People’s Robin Williams Issue a Best Seller

cover-435Proving that everyone loves a sad story about a complete stranger, People’s August 25th edition — honoring Robin Williams’ life and tragic death — was its number one selling issue of 2014.

Adweek reports that 1,169,800 copies of People’s Williams issue were sold. On the flip side, People’s June 16 edition, with Hillary Clinton on the cover, was its worst selling issue. It sold only 503,890 copies.

Williams’ death was also the big seller for another gossip rag — InTouch. Its August 25th edition moved 571,780 copies, making it InTouch’s best selling issue of the year.

InTouch‘s worst seller of 2014 was an issue that featured The Bachelorette’s Ashley Hebert announcing that she was pregnant. Congratulations! No one cared.
