NEW YORK - May 7, 2010 - It's never a dull day in Manhattan, and as the drama escalates on "The Real Housewives of New York City," so do the ratings. This week's episode of "The Real Housewives of New York City" scored the highest rated non-reunion episode of the entire series among all key demographics, according to Nielsen Media Research. The episode delivered 1.57 million adults 18-49 and 2.25 million total viewers, up 18 percent across the board versus the previous week and pacing to be the highest rated season for the series, averaging 1.27 million adults 18-49 and 1.87 million total viewers through ten episodes.

Additionally, the Bravo "Talk Bubble" saw substantial week-over-week gains during last night's "The Real Housewives of New York City" episode, garnering a 53 percent increase in page views, 37 percent increase in video streams, and a 29 percent increase in uniques, versus the prior week.

The #RealHousewives on Twitter has trended - worldwide - every single week since during season three, and #RealHousewives usage has quadrupled since the "Talk Bubble" went weekly.

Bravo's late-night watercooler sensation "Watch What Happens: Live" continues to surpass the competition, beating E!'s "Chelsea Lately" and TBS's "Lopez Tonight" by double digits for four consecutive weeks with 810,000 adults 18-49 and 1.13 total viewers.
