Viewers increase by 53 percent for third-season debut of Kathy Griffin’s show

Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List‘s third season premiere was watched by 1.023 million viewers, a 53 percent increase from the second season’s 670,000, according to a Bravo press release.

Among viewers 18 to 49, the show has “a 77 percent increase over the season two premiere,” increasing from 402,000 to 713,000 viewers.

Interestingly, Kathy’s stand-up special, which preceded the series debut, was watched by fewer viewers. A total of 872,000 watched, which was more than watched her last special (652,000), but far less than tuned in the next hour for the series. Clearly, more people want to see Kathy Griffin at home than want to watch her comedy.
