Bravo isn’t waiting around for Season 3 of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” to finish before it locks down the women for another season. The network announced Tuesday (June 7) that the New Jersey gals are coming back for a Season 4.
Pulling the former Manzo “thorn in their side,” Danielle Staub, from the cast and adding Teresa Giudice’s contentious sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, and cousin, Kathy Wakile, this season became a winning formula for the network. The Season 3 premiere on May 16 earned the network’s highest rated season premiere ever with 2.02 million viewers 18-49 and 2.87 million viewers total.
It isn’t lost on us that this announcement comes just as “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” moves to Sunday nights at 10 pm ET – it definitely helps to get the word out. It replaces “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” which just earned its highest rated episode of the series with Sunday’s (June 5) finale attracting 2.88 million total viewers.
So, Sunday nights should still be a fertile ground for viewers. And we can’t imagine that the audience won’t show up on Sundays to see where Teresa’s feud with her family goes next.
Are you glad to hear that the New Jersey housewives have another season to go off the rails?
