Nanny trial boosts Court TV

NEW YORK — The Nanny Murder Trial yielded Court TV’s best Nielsen ratings since the heyday of California vs. O. J. Simpson in 1994.

On Oct. 23, 27 and 28, the days when the nanny, Louise Woodward — a 19-year-old British au pair on trial for the murder of the 8-month-old baby in her charge — took the stand to testify, Court TV’s 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. coverage scored a 0.7 rating. That rating easily beat three other cable networks that carried the testimony: CNN, MSNBC and Fox News Channel.

On Nov. 4, Court will present live coverage of the 10 a.m. hearing in which the defense will try to get Woodward’s conviction reduced from second-degree murder to manslaughter.
