Real Housewives: Bravo Adds Fifth Night of Programming, RHOA To Move To Sundays

Sundays are about to get crucial.

Today, Bravo announced their plans to add a fifth night of original programming to their slate, picking Sunday to lead off the week, THR’s Live Feed reports.

The cable network has chosen The Real Housewives of Atlanta to start off the week on Sundays, leaving behind its current Monday at 9 PM ET/PT time slot. The Atlanta installment of the addictive series will be followed by a Sunday edition of Watch What Happens Live, which will also continue to air on Thursdays as well. The Real Housewives of Atlanta will replace the current Law & Order: Criminal Intent reruns that air on Sunday nights.

“We’re doing this now that we know we have a firm following for Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Francis Berwick, President of the Bravo Network, told Live Feed. “We have been reducing our reliance on acquisitions and building our original programming — all those good things that differentiate us.”

The switchover will begin November 7th with Real Housewives of Atlanta airing at 10 PM, with Watch What Happens Live Sunday Edition premiering right after at 11 PM.

“We want to start the week earlier. This means each night is a promotional platform for the next night and it becomes like a domino effect that strengthens our schedule,” Berwick explained.

With The Real Housewives of Atlanta heading to Sundays, we are introduced to another jam-packed night of television. Will RHOA and WWHL be able to take the heat from network shows like Brothers & Sisters, Sunday Night Football, and CSI: Miami, while holding off other cable entries like AMC’s The Walking Dead and anything on HBO during that hour? Time will tell.

Another question is which reality series will win in the head-to-head battle this sets up – RHOA or Football Wives on VH1? Chime in with your pick in our Poll!
