Project Runway 2’s finale is Bravo’s most-watched show ever with 3.4 million viewers

Last night’s finale of Project Runway 2 on Bravo was watched by 3.4 million viewers, “making it the most viewed single telecast in the 20-year history of the network,” Bravo said in a press release.

Of those, 2.5 million were ages 18 to 49. According to Bravo, the finale “also set records for the highest delivery of women 18-34 (1.1 million) and 18-49 (1.7 million) as well as delivering more women 25-54 (1.4 million) than any other show on cable last night.”

That’s also a significant increase from the season one finale’s ratings: a 70 percent increase in total viewers, an 88 percent increase for viewers 18 to 49, and a 102 percent increase for viewers 18 to 34.

All of this basically means we’ll be seeing Project Runway for years to come.
