Pot the Focus of New CNN Original Series

CNN is getting in the marijuana business… sort of.

The network today announced a new original series called “High Profits,” which will focus on a Colorado couple who hope to be the first ever “moguls of marijuana.”

“High Profits,” debuting in 2015, features Brian Rogers and Caitlin McGuire — apparently former Alaska news anchor / marijuana enthusiast Charlo Greene wasn’t available — who own the Breckenridge Cannabis Club.

The eight-part series, produced by Bat Bridge Entertainment, will examine the booming industry that is legalized marijuana. We’ve seen in the past the marijuana-related programming does very well with viewers. Here’s a preview:


“High Profits” joins “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown,” “This is Life with Lisa Ling,” “Somebody’s Gotta Do It with Mike Rowe,” and “The Hunt with John Walsh” as part of CNN’s acquired series programming.

Mike Rowe Makes CNN History with Debut of ‘Sombody’s Gotta Do It’

Robin Meade Mike RoweAccording to Nielsen Fast National Data, Mike Rowe‘s Somebody’s Gotta Do It is CNN Original Series’ best premiere ever in the A25-54 demo, averaging 507,000 viewers, coming in second to “The Kelly File” which drew 544,000. Rowe also drew 943,000 total viewers in its debut last night at 9pmET.

Rowe’s new show passes the series premier of “The Hunt with John Walsh,” which drew 330,000 in the demo and 989,000 total viewers in its July debut. Final numbers will be in after 4pmET.

Rowe’s new show features people, who have jobs that aren’t necessarily desirable, but are vital. The show is unscripted, unrehearsed and features a unique theme song.

Mike Rowe: ‘Somebody’s Gotta Do It,’ Isn’t Another ‘Dirty Jobs’

MikeRoweIceSculptureCNN toasted their newest host Mike Rowe at Hudson Mercantile on the far West Side of Manhattan tonight.

Next Wednesday Rowe takes his bow on the network with his new show “Somebody’s Gotta Do It.” Rowe says it’s not a continuation of his old Discovery Channel show “Dirty Jobs,” but rather an extension of a segment he did on “Evening Magazine” back in the early 2000s on San Francisco station KPIX.

“‘Dirty Jobs’ focused through the lens of dirt. This show will focus through the lens of people,” Rowe says. While the show is more than a decade in the making, getting it on CNN has taken considerably less time.

On his first day in January 2013, new CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker spotted Rowe dining at the Landmarc in Time Warner Center. “I sat down and I said to him, ‘We want you on CNN.’ And here we are 18 months later. It took a little while, but here we are.”

Rowe says he told Zucker all he needed was “some jet fuel and an hour a week. One hour. One single hour where there’s absolutely, positively not going to be any bad news… Unless of course something breaks, and then I get it,” Rowe jokes, recognizing CNN’s primary mission.

Rowe says CNN is a great fit for his brand of reality TV, which he says has devolved over time. “CNN has always been a non-fiction network, with an eye on news,” he says. “But what’s going on in the rest of the industry, I’m not sure. I joked with Jeff, ’The duck’s have a dynasty, the amish have a mafia and honey’s got a boo boo.”

August 2014 Ratings: CNN Ranks #2 in Total Day and Prime, Up Most Year-Over-Year

A busy news month gave CNN the most growth of the cable news networks in August. CNN was up +46% in total viewers and up +43% in A25-54 viewers for total day viewing finishing #2 behind Fox News.

The ratings for August 2014 (Nielsen Live + Same Day data):

  • Primetime (Mon-Sun): 629,000 Total Viewers / 214,000 A25-54
  • Total Day (Mon-Sun): 503,000 Total Viewers / 154,000 A25-54

In primetime, CNN was up +39% in viewers and up +60% in the demo vs. August 2013 which was a comparatively slow news month. CNN

Anderson Cooper 360” was up +38% in viewers and up +73% in the demo. At 10pmET, “CNN Tonight,” which last year was an “AC360″ re-air, was up +49% in viewers and up +70% in the demo. “New Day” topped MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” with a +14% advantage in total viewers and +66% lead in the demo. And the network continues to see success with its original series: “The Sixties,” which wrapped its eight-episode Thursday run in the middle of the month. It was the network’s most-watched show drawing 726,000 viewers. “The Hunt with John Walsh,” was #1 in its Sunday 9pmET time period in total viewers and the demo.

Even with a strong August, CNN is delivering its least-watched year since 1996 in Total Day among total viewers. Year-to-date CNN is ahead of MSNBC in total day in both total viewers and the demo.

CNN’s release after the jump…
