The Hunt with John Walsh on CNN got off to a strong start Sunday night, debuting at #1 in its time slot at 9 p.m. ET with 330K in the 25-54 demo and 989K total viewers. That put the show up 141% in the demo and 21% in total viewers against Fox News. Compared the MSNBC, CNN was up 63% in the demo and 174% in total viewers.
In comparison to the prior four Sundays, CNN increased its own performance 96% in the demo and 89% in total viewers.
During a press luncheon last week in New York City, Walsh, who hosted America’s Most Wanted for 23 years on Fox, said his new should would pick up where his old show left off, continuing the search for fugitives and missing people, but this time with an added dose of interactivity through social media.
