TLC is giving Lori Allen’s sturdy bridal reality show “Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta” an 11th season. It has just begun production.
After giving it a two-year hiatus, TLC brought the show back last year for a 10th season.
The show, set at Bridals by Lori in Sandy Springs and also starring wedding expert Monte Durham, averaged about 1 million viewers last year, according to Nielsen Media Research, including DVR usage for up to a week after original airing.
Only two other shows shot in Atlanta have lasted as long as “Say Yes to the Dress,” which debuted in 2010: “The Walking Dead,” which began airing the same year, and “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” which launched in the fall of 2008.
After airing on Friday nights for years, “Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta” now airs on Saturday nights when originals are on with repeats sprinkled throughout the schedule.
