People Are Not Happy That ‘In Session’ Has Been Cut During Jodi Arias trial
Today is the day that TruTV trimmed its dayside court coverage In Session down to two hours a day from six hours a day. TruTV laid off a number of staffers as a result of the cutback. In its place the network is airing some acquired series, as well as replays of primetime originals like “Lizard Lick Towing.”
The timing of the move couldn’t have been worse for TruTV. While In Session typically did alright in the Nielsen Ratings, right now the “trial of the year” is happening in the Jodi Arias case, and loyal viewers have been glued to their TVs. In Session has been averaging around a half million viewers as a result.
With little warning, regular viewers suddenly had four fewer hours of coverage, and they took to the TruTV and In Session Facebook pages to vent. The comments mirror those that have been flooding into the TVNewser tip box since the change this morning:
