This was a really good move for them, at least from this perspective.
Since ReelzChannel announced that they would be the brave souls to air the highly-controversial mini-series, The Kennedys, things have been going really well for them. Their viewership has almost doubled from earlier this year, averaging about 5.5 million viewers a week, and according to the suits, that number is bound to go up again once the mini-series actually makes it to air.
ReelzChannel CEO Stan Hubbard explained that he and his team are shooting for an audience of around 12 million people when the eight part series hits their airwaves and hopefully, that number will stick after the show is over. Stan added:
"We knew what we were getting into when we bought this. We just hope taking a risk will pay off."
So far, so good…but beware. We haven't heard from Maria Shriver in awhile. She might just be biding her time, waiting for her moment to strike and shut this thing down!
We sincerely hope she doesn't though. We have to know what the hell goes on in this movie that's got everyone in such a damn uproar!!!
