Good News, Bad News for Larry King Special

Jun 23, 2010  •  Post A Comment

As reported Tuesday, the good news about the Gulf disaster fundraiser that CNN aired as a special "Larry King Live" on Monday night was that it raised $1.81 million for three major charities. But on Wednesday comes the bad news about the ratings, reports Mediaite.com.

The total number of viewers for the telethon was only 600,000, putting it in fourth place among the cable news shows. By comparison, six months ago Larry King had a similar telethon to raise funds for Haiti, which did 40% better than Monday’s showing in the ratings.
