Sharyl Attkisson’s Full Measure Shows Ratings Growth in First Year

By Mark Joyella 

Full Measure, the syndicated public affairs program hosted by former CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson, begins its second season Sunday–with ratings in some markets showing significant growth since the program’s launch, TVSpy reports.

The show airs on most of Sinclair’s 162 local television stations. Nationally, ratings have increased +56 percent from November 2015 through May 2016. In Seattle, where the show airs on ABC station KOMO, ratings rose +55 percent.

In Oklahoma City and Asheville, NC, the show’s ratings doubled +100 percent. Batt Humphreys, like Attkisson a CBS News alum, is the show’s executive producer. “Season one of Full Measure proved that we could bring honest reporting to stories that much of the mainstream media ignores,” Humphreys said. “Season two will be even bigger.”
