As Jury Decides Jodi Arias’ Fate, HLN Continues to Rack up the Ratings

The jury in the Jodi Arias trial will begin its second full day of deliberations today. Meanwhile, the sensational Arizona murder case is continuing to draw big viewership for HLN, which has given the most courtroom and analysis coverage of the cable news networks.

Arias, who spent 19 days on the witness stand, has confessed to fatally shooting her boyfriend Travis Alexander in June, 2008, but she says she doesn’t remember much after that, including how Alexander ended up with 27 stab wounds.

All of this has made for compelling TV for trial junkies. As the case made its way to the jury late last week, HLN was the number one cable news network in both Total Day and Primetime among younger viewers Thursday and Friday. (HLN and FNC tied for the day Thursday each drawing an average of 254,000 viewers).
