I read an article weeks ago that stated that the Real Housewives of Atlanta ratings on Bravo weren't doing very well. I thought that was strange being that every other source I read said they were doing amazing for a Bravo /cable show.

Then I read another article that said the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills series had the highest ratings of all the "Housewives" series'.

Then just tonight I came across yet an article on Perez Hilton's website entitled Atlanta Housewives Aren't Bringing It In The Ratings!

The only problem is that all of these articles and blogs were lying! I mean, bold-faced lies.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta is the highest rated show out of all the Housewives series. It consistently gets well over 2 million viewers while the other series barely make over 1 million viewers. 

Commentators on the article posted on Perez Hilton article exposed the inconsistency -- the article mentioned ratings for an episode of RHOA that hadn't even aired yet! What is going on here?

In fact, the latest ratings released December 7, 2010 state that the Real Housewives of Atlanta recently broke the 3 million viewers mark (3.22 million viewers to be exact). Don't believe me? See it here at TV By the Numbers.  The Beverly Hills series receives about 1.5 million viewers each week on average.

So I am not going to spend much time speculating on why some online blogs and news outlets have been lying about Real Housewives of Atlanta's ratings -- instead I just wanted to expose this ongoing lie buzzing around certain blogs and clarify that RHOA is doing just fine ratings-wise.

Again, the Real Housewives of Atlanta is and has always been the highest rated out of all the Housewives series on the Bravo channel. The gals on RHOA are extremely entertaining and well-loved -- often imitated but never duplicated.

So please news outlets stop lying on the show, whatever your reasons may be.
