It drew the biggest overall audience for the timeslot since February 15. The show was also #1 in the younger viewing demos of A18-34, A18-49 and A25-54.

    • Page Six wonders if CNN and new anchor Chris Cuomo got special coverage from the new BEACH magazine, which is edited by Chris’s wife Cristina Cuomo. Nope, says the Mag: “It’s a no-brainer that the host of a highly anticipated new morning show, his boss, and some high-profile colleagues, who all have houses at the beach, would be on Beach’s media power list regardless of who is editing the magazine.”
