You would think another table was flipped.
Many, many people tuned in to Monday night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” pulling in record ratings for the network that launched the five-city reality franchise.
This episode featured a showdown (once again) between Teresa and Danielle. Danielle was called a [expletive], Teresa's home was said to be in foreclosure, a chase ensued, heels were broken and then, lo and behold, Danielle’s hair was pulled (but, strangely, not by Teresa - Ashley jumped in and did it for her.)
About 3.2 million of you tuned in to watch this, because you apparently could see the fight coming from two weeks away – the previous episode had all the appropriate build-up to ensure viewers that yes, there was going to be some sort of smackdown, or at least some thrown furniture.
As a result, Monday night's episode will now go down in history as the highest-rated non-finale episode for the series.
It was also a great night for the loveable Andy Cohen. The "Watch What Happens: Live" episode following "Real Housewives" on Monday was the most-watched late night program ever for Bravo, EW.com reports, with 2.4 million viewers.
