"48 HOURS: TO CATCH A GENIUS" IS SATURDAY'S MOST-WATCHED PRIMETIME PROGRAM IN VIEWERS

48 HOURS: "To Catch a Genius" was Saturday's most-watched primetime program in viewers, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for April 18.

The broadcast was also #1 at 10:00 PM, ET/PT, and delivered 6.27 million viewers with a 1.4/04 in adults 25-54, the demographic that matters most to those who advertise in news.

Compared to the previous week, 48 HOURS added +1.13 million viewers and was up +8% in adults 25-54 (from 1.3/04). 48 HOURS posted its largest audience since Feb. 7, 2015 and its second largest audience for the season. Compared to the same night last year, 48 HOURS was up +12% in viewers and up +8% in adults 25-54.

Saturday's broadcast featured Erin Moriarty and 48 HOURS' investigation into the 1994 death of Linda Curry and the 16-year search for her killer. Thanks to some shrewd police work, Curry's husband, Paul Curry, was arrested in 2010 for delivering a fatal dose of nicotine to his wife. He was convicted in 2014 and sentenced to life in prison for her murder. 48 HOURS: "To Catch A Genius" is produced by Paul LaRosa, Gayane Keshishyan, Cindy Cesare, Doreen Schechter and Joan Adelman. Anthony Batson is the senior broadcast producer. Susan Zirinsky is the senior executive producer.
