“Sept. 9 was a Monday night for the record books,” said Jane Latman, president, HGTV. “A Very Brady Renovation delivered the phenomenal ratings we expected, and one of our newest and brightest designers, Grace Mitchell, drew a large audience to her season two premiere. We couldn’t ask for better performances from these two series.”

On digital platforms, A Very Brady Renovation also delivered a standout performance.

A Very Brady Renovation also helped HGTV GO achieve the most minutes watched in a single day on the platform for Wednesday, Sept. 11.

A Very Brady Renovation features the full-scale overhaul of the real Brady Bunch house in Los Angeles. Exterior shots of that house were often used to establish a sense of time and place for the Brady family. HGTV executed a show-stopping transformation of the home by adding 2,000 square feet to its original footprint—all without compromising its instantly recognizable street view. The house was replicated to include the iconic floating staircase, the orange-and-green kitchen, Greg’s attic, the kids Jack-n-Jill bathroom and many more memorable spaces. The Brady Bunch house will forever hold a special place in television history and American pop culture.

Also on Sept. 9, the sophomore season premiere of HGTV’s One of a Kind at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT received a boost from the impressive Brady ratings performance, delivering a .73 live plus three-day rating among P25-54. The rating was a 16 percent increase in the timeslot among P25-54 over year-ago levels and a 52 percent lift over the prior six-week time period. The episode attracted more than 5.4 million total viewers. One of a Kind stars home renovation expert and imaginative interior designer Grace Mitchell as she overhauls uninspired Fort Worth homes to reflect the personalities of the families that own them. For One of a Kind, the Sept. 9 premiere episode was the second most-streamed episode on HGTV GO from Sept. 9 to 14.
