Times are tough at CNN. At one time the cable leader in news, the network has slid backwards into a very distant second place to Fox News in terms of viewers. Now CNN tries to climb out of that hole and regain importance in the public eye, but ends up making errors such as those that occurred during the Boston Marathon bombing investigations that set the network back that much further.
But you have to give them credit - they are not going down without a fight.
The network has announced that it will continue its relationship with Anthony Bourdain, as it has approved a second season of Parks Unknown. The program, which airs on Sunday nights, has been drawing around 872,000 viewers an episode, which doubles what the network did in the same time slot last year.
“Tony and Zero Point Zero Production have created a spectacularly beautiful, informative and entertaining series for CNN that has resonated with viewers in a profound way,” said CNN Worldwide president Jeff Zucker. “In addition to its runaway ratings success, it is also quite the conversation starter, as anyone who follows social media can attest. We are so happy to announce season two, and I can assure you that audiences will love what is coming up on the show.”
The second season of the show is scheduled to premiere on September 15 of this year.
