Bravo stayed at the top of the broadcast live +3 ratings for the week of Jan. 21, but it was MTV’s “Teen Mom II” that grew the most.

The network’s “Real Housewives of Atlanta” was the week’s no. 1 cable show with a 1.3 L+3 rating among adults 18-49, up five-tenths (+63%) from its initial L+SD rating. The History Channel’s “Curse of Oak Island” (1.2) came second, and grew 0.4 points after three days of delayed viewing.

However, MTV’s “Teen Mom II” (1.2) not only tied for second place with “Curse,” but also posted the week’s biggest 18-49 gain, by doubling its initial 0.6 rating (+100%, +0.6).

In total viewers, “Curse of Oak Island” took the no. 1 spot with a 4.83 million viewer L+3 audience (+1.19 million, +33%), while “Project Blue Book” raked in the most additional viewers (+1.49 million, +76%) of any of the week’s cable shows.
