How can I get air dates and times for Bravo shows?
You'll find complete show listings for today and every day for the next week in BravoTV.com's show schedule.back to top ^
Why don't my TV listings match Bravo's schedule?
Bravo offers two feeds, Eastern and Pacific — which enables programs to start at the same time for viewers on both coasts. However, most satellite services and some cable systems offer the Eastern feed regardless of the time zone where subscribers live. In that case, viewers need to subtract hours (3 for Pacific, 2 for Mountain) from the time listed.back to top ^

If I write to Bravo, will my letter or e-mail get to the Bravo staff?
All e-mails and letters are read by someone at Bravo. Learning what you like and don't like, when we've done well and when we've fallen short of your expectations, helps Bravo determine what kind of programs to produce, how best to promote and schedule them, how to keep you informed of changes, and how to build, update, and improve our site. Unfortunately, because we hear from so many viewers, it's impossible for us to send a personal response to every e-mail. One possible source of a direct response: If you post a comment on Andy's Blog (the blog written by Bravo exec Andy Cohen), there's a good chance that he will answer.back to top ^
