CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker might want Kathy Griffin to take her top off more often.
CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live with Anderson Cooper and Griffin finished No. 1 on cable news among both total viewers and the key A25-54 demo in the half hour leading up to 2016, and the first half hour of it.
As we reported in the Scoreboard, CNN also won prime time in total viewers and the demo.
FNC’s All-American New Year with Kimberly Guilfoyle and Eric Bolling came in behind CNN’s special. The cable specials will come in behind the broadcast specials on ABC, NBC and FOX.
