Series Premiere of REDRUM Scores Record Ratings


Network Pulls a Hat Trick with Premieres on Three Consecutive Nights Breaking the 1.0 Rating /1+ Million Viewers Benchmark


On Tuesday (1/15), Investigation Discovery’s new series REDRUM set a new record to become ID’s biggest night in network history for delivery in HH (857k), P25-54 (511k), W25-54 (329k), and P2+ (1.051 million), driven by the debut of the new series REDRUM, which set a telecast record in Prime among P25-54 and P18-49. The series debut was ID’s 2nd highest delivering telecast in Prime for P2+ (1.415 million).


The network is killing it this week with several premiere episodes surpassing the 1.0 ratings benchmark and delivering over a million viewers back-to-back including Sunday (1/13) night’s episode of On The Case with Paula Zahn (1.12 HH), delivering more than 1 million viewers among P2+ (1.125 million) and Monday (1/14) night’s True Crime with Aphrodite Jones (1.09 HH).

    Good for them since this one of the channels I watch the most. Now if only the channel would go HD finally…

  • Gaius Bolling

    this network is on fire. Redrum promos were running on other channels besides investigation discovery. I can see how it did so well. BTW what provider do you have Barb because I have the ID channel in HD on verizon fios.

  • Steve-A

    Yea Barb. I have ID in HD with Time Warner. Your provider must just not carry it.

  • disney rocks

    @Barb- My provider (Bright House Networks) has an ID HD feed channel.

  • Ijahq

    Love this channel. Definitely my go to channel when nothing else is on. Glad its doing well.

  • Barb

    I guess DirecTV is way behind the times with converting it to HD from the responses I see. Not surprising.

  • Bjm

    I also have ID in HD with Cox. One of my favorite channels. Especially on the weekend when there’s nothing else on.

  • Karla

    I am so glad to hear I am not the only one..I stumbled onto this channel a few weeks ago and I have to say it has become my go to late at night and week-ends especially.
