CNN Heroes Builds on Last Year’s Viewership

TerrenceHoward_12.2.jpgCNN took a risk by airing this year’s CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute on Thanksgiving Night. And in seems to have paid off in viewership.

The show drew 1.03 million Total Viewers, making it the most-watched show of the evening and giving CNN the win for prime time (8-11pmET). CNN also built on its audience at 9pmET after airing several hours of breaking news coverage on the terror siege in Mumbai. (CNN had averaged 1.33 million Total Viewers the previous five weeknights from 9-11pmET).

In the ad-friendly A25-54 demo, Heroes drew 353,000 viewers, up 79% from last year’s 197,000.

However, MSNBC came in first in the demo averaging 396,000 viewers. The network aired MSNBC Investigates all night.

Insiders tell us discussions are already underway for Heroes ’09 with nominations being accepted beginning in January.

The Ticker: (Thanksgiving Edition): BBC, CNN, CBS…

> Tonight BBC World News America looks at how diverse cultural communities of modern America celebrate this centuries old tradition. Three Americans — a recently naturalized U.S. citizen from India, a first generation Mexican-American, and a woman whose American roots date back to the 15th century, explain what Thanksgiving means to them. BBC World News America airs at 7pmET on BBC America.

> CNN’s Anderson Cooper hosts CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute tonight at 9pmET on CNN. The show was taped before an audience of more than 2,000 at the Kodak Theatre last Saturday. The star-studded event features performances by Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys and John Legend, with awards presented by Jessica Biel, Cameron Diaz, Salma Hayek, Terrence Howard, Hugh Jackman, and Forest Whitaker.

> Before you sit down to Thanksgiving dinner think about this quote from Olympic gold medalist Michael Phelps about his eating habits: “I have to always just constantly shovel food in because I can lose anywhere from five to 10 pounds in a week.” Nice. Phelps talks with the aforementioned Cooper this Sunday on 60 Minutes. By the way, that rumored 12,000-calorie a day diet is more like 8-10,000 calories a day. We feel better now.
