The venerable CBS News show “48 Hours Mystery” continues to rule Saturday nights on broadcast TV.
Last Saturday, the show was the most-watched of the night drawing 6.78 million total viewers. It was also number one in the A25-54 and A18-49 demos. Compared to the same night last year, the show was up +13% in households, +6% in A25-54 and +8% in A18-49. It was the show best performance since December.
The broadcast featured correspondent Maureen Maher’s report, “The Writing on the Wall,” about a triple homicide in a small Illinois town. Christopher Coleman (above), head of security for well-known televangelist Joyce Meyer, was found guilty of strangling his wife, Sheri, and their two young sons, Gavin and Garett.
Tonight’s episode features Peter Van Sant‘s report titled “Ransom” about the kidnapped son of a millionaire and the wild ransom note that followed.
