Bravo is sticking with what works, renewing 16 reality shows, including seven Housewives and Housewives spin-off series—and is creating new shows with its proven characters.
The network’s press release notes that it it is “[c]ontinuing to counter industry trends” and “is the leader among the top 10 ad supported cable networks in returning series with year-over-year ratings growth in the coveted P18-49 demo.” The network is also a top-10 cable network in both the 18-49 and 25-54 demo.
To keep up that momentum, its new shows don’t do anything new, and two of them use existing personalities from Million Dollar Listing and RHONY:
- Bethenny and Fredrik Property Project, on which “fan favorite powerhouses” Bethenny Frankel and Fredrik Eklund” “tackle the ups and downs of scouting, buying and designing multimillion-dollar properties.”
- Sell it Like Serhant, a makeover/rescue format on which MDL:NY’s Ryan Serhant “puts his sales skills to the ultimate test when he answers the call of struggling sales representatives, desperate for his expertise.”
The other new shows play on familiar Bravo themes and formats:
- Southern Charm New Orleans, another version of the franchise.
- Relationshep, on which “Charleston’s most eligible and loveable singleton, Shep Rose, … ventures to various cities across the country in the hopes of finding true love and a committed relationship.”
- Love Italian Style, on which “relationship expert Diann Valentine takes five beautiful, eligible bachelorettes who can’t find a good American man, all the way to Italy.”
- A Night With My Ex shows us former couples who “will be brought together for one night in a camera-rigged apartment with no crew.”
