The Real Housewives of Orange CountyNBC Universal’s efforts to utilize iTunes as a first-run marketing tool continues apace. This time, they’re offering Bravo’s new seven-episode miniseries, The Real Housewives of Orange County (a more derivative show title, I have yet to see) in iTunes. Best of all, not only is this another iTunes premiere (the show will first air tonight at 10/9C), but it’s also being made available for free.

So for those of you who enjoy reality soap operas or those who enjoy free downloads or both, this is another one for you.
