The combination of a classic sitcom and a home makeover delivered a huge audience for HGTV Monday. brady_cast_and_hgtv_hosts_copy

Monday’s premiere of A Very Brady Renovation delivered the cable network’s biggest audience in 2 1/2 years — since the heyday of Fixer Upper. The show brings together the six surviving members of The Brady Bunch‘s cast to renovate the San Fernando Valley house used in exterior shots on the show so it looks just like the show’s sets.


The premiere delivered 3.36 million viewers, the biggest audience on cable outside of Monday Night Football‘s debut. A Very Brady Renovation‘s audience even surpassed the 3.27 million people who watched the Fixer Upper series finale the night it aired in April 2018.


The show also drew a 0.6 rating among adults 18-49. Both that and the total audience are way above HGTV’s average in the time period.


HGTV paid $3.5 million for the house when it came on the market in 2018 and plans to keep hold of the property after the series airs, possibly for use in future specials or for corporate events.
