Last night’s unveiling of Strange Inheritance With Jamie Colby clocked Fox Business Network’s biggest premiere ratings yet.
The first of two back-to-back episodes, about the Black Swamp baseball card find, clocked 289,000 viewers at 9 PM – 44K in the news demo. An average of 315,000 viewers – 49K in the demo – watched the second episode, about a guy who left his farm to two retired TV actors who did not know him.
FBN announced in December that Jamie Colby was set to host Strange Inheritance, a story-driven primetime reality series. The show, which examines real-life stories of unconventional inheritances, will air back-to-back half-hour episodes Mondays through Thursdays, with new episodes bowing Mondays and Tuesdays. Fox News reporter and America’s News Headquarters co-anchor Colby will look into unusual circumstances ranging from a family trying to keep a 900-acre bug museum in business to the discovery of a rare 1913 Liberty Head nickel. Strange Inheritance is produced by Towers Productions (Gangland, American Justice). FBN also will air Strange Inheritance Unpacked, a behind-the-scenes look at how each story unfolded, at 9:30 PM Wednesdays and Thursdays.
