Ratings for CNN Series Finale 'Ain't Pretty' Deadline
A CNN documentary series aired its finale last week, and the results “ain’t pretty,” reports Deadline.com. The series is “Chicagoland.”
The show, which has been criticized for “being too chummy with one of its main subjects, Mayor Rahm Emanuel,” drew 325,000 total viewers for its finale, a series low, the story reports.
“Despite CNN boss Jeff Zucker’s stated aim to broaden the definition of news on the cabler, the run of ‘Chicagoland’ was down an average of 29% in total viewers and 19% among adults 25-54 from the same period the year before,” the story reports.
