Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List is a reality show starring Kathy Griffin and airing on Bravo. The show made its debut in August 2005. The show follows the struggle of self-proclaimed "D-list" celebrity Kathy Griffin to climb the Hollywood ladder. This often includes scheming for publicity with staffers Jessica, Tiffany and Tom. Her relationships with her parents and her husband (from whom she is now divorced) have also been heavily featured. The first season of the show was nominated for a 2006 Emmy Award in the category "Outstanding Reality Program." The second and third seasons were likewise nominated, in 2007 and 2008 respectively, and won both times.

The third season premiered in 2007 with the highest ratings for the show, with approximately one million viewers. The fourth season in 2008 was the first expanded season, with ten episodes.[1][2] The fifth season of the show premiered in 2009 with almost one million viewers, making it the network’s highest rated Monday original series telecast ever in all demographics. The premiere was also up double digits among adults 18-49 versus the season four premiere.[3]

Past seasons of the show have aired on the cable TV channel Arena in Australia, E! in the UK, and in Canada on The Comedy Network and the Toronto-based independent station Sun TV.


Origin of the title

Griffin had titled her first Bravo comedy special The D-List (2004), to imply that her pull as a bottom-feeder celebrity was so low, she didn't even make the "C-list." The special was such a hit that the network later approached Griffin to film a reality series based on her celebrity-bashing comedy.
