Rowe's Debut Sets Original Series Demo Mark for CNN

Mike Rowe's new show set the pace for CNN among the news demo.

With its 9 p.m. premiere on Oct. 8, Somebody’s Gotta Do It averaged 943,00 watchers, according to Nielsen fast nationals data, a total that included 507,000 adults 25 to 54.

That delivery eclipsed the 330,000 of those watchers who checked The Hunt With John Walsh’s during its July debut to stand as the best premiere audience with the demo for one of CNN’s original series.
