On the reality front, Bravo plans to repurpose NBC reality show The

Another original documentary, The Animated Century, airs Sept. 26, and
it will trace the last 100 years of animation in film.

Bravo added off-nets of The West Wing to its schedule this week. So
far, the drama is drawing above-average crowds. For its premiere 11 p.m. play
Aug. 10, West Wing attracted a 0.7 rating and 563,000 viewers, up
triple-digits from Bravo's usual marks. The 7 p.m. episode did not draw as well
but still doubled Bravo's season-to-date average.
