"When the stay-at-home orders happened in late March, Bravo quickly figured out how to edit and do post-production remotely — and even to shoot programs such as Andy Cohen’s nightly talk show, Watch What Happens Live, from his home, as well as filming explosive reunion episodes over Zoom for Real Housewives of Atlanta, Shahs of Sunset and Vanderpump Rules," says Variety's Kate Aurthur. As Bravo's executive vice president of production Shari Levine put it: "There has been a seamless quality to our shows, because we were able to keep going, and able to get them all on the air." According to Aurthur, "the network's nimble pivot has brought Bravo its highest ranking ever in the key sales demographics of 18-to-49 and 25-to-54. In those demos in primetime, Bravo is No. 3 among cable entertainment networks (excluding news and sports) — behind only TLC and TBS. Among women in those age groups, Bravo is No. 2 overall (behind only TLC), including the news and sports cablers. The Denise Richards-focused drama on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has made that show the year’s top-rated cable program on Wednesday nights; Below Deck Mediterranean has been hitting series-high ratings, with a recent episode drawing an audience of more than 2.7 million in delayed viewing."
