Which Bravo Shows Will be Renewed in 2014?

Lately, I’ve been getting some questions about whether or not specific shows will be returning for new seasons in the new year. With SO many new and returning shows having aired in 2013, there’s a lot to stay on top of. Lately, Bravo has taken to announcing a show’s renewal pretty immediately after the season ends, but that isn’t always the case. So, it can be difficult to figure out if any given Bravo series will be returning and I completely understand why so many fans have questions about the future of their favorite shows.

A lot of what I do in making predictions about the future of any series is a guessing game. Did this show have enough drama? Did that show have too much controversy? Not enough? Has so-and-so been spotted filming since last season wrapped? What has he/she been saying on Twitter? Ultimately, though, it’s become apparent to me that most of the renewal decisions come down to the numbers. The important question is: how many people tuned it?

To answer this, I’d like to introduce you (if you aren’t already familiar) to a very informative site called Bravo Ratings. It is run by none other than Simon van Kempen, former Househusband on The Real Housewives of New York City.

Yep, that’s the one! Pleather pants not-withstanding, Simon covers Bravo TV like none other. Whenever I have a question about how a particular series is doing ratings-wise, Bravo Ratings is my first stop. He creates the most engaging and accessible content about what, otherwise, might be a very dry subject:  the numbers behind television network exec decisions.

So, to answer the question about which Bravo shows will be renewed in 2014, let’s turn to Bravo Ratings. This post is from a couple of months ago but I find myself going back to it time and again. I’m going to share with you the chart of all charts, the holy grail of Bravo renewal secrets. Simon has ranked every Bravo series from 2013 (up until this was published on October 30) in order of the size of its audience. When you look at it this way it becomes pretty clear which shows will and which won’t make the renewal cut. For his insight and analysis, check out the full article here.

What do you think of Simon’s predictions? Do you think it’s really as much of a numbers game as this seems?
