‘Real Housewives’ promo bills it as ‘one of the greatest shows of our lifetime’

A promo airing on Bravo for its New York City iteration of its “Real Housewives” franchise bills the show — twice — as “one of the greatest shows of our lifetime.”

  • The spot mentions that line twice as a critic’s quote — both with on screen text and via the announcer.
  • It’s not immediately clear if the quote is meant to be sarcastic or facetious or to be taken seriously.
  • Ironically, the source of the quote is listed as “E! Online” — which is the digital component of Bravo sister network “E!”
  • Both networks are owned by NBCUniversal.
