ON THE "D-LIST" NO MORE, KATHY GRIFFIN POSTS BRAVO'S HIGHEST RATED MONDAY ORIGINAL SERIES TELECAST EVER
"My Life On The D-List" Season Five Premiere Delivers
Nearly One Million Viewers
NEW YORK, NY – June 9, 2009 – The season five premiere of Bravo's "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List" delivered nearly one million total viewers last night, making it the network's highest rated Monday original series telecast ever in all demographics, according to Nielsen Media Research. "My Life on the D-List" was also up double digits among adults 18-49 versus its season four premiere.
Tracking well ahead of its season four average, last night's "D-List" premiere was up 17 percent among adults 18-49 (652,000 vs. 558,000) and up 19 percent among total viewers (945,000 vs. 793,000). Season to season, the premiere was also up 15 percent among adults 18-49 (vs. 569,000).
On next week's episode of "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List," airing Monday, June 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, Kathy's scheming to snag a Grammy® nomination worked! Her CD (which happens to be titled "For Your Consideration") earns a Grammy nod for Best Comedy Album, but being nominated is just the beginning of Kathy's master plan. With the help of Team Griffin, Kathy begins cold calling former Grammy winners at their homes to solicit votes. Her obsession takes her all the way to Canada for a meeting with comedy legend, Lily Tomlin. Being one of only two women to have won a Grammy for Best Comedy Album, getting Ms. Tomlin's endorsement can only help the cause.
