Ratings Down for Eliot Spitzer’s Current TV Debut

The unexpected debut of “Viewpoint with Eliot Spitzer” drew a disappointing 47,000 Total Viewers and 10,000 A25-54 viewers to Current TV on Friday night.

Spitzer’s debut ratings mark a drop from “Countdown with Keith Olbermann,” which averaged 152,000 Total Viewers and 42,000 A25-54 viewers for the month of March.

The 8pmET timeslot on Friday evening included CNN’s town-hall special “Beyond Trayvon: Race and Justice in America,” which placed second in the A25-54 demographic and third, behind MSNBC’s “The Ed Show,” in Total Viewers. Bill O’Reilly‘s Fox News program was first in both ratings measurements.
