New Haven Native Jim Leonard Gets a Jump "Close to Home"

Jim Leonard, Jr., New Haven High School '74, should be feeling much better this week. He is the creator of the new CBS drama "Close to Home." As Indiana Parley told you last week, the CBS Television Network bumped "Close to Home" from Tuesday to Friday nights during sweeps period.

It has turned out to be a very good move for the survival of the series. "Close to Home" is set in Indianapolis.
In its first night in its new Friday timeslot, “Home” averaged a 3.2 18-49 rating, up 10 percent from the 2.9 it averaged in its old timeslot. More important, it held onto 98 percent of hit lead-in “Ghost Whisperer’s” audience, drawing 4.18 million 18-49s. Among total viewers, “Home” actually outpaced “Whisperer,” averaging 11.9 million versus the latter’s 11.4 million.
"Major props" to Indiana Daily Insight .
