‘Assassination of Gianni Versace’ Premiere Draws 5.5 Million Viewers in Delayed Viewing

The premiere of “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” is off to a solid start on FX in delayed viewing.

According to Nielsen Live+3 data, the launch of the second installment of the Ryan Murphy anthology series drew 5.5 million viewers, including the premiere telecast, three encores, and multiplatform viewing. The premiere telecast alone accounted for 3.6 million of those viewers in Live+3, making it one of the top cable premieres of the last two years. It also ranked number one for the night of Jan. 17 in multiple demographics, including adults 18-49, and total viewers.

Of its 5.5 million viewers, 1.5 million fell in the adults 18-49 demo, making it FX’s most-watched drama or limited series premiere in Live+3 since “Legion” drew 1.8 million last February.

Nevertheless, the series has failed to come close to the record-setting numbers

The Las Vegas committee overseeing the millions of dollars donated after the mass shooting in October has expanded the scope of those that could make a claim on money, but thousands will remain ineligible to receive any cash under the final guidelines.

Scott Nielsen, chairman of the Las Vegas Victims Fund Committee, says the fund has $22 million, but that the large number of those affected by the mass shooting makes it impossible to provide everyone with a cash payout.

Sandy Hook Mass Shooting Led to 3 Million Extra Gun Sales and Spike in Firearms Deaths, Researchers Say

Almost five years ago to the day, 20-year-old Adam Lanza shot and killed 20 children and six staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. In the next five months around three million more gun were sold across the U.S. than usual, and 60 extra accidental gun-related deaths took place.

This is the first time a mass shooting has been linked to a rise in accidental deaths. Above and beyond the 26 people murdered at the school, 60 firearms deaths—including 20 child deaths—were associated with the tragedy. To put this in perspective, there were around 45 accidental gun deaths per month in the U.S. in 2012. An increase of 60 in five months is substantial.

The research was published yesterday in Science.

California taxpayer cost for mass murderer Scott Dekraai’s case tops $2.5 million

If all goes as expected, the worst mass killer in Orange County history, Scott Dekraai, will be sentenced Friday, Sept. 22, to eight terms of life without parole, one term each for the people he fatally shot in Seal Beach six years ago.

But the sentence comes with a relatively high price tag after a judge rejected the death penalty and concluded local prosecutors and sheriff’s deputies had engaged in misconduct, according to records and interviews.

As of Sept. 6, the Dekraai case has cost taxpayers at least $2.5 million, according to an analysis by the Southern California News Group. That estimate would make the case more than twice as expensive as an average death penalty case – $1.08 million – from the date of arrest to sentencing, according to a 2011 study by a Loyola Law School professor and a senior federal appellate court judge.
