Paula Zahn’s Show Closes Season Strong at ID

By kevin Comment

Tonight, Investigation Discovery airs the first season finale of Paula Zahn’s “On the Case” series. Last week’s show drew the network’s largest total viewer (557,000) and demo audience. The show’s 340,000 A25-54 demo total last Sunday was higher than than those of CNN, Fox News, HLN, and MSNBC during the same time slot (10pmET).

The program’s premiere in October was the most-watched premiere in the short history of the network and in December, Discovery decided to greenlit a second season of the show.

• In the fall, TVNewser spoke to Zahn — who’s the host and EP of “On the Case” — as well as ID president and general manager Henry Schleiff ahead of the program’s launch.
