'Whale Wars' Season Three Finale Brings Strong Ratings For Animal Planet
Animal Planet’s Whale Wars series finished its strongest season yet with an exciting two-hour finale last Friday that snagged a number of eyeballs.
During the first hour, which saw Pete Bethune attempt a citizen’s arrest of a Japanese whaling captain, more than 1.5 million people tuned in, giving the network the #4 spot in the highly coveted 18-49 demographic. Things got even better for the second hour focusing on the aftermath of Bethune’s arrest with more than 1.8 million viewers and a tie for #1 in the 18-49 demo.
All of this adds up to the very real conclusion that season four is all but confirmed for next summer.
The Sea Shepherd’s next campaign in the Antarctic to be filmed (most likely) by camera crews kicks off this coming December.
