CNN BEATS FOX NEWS IN PRIME TIME DEMOS — AGAIN!

CNN BEATS FOX NEWS IN PRIME TIME DEMOS — AGAIN!

CNN Has Now Topped Fox in Prime Time for 6 of the Last 11 Months

CNN is within 5% of Fox for the Month in Total Day Demos

New Day Crushes MSNBC’s Morning Joe in Crucial Political Month

CNN was the top-rated cable news network in July in prime time. This was the sixth time in the last 11 months that CNN has beaten Fox News in adults 25-54 in prime time. The last time CNN had that many wins over Fox News in prime time in any 11-month period was 14 years ago. CNN’s win came in a month of major news – the two political conventions, attacks on police in Dallas and Baton Rouge, an attempted coup in Turkey and terror attacks in France and Germany – once again proving that CNN is the clear choice when news happens.

July was CNN’s second most-watched month in prime time in eight years and the network is on track to have its most-watched year ever.

CNN pulled within 5% percent of Fox for the month in total day demos, the smallest gap (tied with October 2008) between the two networks in over eight years (since February 2008).

Among all cable networks, not just news, CNN was the second most-watched in total viewers for the month in prime time and number five among adults 25-54. FULL POST

HOLY HELL Lands at CNN Films for September

HOLY HELL Lands at CNN Films for September

Will Allen reveals life inside mysterious Hollywood sect in film that made theatrical debut at Sundance Film Festival

CNN Films Holy Hell

CNN Films will premiere HOLY HELL on Thursday, Sept. 1 at 9:00pm and 11:00pm Eastern, the network announced today.  The film reveals the compelling story of life inside Buddhafield, a mysterious spiritual community that originated in the 1980s in West Hollywood.  The film is directed by Will Allen, himself a member and the unofficial documentarian of the sect for 22 years.

The close-knit Buddhafield aspired to an artistic utopian communal life, led by an enigmatic, charismatic guru, Michel.  Buddhafield members pursued his vision for fulfillment while living together, exploring nature, and performing together.  Gradually, several Buddhafield members came to grow disenchanted with Michel, including Allen, and allege emotional manipulation and even physical abuse by Michel.

Throughout his years among Buddhafield, Allen filmed life from within the group.  After what Allen describes as “many painful years” living among Buddhafield, he grew disillusioned, ultimately leaving and taking many of his films with him.

Allen’s resulting film is as revealing as it is terrifying.  HOLY HELL offers a mesmerizing look into how powerfully attractive a spiritual sect like Buddhafield can be, and how alluring a powerful personality like Michel can be in the universal search for meaning and purpose that all humans seek.

In addition to the premiere broadcast, HOLY HELL will encore Saturday, Sept. 3 at 8:00pm and 10:00pm Eastern.  For additional content about HOLY HELL, please visit: www.CNN.com/HolyHell. FULL POST
