Barbra Boosts Bravo

Barbra played like a diva Sunday for Bravo.

A two-hour conversation with Barbra Streisand grabbed the highest rating ever in the 10-year history of Bravo's Inside the Actors Studio series. Host James Lipton's interview with the singer/actor/director/producer pulled a 1.36 household rating and some 1.14 million viewers.

The Streisand interview topped the previous high for Bravo's signature series -- an August 2000 cablecast with Harrison Ford -- by 579,000 total viewers and 0.4 ratings points, according to the network.
