Ratings Are In for Controversial ‘Kennedys’ Miniseries

Apr 13, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Viewership for the controversial miniseries "The Kennedys" peaked Sunday with the finale on ReelzChannel, when it was watched by 1.4 million viewers, reports Joe Adalian in New York Magazine’s Vulture blog.

In the end, despite months of publicity leading up to the program’s airing, the miniseries "turned out to be something of a non-event in terms of ratings," Adalian writes. Reelz is in half as many homes as the country’s biggest cable networks, the story points out, which limited the program’s audience.

The audience also skewed toward older viewers, with the finale earning a 0.3 rating with viewers under 50 years old, the piece notes.

    I wonder how many teenagers are reading New York Magazine right now…
    This mini-series got people to find out there was a channel called ReelzChannel.
    I think it worked out well for them.
    The mini series was very interesting and I am glad I was able to see it.
