From The Grio — On Sunday, Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta made a new record as 2.9 million viewers and 1.9 million were adults ranging from the ages of 18-49 tuned in to watch the show’s season premiere.

Kim Zolciak, Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks, Cynthia Bailey, NeNe Leakes and Shree Whitfieldreturn for the fourth season of the series with Kim’s new love interest, new business endeavors and the season’s first fight between NeNe and Shree.

“‘Atlanta’ has been the strongest version of the popular franchise, and at least so far it does not appear as though that will be changing — though it will need to stay interesting to keep all of the viewers around,” says the Examiner.

According to a press release from Bravo, the episode was up 20 percent and 10 percent from show’s prior season premiere.

We asked Bravo why they think this specific series is more popular than the other Housewives franchises, but they have declined an answer.

Bravo also states that the Real Housewives of Atlanta was the most watched season premiere in the Real Housewives franchise history.”

      S. – LOL

      I’ve always thought that if they could just somehow inject NeNe Leakes into the “Jersey Shore” cast, that would be the No.1 rated show in the country.

      Loud, stupid, fighting black people AND white people bringing the crazy every week.
