Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, pictured, earned its most-watched season and episode in franchise history on Wednesday, Oct. 23 with over 1.7 million total viewers and got picked up for season seven. Meanwhile that same night, Oxygen's Preachers of L.A. delivered a series high among key demos.

Bravo Media earned its most-watched Wednesday of the year in primetime and total day and Oxygen Media delivered its best Wednesday primetime in network history with P18-49.  Bravo was fueled by the finale of Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles which delivered over 1.7 million total viewers, 915,000 P25-54 and 793,000 P18-49, according to Nielsen.  This marked the highest-rated season and episode of the franchise among all key demos, up double-digits with 26 percent in P18-49, 17 percent in P25-54 and 17 percent in total viewers versus the prior week’s episode (10/16/13).  Season six averaged 1.3 million total viewers, 693,000 P25-54 and 591,000 P18-49, compared to season five which averaged over 1 million total viewers, 645,000 P25-54 and 578,000 P18-49. Based on the franchise success, Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles has been picked-up for a seventh season right after the network announced the greenlight for the Million Dollar Listing Miami installment. 

Oxygen delivered its best Wednesday primetime ever with P18-49 driven by a new episode of Preachers of L.A., which was the network’s highest-rated episode of the series among all key demos, delivering 1.2 million total viewers, 634,000 P18-49, 415,000 F18-49 and 221,000 F18-34, according to Nielsen.
