Court orders more Dunne

Show received highest rating for episode of reality series

Court TV has renewed “Dominick Dunne’s Power, Privilege & Justice” for another seven hourlong episodes, following the record ratings racked up by the docu series in its first two runs.

“This is shaping up to be a signature show for the network,” said Henry Schleiff, CEO of Court TV.

The series bow June 19 harvested a 1.5 rating in Court TV homes, the highest rating ever for an episode of a reality series on the network. The rating fell off by 20% last Friday, which is well within the typical decline for the second episode of a breakout series.

Dunne, the bestselling author and columnist for Vanity Fair, narrates the episodes and participates in all phases of the Court TV production.

Court TV’s original order was for six episodes, and Schleiff said the network has options for many more beyond the additional seven.
