New York City," New Jersey increased 110 percent in both adults 18-49 (vs. 764,000) and total viewers (vs. 1.03 million); and compared to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta's" inaugural season, Jersey posted a 62 percent increase among adults 18-49 (vs. 990,000) and 65 percent among total viewers (vs. 1.31 million).

Online, "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" produced over 1.32 million page views, 106,000 daily unique visitors and 161,000 video streams for the finale, the site's best performance for a series finale for an individual show site finale so far this year. Traffic on BravoTV.com jumped 42 percent from last Tuesday from 1.76 million to 2.5 million total page views for the site.

The "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" ended in one of the most explosive season finales in Bravo history, but the drama is not over yet. Bravo will air four new episodes of reunion specials and extended footage with the Jersey girls. The new episodes include:

"THE LAST SUPPER," Thursday, June 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT - It was a dinner unlike any other. "The Last Supper" features never-before-seen footage, new commentary from the Jersey Housewives and their families, and a shocking post-dinner gathering that has to be seen to be believed.

"REUNION: Watch What Happens Part One," Tuesday, June 23 at 9 p.m. ET/PT - The ladies sit down with Bravo's Andy Cohen, for part one of this explosive reunion special.

"REUNION: Watch What Happens Part Two," Thursday, June 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT - A reunion special so juicy it needed two episodes - watch what happens as the Jersey ladies finally let it all out on the table.

"THE LOST FOOTAGE" - Thursday, July 9 at 9 p.m. ET/PT - Bubbies, Botox and Books - the ladies from Jersey had their share of drama, but we could only fit so much into each episode. "The Real Housewives of New Jersey - The Lost Footage" features new moments from season one with Housewives Caroline, Dina, Jacqueline, Teresa and Danielle.
