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?
