Rough Second Night For The Kennedys

| Filed under: TV NewsKatie HolmesBusiness Blitz

kennedys ratings down on second night

..Guess Katie Holmes' pillbox hat didn't do it for everyone!

Earlier this week we were pleased to report that Reelz Channel's The Kennedys two-part premiere averaged an impressive 1.9 million viewers overall!

We had hoped that the momentum would keep up, but unfortunately it has not.

The third episode of The Kennedys averaged 841,000 viewers, which was a 35 percent decrease from Monday's premiere (which was actually 1.3 million viewers minus a repeat airing)

Quite a fall from the premiere, which marked the “highest ratings in the network’s five-year history.”

Hopefully things will pick up as the series continues…

Did U tune in for episode three of The Kennedys? Or did U cut out after the premiere?

    Wow, so maybe the dozen or so networks that turned this series down knew what they were doing?



  2. 2

    All shows start with many viewers and with the time it decreases to the fixed viewers. This is just cause the show was new and people were eager to watch it, it happens with all, everybody watches the pilot/first episode and later drop.

    Too bad. I love Greg Kinnear. I don't know why he would have signed up for this. Holmes is so clearly not a Jackie O type. The casting agent on this should be unemployed.

    Why are you hoping that the ratings for this pile of crap pick up?



  5. 5

    This show so far is funny to me in a soap opera type way. I don't take anything as truth from this I'm just watching it though I have to say Greg Kinnear as JFK is a tad bit eerie. Some shots he starts to look exactly like him.

    Yes, people didn't like what they saw and I'm not talking about Katie Holmes. The fact is that America has kept the Kennedy's up on a pedestal for so long, that anything that remotely refutes that perfect image of Camelot is frowned upon. America, wake up! The Kennedy's did a lot of good for this country, but they weren't perfect. Does anybody remember Chappaquiddick?

    Alas, my TiVo couldn't find the series on any of the 800-some channels I get. What on earth is Reelz Network?

    it's because it doesn't make the kennedys look like angels (they weren't). a lot of americans idolize them, so why would a major network pick up a series that pans the kennedy family? the critics panned katie because she seems like the easiest/weakest link, but i think they were just doing using her to make the movie look bad because they disagreed with the overall content of the movie.
