The success of the network is attributed to the increasing viewership and multiple hit series that premiered this quarter, from "Work Out" and "Million Dollar Listing" to the stellar "Project Runway", capping a year-to-date in which more shows have delivered over one million viewers than any other year in Bravo history. The announcement was made today by Lauren Zalaznick, President, Bravo

In addition, Bravo is pacing as the #1 most educated cable entertainment network among adults 18-49 and 25-54, year to date.
