"48 HOURS: THE CORN RAKE MURDER" IS SATURDAY'S #1 PRIMETIME BROADCAST WITH VIEWERS

"48 Hours" Posts Week-to-Week Gains in Viewers and Adults 25-54

48 HOURS: "The Corn Rake Murder" was Saturday's #1 primetime broadcast with viewers, according to Nielsen live plus same day ratings for Saturday, Sept. 26.

The broadcast delivered 3 million total viewers and 576,000 adults 25-54 viewers. 48 HOURS was up +560,000 in total viewers (+23%) and +11% in adults 25-54, when compared to the previous week.

Saturday's broadcast featured correspondent Jim Axelrod and 48 HOURS' investigation into the strange death of Amy Mullis and the case against her husband, Todd Mullis. Amy Mullis was found in a shed on her family's Iowa farm with a corn rake sticking out of her back. The tool had four steel tines, but doctors who examined her found six puncture wounds. Police started investigating Mullis' husband after learning she was considering leaving him. However, Todd Mullis had an alibi - their 13-year-old son.

It's a case that shook a small Iowa farm community. The investigation revealed what had appeared to be a good marriage was very troubled. A divorce could have split the family apart and could mean loss of the farm, which was worth millions. Todd Mullis was arrested and charged with Amy's murder. In September 2019, Todd Mullis went on trial, and 48 HOURS examines the dramatic outcome.

48 HOURS: "The Corn Rake Murder" is produced by Betsy Shuller, Lisa Freed and Lauren Clark. Marc Goldbaum is the development producer. Kat Teurfs is the field producer. Gary Winter, Greg Kaplan, Michael McHugh and Diana Modica are the editors. Peter Schweitzer is the senior producer. Nancy Kramer is the executive story editor. Judy Tygard is the executive producer.
