'Green River' a killer for Lifetime


Lifetime Movie Network scored Sunday night with the premiere of its first original miniseries, "The Capture of the Green River Killer."

Part 1 of the mini gave the 10-year-old cable channel its most-watched telecast ever, averaging 2 million viewers at 8-10 p.m. Sunday, according to Nielsen Media Research.

The premiere also delivered record numbers in the key adult demos, including 25-54 (989,000), 18-49 (832,000), women 25-54 (658,000) and women 18-49 (577,000 viewers).
