Paris Hilton Interview Boosts CNN Ratings
Paris Hilton's post-jail appearance on CNN's "Larry King Live" drew about 3.2 million viewers, nearly triple the show's average audience.
Hilton's first TV chat since her release from jail aired Wednesday and gave King's show its best ratings of the year to date for a regularly scheduled telecast, CNN said Thursday. The program has been drawing about 1.1 million daily viewers.
Hilton, who spent about 23 days in custody before she was released Tuesday, told King that the jail experience prompted her to re-evaluate the role of partying in her life and that she intended to continue her "journey" of self-discovery.
