WVUE says the 0.4 ratings compares to a 0.2 for cable network TV One, which also targets African Americans. Also getting a 0.2 in New Orleans were Oxygen and BBC America. CNBC rang up a 0.1
Bounce TV has a 0.5 rating during the first week of January. Also getting a 0.5 rating for January are Comedy Central, CNN and MSNBC.
"As a local station competing in a rapidly-expanding, multi-channel universe, our challenge is to find engaging ways to reach new viewers. Bounce TV has cracked that code for us," said Joe Cook, president and GM of WVUE, in a statement. "In an amazingly-short time, Bounce TV has established itself as destination viewing for the people of New Orleans."
