Interest in "The Kennedys" appears to be waning on ReelzChannel.
The third installment of the controversial miniseries developed and then dropped by the History channel averaged 841,000 viewers on Tuesday night, according to Nielsen data supplied by the network.
Thats down nearly 35 percent from Sundays premiere, which averaged 1.3 million viewers for its two-part premiere, according to Nielsen.
According to a press release issued Monday, Sundays premiere was watched by 1.9 million viewers, the highest ratings in the networks five-year history. But that number was actually the combined viewership of the premiere plus one repeat airing, said a ReelzChannel spokesperson.
According to final Nielsen numbers, the two-episode, two-hour premiere was watched by 1.3 million viewers.
Last nights episode Bay of Pigs pulled in a total of 1.7 million viewers over the course of its premiere and three repeat airings.
