The Kennedys Are A Win For Reelz Channel

| Filed under: TV NewsKatie Holmes


Ask not what a plagued miniseries can do for you - but buy it with the hope that it will bring you exactly what you hope it will!

Such is the story for the Reelz Channel who set a record last night with their first two hours of The Kennedys. The world premiere of the miniseries averaged 1.9 million viewers — a record for the basic cable channel that reaches just 60 million homes. Reelz CEO Stan E. Hubbard released a statement this morning on the success of the series, saying:

“Viewers across America showed their ongoing fascination with the Kennedy family and, specifically, their desire to see such a star-studded cast in the highly-anticipated ‘The Kennedys’. In acquiring The Kennedy’ our aim was to give viewers an opportunity to watch an incredible movie event with massive star power and to also put a spotlight on our network like never before.”

Mission accomplished. Let's hope the momentum keeps up for the rest of the week!

We know what the critics thought about it, but how about U? Did U tune in to see Katie Holmes fill out a pillbox hat?

    I've never heard of Reelz and I get about 500 channels.

    It had more commercials than Oprah…

    Holmes stinks (although she looks the part), but the show is good. Pretty even handed account. Not sure what all the uproar was about. Nobody ever bought the "Kennedys as saints" rep anyway. Especially the old man.

    Katie is such a prude and acts like a lost little girl all the time, she can't be happy with that moronic husband of hers he's such a wanker. Everything she has done has failed or had bad reviews, she's pretty brave or stupid to keep trying at it even though it is obvious she has only ever been famous for one show, and one show only.

    Can't wait to what Ep 3 tomorrow on ReelzChannel! It was great…

    Completely agree with you Tallguy10. She is a dead ringer for jackie but is dead as far as her personality. The show is pretty good. They don't seem to be sugar coating the ugly side (which I suppose is what the family didn't like and managed to get The History Channel to dump the series.) jack, Bobby, Rose and Joe Sr. are superb.

    I subscribe to basic cable and did not have Reelz, but all of a sudden I had it the day before the series started!!! I love Greg Kinnear ever since he appeared in Talk Soup on E! back in the 90's. Katie Holmes as always is superb. It was interesting to see JFK portrayed as a womanizer, I really did not expect that. I can't wait for the rest of the series!!!
