‘Kennedys’ Miniseries Sets a Ratings Record

Apr 5, 2011  •  Post A Comment

The troubled miniseries "The Kennedys," which was cut loose by the History Channel and has been criticized by historians for problems with accuracy, has provided ReelzChannel with a ratings record, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker blog.

Sunday’s debut of the eight-hour miniseries was watched by 1.9 million total viewers in its original airing along with an encore that aired immediately afterward, the story says. The first airing provided a 1.7 household rating, which was beyond the network’s goal of a 1.0 rating.

That made "The Kennedys" the most-watched program in the five-year history of ReelzChannel, the piece notes.


  1. Just think what it could have done if anyone knew how to find Reelz.

  2. Reelz, thank you, great miniseries. Would not have watched if not for all the hype.
    Worth watching. Disenchanted with History Channel’s censorship of the arts.
