Bravo's 'Millionaire Matchmaker' woos most viewers ever in season finale

January 12, 2011 |  5:58 pm

Pattistanger Bravo's "Millionaire Matchmaker" wrapped its fourth season Tuesday with its highest-rated episode ever.

Dating consultant Patti Stanger's reality series averaged 2.2 million total viewers, according to the Nielsen Co. That's a 63% increase compared with the Season 3 finale in April.

"Millionaire Matchmaker" started with modest ratings by Bravo standards, but the network seems to be rewarded by sticking with the show and slowly building an audience for Stanger, who's been described as the Simon Cowell of dating shows.

The series still has a ways to go before it matches other Bravo franchises such as "Real Housewives." When Teresa Giudice angrily flipped a table in the season finale of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," Bravo scored 3.5 million viewers.

Tell us what you think of Stanger and "Millionaire Matchmaker."
